In Ghanaian society, when one chalks success in a chosen field, be it being hooked for marriage, gaining employment or securing promotion, an apprentice concluding his/her training period or a student completing a course study, there is jubilation and the pouring of body powder to celebrate the fellow.
Well at Lartebiokoshie, where ‘Power Station’, Radio Gold, Gold TV and Montie FM is based, the studios were ‘lit’ when information emanated that indeed the president had remitted the sentences of Salifu Maase alias Mugabe, Alistair Nelson and Ako Gunn, who were sentenced to four months imprisonment plus fined GHS10, 000.00 each for contempt of court, the thought of beholding them on August 26, 2016 was euphoric with powder poured on some of the jubilant staff.
For after all it was on the premises and in the Montie FM studios that those offensive language were spewed but it also true that it was at the same premises that the petition to harvest 1 million votes was orchestrated.
For journalist and show host, Sammy Kojo Ablordepey he poured himself a drink to toast the imminent return of his colleague Mugabe and friends Gun and Alistair as viewed on his Facebook page.
“A bottle of Club Beer and Jack Daniels Tennessee Honey to celebrate the release of my brothers Mugabe Maase, Alistair Tairo Nelson and Ako Gunn. To God be the glory!!”
