Indecent expressions on radio go up after Election Petition Verdict

The latest findings from the Media Foundation for West Africa’s (MFWA) language monitoring show that the use of indecent expressions on radio has gone up.

The monitoring which covers the week just after the Verdict (September 1 – 7, 2013) recorded a total of 16 indecent remarks.

According to the report, on a week-on-week basis, the 16 indecent expressions is the highest incidence of indecent expressions on radio since monitoring began on August 1, 2013.

The findings also show that affiliates and sympathisers of the main opposition party, the New Patriotic Party (NPP) were the most abusive on radio.

The Accra-based Oman FM registered the highest incidence of indecent expressions and was closely followed by the Techiman-based Classic FM.
