Franklin Cudjoe writes:I had a worrying conversation with Captain Smart of Angel Broadcasting Network (ABN), operators of Angel TV/Radio moments ago. According to Captain Smart his boss has 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 Akufo Addo led NPP government’. Captain Smart’s crime is that his usual critical commentary on national affairs is making government unpopular. Really? I hope these are not some over zealous politicians who made those calls. Either way, it paints a gravely intolerant picture of Akufo Addo government. The culture of silence is gradually taking root. #fixitnow#fixthecountry
