A Kumasi based radio station, Fox FM has been given three days to name officials of the ruling National Democratic Congress it allegedly accused of stealing materials for the building of the Bui dam.

The ultimatum was given by the Ashanti Regional General Secretary of the NDC, Joseph Yasmeen in an interview with Joy News on Wednesday.

The station is alleged to have serialised circumstances under which cement bought for the construction of the Bui Dam had been diverted into private hands.

The station is reported to have said that the diversion had stalled progress of work on the Bui Dam project.

Mr. Yasmeen said the station also alleged that members of the NDC had a hand in the diversion of the cement and promised to expose those individuals.

He said the party’s ultimatum is aimed at a speedy resolution of the matter, adding it is just to give “moral support” to the station.

“If government officials are indicted in such a corrupt and criminal act the party needs to be concerned and make sure such people are evicted from the party,” he said.

Mr Yasmeen said the party will consider taking punitive action against the individuals if they are found culpable.

He said they have reported the case to the Bureau of National Investigations, the police and other security agencies.

Mr. Yasmeen said failure by the station to mention the names of these officials will give credence to the notion that the media is creating fear and panic in the country.

But the Morning Show host of Fox FM, Blessed Smart, said the ultimatum by the NDC in the region is without foundation.

According to Blessed Smart, at no point did the station alleged that officials of the NDC were behind the diversion.

He said it was the BNI the station criticised for not doing enough to unravel the truth behind the diversion.
