The Management of Asempa FM, a subsidiary of the Multimedia Group Ltd, has rendered a profound apology to former President John Mahama over some “uncensored” remarks made by one of its staff on air Monday.
The staff, Nana Akua Acheampomaa Sarfo-Adu, while presenting a show, “Kanawu” on the Accra-based radio station did not mince words in expressing her displeasure over some recent actions of the former President she considered ‘pretentious’.
She suggested that politicians in the country were taking Ghanaians for granted and urged the citizens to be wary of their (politicians) manipulative behaviours.
John Mahama was recently spotted with a mower weeding at the roundabout of the road popularly referred to as ‘Mahama Road’ linking Teshie, 37, Spintex Road and Airport because “it was obstructing motorists.”
The move, Nana Akua considers hypocritical of the NDC presidential candidate and chastised him heavily for that.
But in a letter, dated November 12, 2019, written to the former president and signed by its Programmes Director, Samuel Yirenkyi, and its Head of News and Current Affairs, A.C Ohene, the station issued an unqualified apology, assuring the Former President that all internal measure have been taken to forestall a similar situation in future.
“The Management of Asmepa 94.7 FM wishes to unreservedly, apologise to you former President John Dramani Mahama over the conduct of one of our on-air staff, Nana Akua Acheampomaa Sarfo-Adu.
“Nana Akua, while presenting one of our shows, dubbed ‘Kanawu’, used words that were unpleasant to your person.
“As a result, the Management of the station wishes to unreservedly apologise to you on its own behalf and on behalf of the presenter, Nana Akua Acheampomaa Sarfo-Adu,” the letter said.
The letter also stated, “Please be assured that we have taken all the internal measures necessary to prevent this unfortunate incident from recurring.
“Kindly accept our apology,” it added.
