Zoomlion Denies Buying Live 91.9 FM

Bola Ray, CEO of EIB Network

The management of Zoomlion Ghana Limited has denied reports that it has bought Live FM, one of the subsidiaries of the EIB Group.

Reports over the weekend alleged that that the leading waste management company has taken over the management of Live FM after buying it from EIB.

But in a press statement issued on Monday by an unnamed communications director, the company described the reports of the acquisition as “false”.

It has also considered taking a legal action against media platforms which published the false claims.

“The attention of Management of Zoomlion Ghana Limited has been drawn to a publication by some online media platforms that Live 91.9 FM, one of the FM stations belonging to the EIB Network, has allegedly been bought by the waste management giant, Zoomlion Ghana Limited. We wish to state very strongly that the allegations contained in the said publications are false,” the statement said.

“Zoomlion Ghana Limited has not contemplated the acquisition of the FM station. Clearly, the publication is a wicked and calculated attempt to pit Zoomlion Ghana Limited against the EIB Network. As a leading waste management company, Zoomlion Ghana Limited recognises and appreciates the important role of the media in its quest to ensure a clean and healthy Ghana. Zoomlion Ghana Limited, therefore, wishes to assure Ghanaians that its focus will continue to be on working assiduously to help the country address its sanitation problems,” it indicated.

“Meanwhile, we have referred the matter to our legal team for the right cause of action,” the statement concluded.
