Host of Metro TV’s “Good Evening Ghana”, Paul Adom-Otchere has responded to the General Secretary of the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Johnson Asiedu Nketia over a lotto comment.
Refuted the disparaging claims by Mr. Asiedu Nketiah, the broadcast journalist revealed that his political analysis on his show was a “scholarly political analysis from the stables of Cicero” contrary to what Asiedu Nketiah has alluded to.
Paul Adom-Otchere rubbished claims that his analysis on the show was aimed at sowing seeds of discontent in the NDC.
“That is not lotto, maybe the only forecast Asiedu Nketia knows is lotto but that is analysis. He himself used the word ‘analysis’ so we are analyzing; we do not know who the NDC will select and we didn’t say here that we had spoken to any NDC guy.
“We are accustomed to doing that but you can call it lotto forecasting if that is what you know. We put out the thesis, we anticipate the antithesis and we put out the synthesis.”
The reply follows an interview by Mr. Asiedu Nketia, Paul Adom-Otchere behaves like a “village lotto forecaster who is analyzing lotto numbers”.
Mr. Asiedu Nkekiah during the interview said: “I have seen some analysis on Metro TV by Paul Adom-Otchere. Whenever I see it, I see it as someone who is working for lotto numbers.
“How can you pair Asiedu Nketia, John Mahama, Bagbin…like a village lotto forecaster…the analysis is not scientific.”
