The administration of Oyerepa FM, situated in Kumasi, has been asked to resume operations after disagreements with the management were resolved by the Kumasi Traditional Council.
This came after the Chiefs accused the media outlet of permitting statements against them to be made on its platform.
Refuting claims that they ordered the media outlet to close, members of the Council who spoke in turn about the matter assert that they instead advised Oyerepa FM management to temporarily suspend operations until the matter was settled.
The Asokore Mamponghene, Nana Boakye Ansah Debrah, was begged by the radio station’s management to guide the group for its second presentation before the traditional council.
A representative of the Asokore Mampong chief headed the team to make their case, flanked by other leaders of the Methodist Church of Ghana.
Prof. Emmanuel Asante, a former head of the Peace Council, lent his support to the cause.
He reveals that strict controls have been put in place to make sure that radio show panelists do not have any opportunities to disobey authority.
We arrived in a spirit of humility to beg Asanteman to forgive them.
And praise God, they granted our request; thus, they asked them to return to their jobs, Prof. Asante informed the media.
The Banatamahene Baffour Amankwatia VI, the head of the Kumasi Traditional Council, was begged to pardon them by each of the council’s fourteen divisional chiefs.
Baffour Owusu Amankwatia VI, the Bantamahene and acting president of the Kumasi Traditional Council, declared that the Council had accepted the apology and requested that Oyerepa Fm start broadcasting.
