The General Manager for Angel FM has explained why Captain Smart has been suspended.
Confirming the suspension of Captain Smart, Kwadwo Dickson said he has “spoken against government officials such as President Akufo-Addo, Vice-President Dr. Bawumia, Allan Kyeremateng and the IGP.”
In an early post on Facebook from investigative journalist Manasseh Azure Awuni, he said his checks revealed the following:
“1. That Captain Smart has been taken off air. It’s unknown how long he will be away.
2. Management has not officially communicated this to the staff of the company.
3. There have been complaints and pressure from some top government officials who are aggrieved by Captain Smart’s utterances on his show.
4. Management of the station are concerned about how he sometimes attacks personalities, instead of staying on the issues he discusses. They yanked him off air after several warnings and the complaints/pressure from some aggrieved top officials.”
