Social media users have descended on the host of Good Evening Ghana on Metro TV Paul Adom-Otchere over his recent attacks on investigative journalist Manasseh Azuri Awuni.
Mr. Paul Adom-Otchere has consistently used his platform to attack his colleague journalist with the latest being last week when he descended on him heavily for criticizing press freedom under the current dispensation and the establishment of Twitter Africa Headquarters in Ghana.
Speaking on Good Evening Ghana on Metro TV Tuesday, April 13, 2021, Mr Adom-Otchere, who hosts the show, launched a scathing criticism of Manasseh Azure Awuni even though he failed to call him by name.
“This your bitterness against Akufo-Addo is not going to take you anywhere. And it’s not your decision [ that has made him President]. The Ghanaian people decided that the man has been reelected for a second term. You fought. You did all that you could [to ensure he doesn’t win the Presidency again]; you called him names because you said he did not achieve something.”
But social media users believe the attacks on Manasseh Azuri Awuni is linked to last year’s April response to me Adom- Otchere’s peddling of untruths about him.
In the discussions about how Mr Adom-Otchere may have acted inappropriately in the past, including how he lied about Lawyer Nii Arday-Clegg and later apologized, Manasseh also shared a story about how Mr Adom-Otchere had lied about him to the effect that he ( Manasseh) had demanded money to kill a story, an exposé, on Zoomlion Company Limited.
