The host of Onua FM and Onua TV’s Morning show, Blessed Godsbrain Smart, also known as Captain Smart has descended on his colleague journalist and host of Metro TV’s Good Evening Ghana show, Paul Adom Otchere calling him a ‘fool’.
Smart says his colleague’s assertion that there is nothing wrong with the Finance Minister’s bank as the advisory institution taking 9.6% of all loans taken by the NPP government is an exhibition of intellectual masturbation.
Paul Adom-Otchere had passed comments on his show that there is nothing wrong with the transactional advisory role of DataBank, a financial institution where Ken Ofori-Atta, the Finance Minister, is a shareholder.
After appearing in Parliament Wednesday, June 22, 2022, Member of Parliament for Okai Kwei North, Theresah Lardy Awuni asked the Finance Minister, Ken Ofori-Atta, the total amount Ghana has taken as loans, and how much the advisors to the government on these loans have made.
After the parliamentary encounter, Ace broadcaster and media brands expert, Kwasi Kyei Darkwa, known in the media space as KKD reignited the issue whilst appearing on GTV’s breakfast show.
But Captain Smart believes only a fool can take the position Mr. Adom-Otchere has taken in defending the Finance Minister.
“Nana Addo cannot sack Ken because they are both corrupt. Paul Adom-Otchere is my senior but he is a fool.
“The Asante Bediatuo and Gabby who have been giving you money say you’re an idiot. You’re fooling a lot. Stop it.
“Why do you want to redefine conflict of interest? If you are not careful, politics will make you a useless being at the disadvantage of the ordinary,” he noted.
