The National Communication Officer of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), Sammy Gyamfi did not have it easy when he showed up on Peace FM’s ‘Kokrokoo’ programme hosted by Kwami Sefa Kayi on Friday morning.

Kwami Sefa Kayi who expressed surprise that Sammy Gyamfi had defamed him, and when he [Kwami] confronted him, Gyamfi apologised privately.

And according to Sefa Kayi, they had agreed that, Gyamfi should apologise publicly but Gyamfi refused to do so, and instead, asked separate NDC members to go on various radio stations to repeat the defamatory words.

And so on Friday, April 12, 2019 morning, when Gyamfi walked into the studio as a studio panellist on a show that Sefa Kayi was the host, Sefa Kayi expressed surprise that he “was able to come on his show after insulting him on another radio station.

He, therefore, asked him to leave his studio.

Sammy Gyamfi after the NDC National Chairman, Mr Samuel Ofosu Ampofo’s alleged leaked tape accused the renowned journalist [Kwami Sefa Kayi] of being a ‘hypocrite’.

According to him, Sefa Kayi did not play other leaked tapes from the New Patriotic Party (NPP) but did give importance and played Ofosu Ampofo’s leaked tape.

“These bunch of hypocrite journalists will never play leaked tapes on their shows so far as they have negative repercussions on the NPP. However, they are quick to play leaked tapes that involve the NDC like we are seeing today,” Sammy Gyamfi said at the time on Okay FM, which is a sister station to Peace FM.

Initially on Friday morning, when Sefa Kayi raised the issue and asked Gyamfi to leave the studio, Gyamfi sounded unapologetic because according to him, the issue was in the past.

Panel members on the show, including former NPP Bantama constituency MP, Henry Kwabena Kokofu and Tarkwa Nsuaem NPP MP, George Mireku Duker asked him to apologise but he reluctantly did insisting it is in the past and that Sefa Kayi cannot use his platform to settle old scores.

However, the show host, Kwami Sefa Kayi allowed him to make his submission and Gyamfi apologised.
