Popular radio presenter with Angel FM, Captain Smart, is alleged to have been taken off air by his boss for overly criticising the government.
This was revealed by Franklin Cudjoe of Imani Africa.
According to his post sighted by YEN.com.gh, Captain Smart’s boss has been under pressure by some high-ranking members in government to take him off following his incessant commentary on national affairs making the government unpopular.
The post has triggered massive reactions from Ghanaians.
Amandu, for instance, criticised the government:
Albert also condemned the government:
Geoffrey believes the government is still intimidating people:
Goodluck wrote that Akufo-Addo should not have been president in the first place:
Papa Chris suspected Akufo-Addo himself of being the one behind Captain Smart's pressure:
Amponsah was also angry with the development:
Meanwhile, Captain Smart's issue is coming at a time that Ghanaians have started the #fixthecountry campaign against the government.
The #fixthecountry campaign is to register their displeasure at the president following the nearly 5% increment in fuel and petroleum prices.
Following the hullabaloo this caused, the National Petroleum Authority (NPA), has reduced the fuel margin by 8 pesewas per litre at the pump.
Also, an old video of how Archbishop Nicholas Duncan-Williams predicted the #fixthecountry campaign a few years ago has surfaced online.
He was speaking in an interview with Metro TV’s Paul Adom Otchere in which he revealed that there will be a youth uprising in Ghana if the leaders fail to act.
Duncan-Williams added that this will not be witnessed only in Ghana but also in other West African countries. He specifically mentioned 2021and 2022.
He explained that the youth will be frustrated and fed up with failed promises by the leaders and will act in unison to call for change and reforms.
