Speaking in a video sighted by, the Angel FM GM explained that Captain Smart had been suspended not for criticising the government but for personal attacks on members of the government.

According to Kwadwo Dickson, Captain Smart had made utterances against President Akufo-Addo, his vice, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia, Trade Minister, Alan Kyerematen, Inspector General of Police (IGP), James Oppong Boanuh, among others.

The suspension, he added, has come after Captain Smart failed to heed to advice and warnings to desist from such personal attacks.

Captain Smart's suspension from Angel FM's morning show comes almost one year after he joined the station.

Captain Smart was unveiled as the show's host on May 28, 2020, with a flyer giving details of the veteran broadcaster's programme.

The unveiling of Captain Smart came after he resigned from Adom FM. Captain Smart officially announced his resignation on his Dwaso Nsem morning show on Wednesday, May 27, 2020.
