A lecturer in Sociology at the KNUST Dr. Peter Jumah has advised the Ga Traditional Council to reverse its decision on the Montie 3 contemnors.
The Council is under fire for joining the clarion call for President John Mahama to grant mercy to the convicted radio panellists and journalists serving jail term for contempt.
Host of Montie FM’s political talk show ‘Pampaso’ Salifu Maase, popularly known as Mugabe, and two panellists, Alistair Nelson, and Godwin Ako Gunn both of the National Democratic Congress were jailed four months by the Supreme Court on Wednesday for contempt.
Speaking on the issue, Dr Jumah advised the Council to reconsider its posture.
“Assuming the President accedes to that, what will be the implications for the wider society? Does it mean that when we have criminals or criminal intentions, those authorities can just check in, what kind of society will we be building?
“It calls for re-examination of their role within the society for them to engage in activities that will ensure unity and integration in the society”.
