Closing Oyerepa FM not right — A Plus slams Kumasi Chiefs
Ghanaian entertainer and social critic Kwame Asare Obeng, better known as A Plus, has joined others criticizing the Kumasi Traditional Council for the ban on Oyerepa FM.
A Plus says it was wrong for the Kumasi Traditional Council to shut down a radio station.
In a reaction seen by Modernghana News today, August 26, on his Facebook handle, the controversial entertainer stated that, “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. This is not right.”
His comment follows the Kumasi Traditional Council order to the management of Kumasi-based Oyerepa FM and TV to temporarily halt operations from today, Friday, August 26, 2022.
In addition, the traditional council is demanding an unqualified apology from the management of the station over comments made by the leader and founder of the United Progressive Party, Akwasi Addai Odike, on its platform.
Also sharing his thoughts on the matter, investigative journalist Manasseh Azure Awuni has kicked against the action taken by the Kumasi chiefs, arguing that the council per the constitution cannot shut down a radio station.
