The Youth United to Protect Democracy has taken the Host of the ‘Costa Show’ Mr. Henry Costa to task for his constant habit of raining insults on eminent personalities on the radio.
The youth group said it seriously condemns the Costa Show for bringing people of high esteem and other ordinary citizens to public disrepute through the spreading of false information and the raining of insults.
Addressing a news conference in Monrovia yesterday, the Chairman of the Youth Group, Jeremiah Blojay, noted that the Costa Show host is moving forward with impunity as he continues to rain insults on top government officials including the President of Liberia and other prominent citizens.
The Youth Group wondered why as a media institution, the Voice FM, the station on which the Costa show is being broadcast is not in the business of informing the Liberian people about development but continues to reduce itself to being a ‘paid agent’ for other politicians who have freely given them a transmitter.
The youth group vowed not to allow unscrupulous individuals such as Henry Costa to continue this un-journalistic behavior on citizens that are contributing immensely to the development and livelihood of the Liberian people.
According to the group’s chairman, such an individual should not be considered seriously because he is working as a ‘Paid Agent’ who is determined to spoil the peaceful gains made thus far in the country.
The group further said such a broadcast institution needs not exist as their activity has the propensity to derail the hard earned peace. The group called on the Government of Liberia (GOL) to judicially close the Costa Show as it is bent on creating confusion.
The youth group vowed to petition the National legislature in the name of peace to revoke the license of the station if the government fails to close it down for its anti-peace activities.
When contacted via mobile phone in the United States from hence Mr. Costa usually hosts his Costa Show via Skype and relayed by Voice FM, Mr. Costa said he does not have the time to answer to such report.
Mr. Costa said those who feel offended should check the dictionary and if not satisfied take him to court.
