Andy Appiah-Kubi, MP for Asante-Akim North Denies Orchestrating the Closure of Salt FM

Kubi firmly stated that the shutdown was not initiated or influenced by any government official within his knowledge.

Andy Appiah-Kubi, the Member of Parliament for Asante Akim North, has categorically denied any hand in the closure of Salt 95.9 FM, a prominent radio station in the Ashanti Region.

Responding to accusations linking him and the NPP government to the shutdown, the lawmaker expressed surprise and clarified that he had no discussions with the National Communications Authority (NCA) officials regarding Salt FM’s closure.

He distanced himself from the situation, emphasizing that he was unaware of any government attempt to close the radio station in his constituency.

Reports indicate a demonstration against NCA, Kubi, and the NPP government allegedly triggered during a health walk organised by Salt FM’s owner, Charles Ohene Kwame Frimpong.

Suspecting a “well-planned and calculated political interest” behind the demonstrations, possibly by political opponents in Asante Akim North, Kubi cautioned against leveraging partisan politics to tarnish reputations.

Despite the controversy, Kubi pledged solidarity with Salt FM, vowing to use his position as an MP to support the station in resuming its broadcast soon.
