The Kwahu Traditional Council has issued a ban to the National Democratic Congress (NDC) and its radio stations after the party defied the Council’s directive against the invoking of curses within the Traditional Area.
The ban ceases them from conducting political activities in the area.
This comes after executives of the NDC in the Eastern Region including the party’s Regional Communications Officer, Dallas Williams, Sidi Bello Deputy Regional Youth Organizer, Daniel Aboagye a former youth organizer and others were spotted at River Trado in Nkawkaw invoking curses on persons alleged to have been transported to the region by the ruling NPP to register in the ongoing voters’ registration exercise.
The Linguist of the Kwahu Traditional Area, Nana Akouko Boateng said the the action of the NDC is an offence that needs to be punished. Further more, the party’s radio stations in the area are to be closed down.
“…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,” the council said.
