Former News Editor at Denkyiraman Radio at Dunkwa On-Offin in the Central Region, Andrews Owusu popularly known as Obidombie Owusu Asuomi has expressed shock over his dismissal.

According to him, the claim that he is using the radio station platform to support Alan Kyeremateng’s Movement for Change (MFC) is not true.

Adding that even the Electoral Commission (EC) of Ghana who is independent according to the constitution belongs to a particular political party.

Andrews Owusu has been sacked by his employers for allegedly supporting Alan Kyeremateng’s Movement for Change (MFC).

The management further accused him of insubordination despite several warnings and queries.

Speaking in an interview with Kasapa News Yaw Boagyan, he (Andrews Owusu) rejected the allegations saying he has not done anything wrong.

“I know my colleagues are very worried. I am not the type of person who will disrespect authority. I have not done anything wrong. I am doing my work according to the rules and regulations of the radio station and media law and ethics. Why should I work for a political party who doesn’t pay me while the party has communicators who receive allowances” He said.

“Management claims I am supporting Alan. Even granted that is true, the constitution doesn’t ban me from supporting a political party? Even the Electoral Commission, Jean Mensah who is supposed to be neutral casts her vote for a political party during elections. I am shocked? The former News Editor stated.

The Management believe allowing their employee to openly support a political party’ activities will tarnish their image.
