Captain Smart the host of Angel In The Morning on Angel Fm and Angel TV has finally broken silence on his suspension from Angel FM as the morning show host. In an interview with Paul Adom Otchere on the Good Evening Ghana show on Thursday, May 6, 2021, Captain Smart explained what led to his suspension.
He revealed that the owner of the station, Dr Kwaku Oteng, said in a conversation that he had been told that he (Captain) had insulted President Nana Akufo-Addo, his vice, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia, and Alan Kyerematen.He told Dr Kwaku Oteng that the information was false and even declared his intention to apologise on-air if evidence was brought that he (Captain) called those people fools as being alleged.
Notwithstanding his explanation to his boss, Captain Smart said he was asked to step aside after the day’s show.
According to him, Oteng intimated that there was pressure on him from the Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA) and other government agencies because of the supposed insults. “He (Oteng) thus told me to stay away until such a time the pressure will cool off,” Captain Smart said.
Earlier, Captain Smart had indicated that he was not afraid to lose his job and would have gladly left if he had been told to resign.
“If he had called to tell me, Captain, I cannot work with you again. I would have had no problem because I will not go hungry. My brain works,” he said.
