Ace Broadcast Journalist Paul Adom-Otchere has called on investigative journalist Manasseh Azure Awuni to learn to respect chiefs in the country.
This follows a tweet by Manasseh describing chiefs in the country as paid praise singers and sycophants. In reaction to last Saturday's booing of President Akufo-Addo, Manasseh took to social media to accuse President Akufo-Addo of surrounding himself with sycophants, including chiefs who are refusing to tell him the true state of affairs in the country.
But in an editorial, the host of Metro TV's Good Evening Ghana Show said such tweets by Manasseh are very disrespectful and called on him to delete them immediately.
Mr Adom-Otchere added that the contribution of chiefs to Ghana's democratic journey could not be underestimated.

Explaining further, he said traditional leaders like Togbe Afede do not engage in praise singing of the Akufo-Addo-led government.
"Do you know what it takes to be a chief? You think the chiefs are some people who are not serious, like the way you write on Twitter. Chiefs are serious people," he said.
