Former TV3 Presenter, Bridget Otoo, has lashed out at Chief Executive Officers of Ghanaian media houses after news broke about the suspension of Angel FM's Captain Smart.
On Thursday, May 6, 2021, YEN.com.gh reported that the host of the station's morning show, Anopa Bofour, had been taken off the airwaves. It was later confirmed by Kwadwo Dickson, the station's General Manager.
"Captain Smart’s issue isn’t an isolated one, there are so many presenters who are threatened daily for saying things that aren’t favourable to gov’t," tweeted Otoo in reaction to the news.

"The sad aspect is you have CEOs with zero balls and would throw you under the bus #FixTheCountry #FixTheCountryGhana."
"Captain Smart got suspended for only speaking about @MBawumia incompetence, imagine what would have happened if he had called @NAkufoAddo super super incompetence. Indeed Mahama tolerance made him a saint," commented Jake Ami.
Dominic K. Obeng wrote: "His suspension is a setback for free speech and press freedom. The press must be able to criticise govt without fear of oppression or losing their jobs. Criticism is unpleasant but it must spur us on to assess ourselves, become more accountable, and to chart a better path."
MC Mens suggested that Captain broadcast his own show on Facebook: "Captain smart kraa he dey worry ein body kraa dodo! There's Facebook live why worry yourself! You get the name already just go there on your own page. The message will still go even better!!! #FixTheCountryGhana Now!"
