A broadcast journalist with Angel FM 102.9FM a subsidiary of Angel Broadcasting Network(ABN), Godsbrain Smart popularly known as Captain Smart has given an account of circumstances leading to his suspension.
The vociferous Captain Smart has detailed that his suspension from air was orchestrated by some powerful persons with the corridors of power at the Labone Coffee Shop.
Captain Smart disclosed that the people at the meeting indicated that he is becoming too loud and making some people within power unpopular.
Speaking on Good Evening Ghana on Thursday, May 6, 2021, he revealed that he has been given a one-month suspension by his employers.
He told Paul Adom-Otchere that he was informed by his bosses that his show dubbed “Fa be wo so” has become a thorn in the flesh of the Akufo-Addo led government.
According to him, Dr. Kweku Oteng personally informed him that he had been accused of describing Akufo-Addo, Dr. Bawumia, Alan Kyerematen, and the IGP as fools on air.
Based on this, Captain Smart indicated that he was ordered to step aside until the pressure goes down.
“So, I told him that sir, I can say all sorts of things in this world but to go to that extent to say that the President of the land, the Vice, the IGP, and Alan Kyerematen are fools, no! if you can provide me with the evidence, I will apologise to the world and resign from your company”.
“In the course of the conversation, he told me that because of the pressure, when I close from work today [Thursday, May 6] he would want me to go off air for some time and when the pressure from above comes down, then I can resume. So, I said OK, if that was going to help you, [fine]. Because I am just one individual and you have all these companies, if Captain Smart alone will bring your company down, why not, I will do that [step aside] for you.”
