The Kumasi Traditional Council’s decision to shut down a radio station, according to A Plus, was improper.
The controversial entertainer said, “If the Ga traditional council or the Volta regional house of chiefs close down a media house because they have been accused of a crime on their platform, this country will be ungovernable,” in a response that Modernghana News saw today, August 26, on his Facebook page. This is improper.
His statement comes in response to the Kumasi Traditional Council’s directive to the Oyerepa FM and TV management to temporarily suspend operations beginning today, Friday, August 26, 2022.
In addition, the traditional council is requesting an unequivocal apology from the station’s management for remarks made on its platform by Akwasi Addai Odike, the party’s founder and leader.
Investigative journalist Manasseh Azure Awuni has also voiced his opinion on the subject. He has criticized the Kumasi chiefs’ move, claiming that the council cannot shut down a radio station in accordance with the constitution.
