The Kwahu Traditional Council in the Eastern Region has ordered the closure of two pro-NDC radio stations, Kwahu FM and Afram FM by midday today July 9.
The Traditional Council has also banned all political activities of the opposition National Democratic Congress in the Kwahu Traditional Area.
The announcement was made today at a press briefing addressed by Nana Akouko Boateng, Chief linguist to Kwahuhene Daasebre Akuamoah Boateng today at his palace .
According to the traditional council, the NDC failed to honour a summon for invoking curses on Kwahu land on non-residents who attempted to register in the ongoing voters registration exercise.
The traditional council accused the NDC officials led by Mark Oliver Kevor for calling them hypocrites on his two radio stations.
The Opposition National Democratic Congress NDC, in the region has since the beginning of the voters registration exercise invoked two major curses on Kwahu land, one in River Nkwakwamu in Nkawkaw and the other in Kwahu Afram Plains South, against non-residents being smuggled to register in their stronghold constituencies .
According to the party executives, they have resorted to invoking curses as a result of the security agencies failure to stop the busing of non-residents to its stronghold constituencies by elements of the ruling New Patriotic Party ostensibly to win the seats.
The Regional Communication Director of the Party Dallas Williams believes their actions are in demand for natural justice in lieu of diminishing justice in the country due to lethargic attitude by the police .
However, a statement issued by the Eastern Regional Director of the ruling NPP David Prah stated that “Eastern Regional Executives of the New Patriotic Party need not to bus people outside to Afram Plains to register before winning that seat this time around, looking at the impeccable records of development and human centered policies carried out by the government of President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo Addo.”
“The people of Afram Plains and the entire Eastern Region are the living witnesses of the massive developmental projects going on and will vote overwhelmingly for Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo and the NPP Parliamentary Candidate.”
The Statement added “the only challenge of the NDC is that they as a party are ill-prepared for the voter registration exercise. It should be noted that not a single incidence has happened in the region. We in the NPP are seriously mobilising people to register and for sure, we will continue to do that.”
“The Eastern Regional Executives of the NPP are on the ground carrying effective monitoring to ensure that the voting public register towards the victory 2020 for Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo and the NPP”.
