Akufo Addo To Sue Captain Smart and Media General For Defamation

The ruling NPP government has threatened to refer the morning show host of Onua FM/TV’s Maakye, Godsbrain Smart, and its Media company, Media General to the National Media Commission (NMC).

This comes after the vocal broadcaster popularly known as Captain Smart had claimed President Akufo-Addo is involved in illegal mining.

The government in a statement said the claims made by Mr. Smart, popularly known as Captain Smart, in a published video, will be referred to the National Media Commission.

The statement signed by the Deputy Minister of Information, Fatimatu Abubakar, described the publication as “unethical” meant to impugn “the character and integrity of the President, and the credibility and commitment of his fight against illegal and irresponsible mining.”

Responding to the claims, the statement stated categorically that the President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo “has never been and is not involved in galamsey.”

“It is, however, imperative to note that the aforementioned action is without prejudice to government’s right to seek legal action against Mr. Smart, Onua TV and Media General,” the statement noted.

The government thus labelled the journalistic work of Mr. Smart of “unethical and irresponsible” journalism, adding that “the video is intended to court disaffection for government and undermine efforts to fight illegal mining in the country.”

The government said it was concerned about the spread of disinformation and misinformation, “clothed under the pretext of journalistic discretion and free expression.”

It furthered by calling on the public to disregard the claims because the content of the Captain Smart is false which amount to malicious and without basis.

Despite the government been under immense criticisms in its fight against the illegal mining, the government believes its commitment remains “unwavering.”
