It is unclear what the motive of his suspension might be but reports circulating online has it that the media personality has allegedly been suspended because of his critical commentaries on national issues which some politicians claim has been making government unpopular.
In a Facebook post by IMANI boss, Franklin Cudjoe which was cited by thepunchghana.com, there are some high ranking politicians in government who have been mounting pressure on Captain Smart’s employer hence his decision to let him go off air.
“”Had a worrying conversation moments ago. Captain Smart’s boss has allegedly 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 government’. Captain Smart’s crime, allegedly, is that his usual critical commentary on national affairs, is making government unpopular. Really? I hope it is not some over zealous politicians who made those calls. Either way, it paints a gravely intolerant picture. #Fixitnow!””, said Mr Franklin Cudjoe.
