President of the Ada Youth Forum for Development, Enoch Tawiah advised Radio Ada to stop hiding behind free media to attack and insult traditional leaders in the community.
According to Enoch Tawiah, young people in the community are unhappy with the practice of the local radio station using its platform to air derogatory remarks about chiefs and people who have dissenting views from theirs.
He said that Radio Ada can never insult the Asantehene Otumfuo Osei Tutu II no matter what offense the king did if they were in Kumasi so that they don’t understand why they misbehaved in their preponderance.
”My advice on behalf of the young people at Radio Ada is that they are our brothers and sisters and we appreciate the good work they have done for the community, but they should review some of their programs to bring peace. They should stop disrespecting traditional rulers because they can’t do that if they were operating in Kumasi. They should put an end to the insults.”
He also thanked the chief for accepting the ElectroChem Ada Songor Salt project which created many job opportunities for them.
“Radio Ada does not allow people with opposing views to share it on its platform. In Ada, we young people need lots of job opportunities due to the high unemployment rate and we are happy with the arrival of the Songor development project,” Enoch Tawiah told media during a briefing. Press.
