Our manifesto: This is what YEN.com.gh believes in
Bridget Otoo, a former TV3 Presenter, says Captain Smart's suspension by Angel FM would not have happened if her former boss, Osei Boakye was in charge.
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.
It is believed that Captain Smart made some not-so-nice comments about people in government. Some people believe his suspension is a form of power play to gag the media, and Bridget Otoo has expressed her view on the matter.
"This is why Osei Boakye - former editor of TV3 was different, a politician would dare not tell him to take a presenter off or replace with a presenter they like," commented Bridget Otoo.
"But these new media managers, some square pegged would jump cos they don’t even know the job!"
In the list sighted by YEN.com.gh, the Akufo-Addo-Bawumia-led NPP indicated that their government inherited a number of issues from their predecessor and was working to fix them.
The tall list included the provision of WiFi services to all 722 senior high schools in the country, 46 colleges of education, 260 district education offices, and 13 public universities.
Another issue the government is said to have fixed is graduate unemployment with the creation of the Nation Builders Corps (NABCO).
The Akufo-Addo-led NPP government also claim to be the first country in Africa to implement a universal QR code payment system to solve the issue of the overreliance on cash-dominant payment system.
