Captain Smart suspended from radio broadcasting.
The firebrand radio broadcaster has allegedly been asked by his boss to take a break from radio.
According to Franklin Cudjoe, President of IMANI Ghana, he had a conversation with Captain Smart this morning and the radio broadcaster told him that his boss had asked him to take a break from the microphone.
He further disclosed that pressure had been mounting on his boss at the radio station from a high ranking government official to call Captain Smart to order over his excessive criticism of government.
Franklin Cudjoe then took to his facebook page and posted the following:
“Had a worrying conversation moments ago. Captain Smart’s boss has allegedly asked him to go off air for a while as a result of undue pressure that has been piled on him by ‘high ranking officials in government’.
Captain Smart’s crime, allegedly, is that his usual critical commentary on national affairs, is making government unpopular. Really?
I hope it is not some over zealous politicians who made those calls. Either way, it paints a gravely intolerant picture. #Fixitnow!”.
