THE Volta Regional chapter of the Ghana Journalists Association (GJA) has expressed dismay at what it described as a “boyish” behaviour by some activists of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) who disrupted the morning show of Kekeli Radio in Ho last Friday.

The activists were said to have forcibly entered the radio station ostensibly to assault a panellist and disrupted the show for about one hour.

In a swift reaction to the incident, Mr Anthony Bells Kafui Kanyi, Volta GJA chairman, said at the weekend that the association considers the NPP’s activists conduct uncivilised, an act of lawlessness, and a clear demonstration of the lack of responsibility by their part and an attack on the freedom of speech.

“We condemn their conduct in no uncertain term,” he added.

The Volta GJA chairman made it clear that the association was unhappy about how political parties were gradually making radio stations their battle ground for their intra and inter-party conflicts.

“We hope the police act swiftly on such reports,” he stated.

Mr Kanyi called on media houses to tighten security at the premises.

Meanwhile, he has called for full police investigations into an alleged attack on two journalists on assignment at the Keta Municipal Assembly at the weekend, by some leading members of the NPP in the region.
