THE Omanhene of Goaso, Nana Akwasi Bosomprah, has denied media allegations that he has threatened to banish two New Patriotic Party (NPP) serial callers from the town.
He described the allegation as "malicious and baseless" and wondered how he could stoop so low to do such a thing in this era of democratic advancement.
The serial callers, popularly known as D.J. Omaale and Wayoosi, have reportedly accused the Omanhene of warning them to desist from making derogatory remarks against President Mills and his government or he will banish them from the town.
However, in a telephone interview with the Daily Graphic yesterday, Nana Bosomprah said even though he had spoken with the two young men, he never warned them because of their political affiliations.
He explained that it was on a communal labour day when he called the two young men, who are citizens of Goaso.
Nana Bosomprah said he told them that when they were sending their text messages to radio stations, they should try and remind the government that there was no ambulance at the Goaso Hospital and that apart from the need for an ambulance, the hospital also needed more doctors.
"I even added that when they needed money to send text messages on my concerns, I would be ready to provide it," he added.
The Omanhene stated that he was, therefore, surprised to hear on radio and read in some of the newspapers that he had warned the two men to desist from saying any negative things against the NDC.
He said the father of the two men, who are biological brothers, went to him and apologised to him (Omanhene) for all the negative twists that had been given the development.
The Omanhene said he was aware that some political figures in the town were behind what was going on.
He called for unity in the town to see the area advance its development agenda, instead of creating political divisions which would not help the people in any way.
