Kwahu Traditional Council order closure of NDC radio stations in Kwahu


The activities of the opposition National Democratic Congress(NDC) may come to an end in the Kwahu area as Kwahu Traditional Council(KTC) has ordered closure of Radio stations aligned with the party.

This comes after some members of the party were seen invoking curses on persons alleged to have been imported in the region by the NPP to register in the ongoing voters registration exercise in the Trado river.

Announcing the ban, the Linguist of the Kwahu Traditional Area, Nana Akouko Boateng stated that the Council considers the action of the NDC party as an affront, hence the decision to crack the whip.

The Traditional Council further ordered the closure of two radio stations in the area sympathetic to the NDC and owned by the former Eastern Regional Secretary of the NDC, Mark Oliver Kervor.

“…We take a strong view of his conduct, you (Mark Oliver Kevor) were summoned before the Traditional Council but you refused to show up. You then go and sit on your radio stations which are located on Kwahu land and run us down. We order that the two stations belonging to Kevor – Okwahu FM and Afram FM be closed by 12:00pm today. If the stations continue to operate beyond the stipulated time, we’ll advise ourselves.

“Again, we’ve realized that the NDC party within the Kwahu land does not respect the traditional authority. Consequently, we’ve banned NDC from any party activities in this area. We don’t want to see any NDC flag, poster in the territorial area of Kwahu.”
