But for the swift intervention of the studio producers and the host, the District Chief Executive for Sekyere Afram Plains would have traded blows during a live studio radio discussion on Akoma FM’s weekend flagship programme Wonsom with former Municipal Chief Executive for Obuasi.
The heated confrontation ensued after the DCE, Joseph Owusu, popularly known as Odenkyem, representing the New Patriotic Party (NPP) on the program, took on the former MCE, Kwasi Ofori Agyemang, who represented the National Democratic Congress (NDC), for questioning Deputy Railways Minister Andy Appiah Kusi’s submission on the cost of the Kumasi-Obuasi railways project yet to begin in Ashanti Region.
What appeared to have been a normal, friendly studio discussion of ideas turned into the trading of insults and serious verbal abuse, resulting in a near brutal scuffle.
But for the timely intervention of the host, Aduanaba Kofi Asante Ennin, a different story would have been told.
The host had to abruptly break for over 10 minutes to calm the two hot-tempered politicians down.
The two panelists had to unreservedly apologize to listeners of the programme after of them expressed their disappointment at their action.
