Audio Attachment:MP for Bantama, Hon. Cecilia Abena Dapaah, speaking in Parliament said confessions made on Peace FM’s late afternoon programme "Ekwanso Brebre" is ample testimony of some of the inhuman treatment meted out to women by men.
The august House in session.
The MP for Bantama, Hon. Cecilia Abena Dapaah, has cited Peace FM’s Drive Time programme, “Ekwanso Brebre”, hosted by Fiifi Banson in the evening, as one that reveals some of the inhuman treatment meted out to women by men. Hon. Dapaah stated this in Parliament in her contribution to a statement made by Hon. Mary Boforo Salifu, MP for Savelugu on “Violence Against Women.”
According to the MP, who said she listens to Peace FM’s late afternoon programme often, the confession made by some women in the programme about the severe beatings they suffer from their husbands before sex is very horrible. She therefore appealed to the public to help stop all forms of violence against women.
“Ekwanso Brebre” addresses social issues in our communities by giving the platform to sexes to publicly share their experiences on selected issues on a given day.
Issues that have already been treated include “Confessions about having children outside marriage without the spouses’ knowledge”; “Shocking revelation that your newly wedded husband is impotent”, “Having a mistress/girlfriend outside marriage”, “Outrageous and weird cases of domestic violence”, “Wives who claim their husbands have refused to make love to them for years”, “Ladies who have been raped”, “Wives who claim their husbands are unaware that they (husbands) did not father their children”, etc.
The programme, described by Francis Doku, a “Graphic Showbiz” columnist, as the opening of Pandora’s Box, has also witnessed some shocking revelations by some men on why they cheat on their wives, and reasons assigned by some men regarding why they find it hard to engage their wives in love-making.
Fiifi Banson, Host of "Ekwanso Brebre" on PEACEFM. He and his production team have managed to get the whole country talking about his "Drive Talk programme, not excluding Parliament.
Interestingly, all these topics have enjoyed an immense listener participation judging from the calls that flood the PEACEFM studio. Callers are however, impressed upon not to identify themselves nor mention the name(s) of their partners.
A few weeks back, an hysterical woman called into the programme, admitting having a child with another man, whiles the husband believes the child is his own. What compounded the situation, was the fact that a DNA test had to be conducted in a few days time to ascertain whether the child was fathered by the husband, before he (the child) could be granted a visa. A move, the woman vehemently protested. The husband could not understand his wife’s sudden u-turn on the visa acquisition.
But after making that mind-boggling confession on-air, she was counseled by experts (clinical psychologists) the station provided her with and was able to tell the husband the truth, albeit in an emotionally charged atmosphere.
For more on some of these bizarre yet true revelations, just tune into PEACEFM every weekday from 5pm to 6pm.
Fiifi Banson, the host and his extraordinary production crew headed by Fadda Dickson and his able lieutenants Victoria Koranteng, Steve Baffour and Alex Ofei, will keep you hanging by a hair's-breadth.
