The New Patriotic Party in a Facebook post on Saturday, November 14, 2020, sighted by GhanaWeb, announced its decision to pull out of the program citing biased paneling by the producers as the reason for withdrawing from the show.
Reacting to the decision of the NPP, Kwame A-Plus who is a sympathizer stated that the ruling political party that has claimed to have performed beyond expectations do not need equal paneling on a show to make a good case to Ghanaians.
A Plus added that the Newsfile analysis show is not a “football match” where every team is required to produce ten players and a goalkeeper each before the game starts.
“Who said Newsfile is a football match where there must be 11 players from each side? If you are going, to tell the truth, does it matter how many NDC people are there? You built one village one pothole and told us it’s one village one dam,” he wrote.
“You planned to steal all our mineral revenue and give it to your sakawa boys and told us you are going to invest it for higher returns. You gave the whole ECG to your barber and his girlfriend and came to tell us Kweku Ananse stories
“You promised that you won’t run a family and friends’ government but your girlfriend and family members have occupied everywhere. You promised to reduce ministers but now your ministers are many than members of Agona Odoben Christ Outreach Ministries,” he added.

Today (14 November 2020), the NPP has decided to pull out of Multimedia’s Newsfile programme due to the constant and consistent biased paneling of guests.
All our complaints on the paneling have landed on deaf ears and as such, we deem it necessary to pull out of the show today. Ghanaians deserve a balanced assessment of every issue. Sadly, today’s panel, just like in recent weeks, is not balanced.
It is our hope that empanelling will be done in a fair manner on subsequent editions to enable us participate.
