Management of Oyerepa FM has apologised to Manhyia Palace over some comments made by businessman Mr Akwasi Odike while on air.
Oyerepa TV stated in an apology letter dated the 23rd of August that Akwasi Odike’s comments are “unpalatable” adding that they have no intention of disrespecting the Royal House.
“The host of the show asked him to desist from attacking the Royal House. Several attempts to stop Odike proved futile and the host had to change the topic on Galamsey since he(Odike) was not heeding to his call.” Part of the statement read
The businessman while speaking in a discussion titled “THE RATE AT WHICH GALAMSEY OPERATIONS IN THE REGION HAS DESTROYED AND STILL DESTROYING OUR LANDS” on Oyerepa FM made some damning allegations toward the chiefs of Menhyia Palace for failing to curb the galamsey menace faced in the region.
He called on the youth to rise up and demand that chiefs come clear on their stance against galamsey.
Mr Akwasi Odike’s comments have been described as disrespectful, unsubstantiated and distasteful meant to tarnish the image of Manhyia.
The traditional council of Manhyia slaughtered a ram to their gods to help resist any rebellion from the youth.
The businessman in hot soup has unapologetically stated that his comments are not meant to disrespect anyone.
However, days after this, Mr Odike was also attacked in his office by some unknown gunmen who ended up destroying his properties.
