Captain Smart of the Angel Broadcasting Network who was just suspended has declared himself as a supporter of the New Patriotic Party.
In our system of ruling in Ghana, Journalists are by some reasons supposed to be neutral and keep the political parties they support off the spotlight.
As a matter of fact, for a top Ghanaian journalist like Captain Smart to make his favourite political party known by the general public was not expected.
Speaking in an interview with Kweku Sintim Misa on the KSM show, shown on Pan African TV, Captain Smart was deliberating on his critism to the government that lead to his suspension.
According to him, the fact that he is an NPP and sympathises with them does not mean he should keep mute if he sees something wrong.
“I sympathize with the NPP and I am an NPP, but because I love the party, if I see anything wrong I will never keep quiet.”
Captain Smart was suspended from his work as the host of “Anopa Bofour”, a morning show drive on Angel TV and Angel FM.
According to the CEO of Angel Group of Companies, Dr. Kwaku Oteng who called for Captain Smart’s suspension, a lot of pressure was mounted on him by the government officials.
This was because, Captain Smart was overcriticizing the president and his government officials for poor leadership in managing the economy.
