Captain Smart narrates what caused his suspension

Published

on

Captain Smart, the suspended host of Angel FM’s morning show has been narrating what caused his one-month suspension from Angel Broadcasting Network (ABN) after his birthday celebration on Wednesday, May 5.

According to Captain Smart, after his show on Wednesday, Samuel Kofi Acheampong a.k.a. Bronzy who is the Chief Executive Officer of ABN called him on the phone telling him that “there is so much pressure coming from left-right-centre” on the founding President of ABN, Dr Kwaku Oteng, so he Captain Smart should call the President of ABN.

“I told him that the night before yesterday [Wednesday], I have had an information that some people have met at the [Labone] Coffee Shop to plan what should happen,” Smart told the host of Good Evening Ghana on Thursday, May 6.

When asked what the meeting at the Coffee Shop was about, Captain Smart responded that the people at the meeting indicated that “Captain Smart is becoming too loud, he is making some people unpopular…”

He went on, “so yesterday [Wednesday] on air, I said that look if today, Kwaku Oteng says Captain I cannot work with you again, praise God. I will leave. I won’t be hungry because I’m not a lazy person; my brain works.

So, I called Dr Kwaku Oteng and he said some people within [….] Akufo-Addo’s government are calling him and have been writing him letters from Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA) just because they say I talk too much.

Smart said that he asked why and Oteng explained that he, Captain Smart, had stated in one of his morning shows that Akufo-Addo, Dr Bawumia, Alan Kyerematen and the IGP are fools.

“So, I asked on air? And he [Kwaku Oteng] responded that yes, you said it on air,” Smart narrated.

“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.”

Captain Smart further recounted that on-air on Thursday, May 6, after the usual introduction to his programme, Dr Kwaku Oteng called that “there is still pressure on him” so he [Captain Smart] told his employer “Senior let me drop it”.

He indicated further Kwadwo Dickson, the General Manager for Angel 102.9 FM was asked to send him his suspension letter but he told the GM that he was not going to step out because it was very late and he took a shot of it and sent it to him via WhatsApp.

IGP must support the #FixTheCountry movement

Published

The NDC Professionals Forum in the United States has called on the Inspector-General of Police and the police institution in Ghana to begin to find wisdom in the need to support the #FixTheCountry movement.

This is even more imperative after a police officer was fatally shot and killed in a broad daylight robbery in Accra on Monday the 14th of June when armed men on a motorcycle, opened fire on a bullion van transporting cash from a business hub to the bank.

We extend our condolences to the Ghana Police Service and the bereaved families. As a professional body, we believe that his unfortunate situation must trigger the police service to review its position on their hardcore stance in blocking a peaceful demonstration by Ghanaian youths who want the best for their country.

The Professionals Forum in North America supports the #FixTheCountry Movement. It is time to do things right as a country and about time the government begins to FixTheCountry we all call home.

Sadly, another Ghanaian youth with the Ghana Police Service has been shot and killed through careless arrangements for his safety. It is high time we as a nation begin to protect the lives and properties of Ghanaians through proper ways of doing things.

Why should we move money through traffic in broad daylight and expose everyone involved in today’s sophisticated era of crime? Can we investigate the proliferation of arms in the hands of wrong people? What happened to building landing sites for helicopters or better still moving monies at night with drones monitoring in the air with live feed? Can we begin to think outside the box and prioritize the safety of our people?

Our dear nation is overwhelmed with hardship and insecurity, and it is the duty of all to call out those who have carelessly created the mess to #FixTheCountry.

A middle-aged man has been shot dead by his friend at Akuapem-Apiredi in the Eastern Region following a confrontation over a Ghc5 debt he owes him.

The deceased whose name was given as Ben, a drinking spot operator, was shot twice on his chest by Kwame Dankwa, a 50-year-old hunter who had confronted him to pay his debt.

Ben was reported to have refused to pay his creditor, a situation which angered Kwame who pulled a locally manufactured gun and shot him.

A resident of the town, Kwabena Ofori told JoyNews, the deceased was pronounced dead on arrival at the Tetteh Quarshie memorial hospital in Akuapem-Mampong.

“Kwame Dankwa went to Ben who operates a drinking spot to collect his Gh₵5 he claimed the man owed him but when he approached him he also failed to pay the money so it turned into a fight and Kwame Dankwa shot him twice. When he was sent to Mampong he was reported dead,” he explained.

Meanwhile, the suspect has fled to an unknown location when residents attempted to apprehend him.
