We will never allow any 'mallam' to advertise on our platform- Peace FM presenters speak out

The effects of allowing mallams to advertise their services on popular media platforms have been the talk of town in recent times. Ghanaians have shown massive displeasure in the fact that young people have been exposed to these mallams and the kind of services they offer through the media. In fact some people have even threatened to boycott these media spaces. Meanwhile, other people have shown their interest for the services of these mallams.

Particularly, the whole dilemma of mallams and their advertisement on media platforms heated up when news reports revealed the killing of a ten year old child in Kasoa. Ghanaians associated this issue to the fact that a mallam had influenced the killing of the child. With this conclusion, Ghanaians have called on the government to ban the activities of mallams and associated people in the media space.

Well, some of Peace FM's presenters have made some controversial statements regarding this issue. Speaking on Peace FM's newspapers review earlier this morning, Maame Beamah and Akosua Ago Aboagye made it clear to the public that they will never allow these mallams to advertise on their radio platform. They stressed on this statement by saying that, their FM station (Peace FM) will not allow anyone to deceive their listeners. They also added that the government should do well to prevent such things from happening.

Do you think it is right to allow for mallams and associated people to operate within the media space?
