Waste Management giant, Zoomlion Ghana Ltd, has flatly denied reports that it has acquired Live 91.9 FM, a radio station owned by Excellence In Broadcasting (EIB) Network.
Over the weekend, various online portals and social media were awash with stories of the acquisition of the urban youth station.
But Zoomlion in a statement said it has not thought of buying out the station urging the public to treat the report with the contempt that it deserves.
“Zoomlion Ghana Limited has not contemplated the acquisition of the FM station. Clearly, the publication is a wicked and calculated attempt to pitch Zoomlion Ghana Limited against the EIB Network.”
Below is the full statement
