COMMUNICATIONS MEMBER of the Ashanti Regional branch of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Ivan Bilson, says controversial serial caller Frank Kwaku Appiah aka ‘Appiah Stadium’ is not a card bearing member of the party.
Speaking on ‘Good Morning Boss’, the morning political show on BOSS 93.7 fm in Kumasi, Bilson noted that the NDC does not have any record that shows the notorious serial caller was a member of the party.
The NDC, the communicator posited, has been able to compile names of its members and Appiah Stadium’s name is not captured.
“I can say on authority that nowhere in our database do we have the serial caller who professes love for John Mahama as a registered or card bearing member”, Bilson told Wofa Kofi Appiah, the host of the programme.
The NDC communicator said the party does not recognise any activity or effort by the serial caller.
He noted that no action of Appiah stadium could therefore be considered as legitimate for the NDC party.
The NDC, he intimated, does not see the serial caller as a member since he does not possess any status showing same.
“The NDC cannot stop the serial caller from admiring or professing love for former flagbearer, John Mahama but on record he is not a registered or card bearing member of the NDC”, Bilson stated.
The NDC has been accused by the NPP for allegedly bribing a morning show host at Nhyira FM by name Nana Kwadwo Jantuah.
This was occasioned by a viral voice conversation where notorious serial caller Appiah Stadium is heard saying to someone on phone that a friend of the ex-president had given an amount of US$2000 and GHC 2000 to the Nhyira FM morning show host.
Despite the subsequent denial by Appiah stadium as well as the journalist concerned, the NPP insists that the matter should be thoroughly investigated since the actions and utterances of the show host makes it difficult to dismiss the claim of bribery.
Meanwhile, the NDC branch in Ashanti has dissociated itself from the claims of the serial caller who is known to be a sympathiser of the party.
