Ghanaians react over alleged Akufo-Addo’s involvement in Bridget Otoo’s Metro TV sack

Ghanaians have reacted following report that renowned broadcast journalist, Ms Bridget Otoo have been sacked from Metro TV barely 24hours she announced publicly her employment by the station.

The former TV3 broadcaster announced on Monday August 2, her employment with Metro TV in a short video and was subsequently hosted on the station’s flagship current affairs programme, Good Morning Ghana to that effect.

Announcing her new job she wrote “We go again; I got a call from someone I revere months ago and I didn’t think much of it. Then another, a few weeks later, put the sheer volume of the task ahead in perspective. I had to take five to wrap my head around it but shortly after, the third time was the charm”.

The bubbly and outspoken broadcaster was hired to host the station’s prime time news from 7PM to 8PM on weekdays.

She however, failed to make appearance as announced prompting social media discussions on the development.

Speaking to the development an NDC sympathizer who goes by the name Annan Perry Arhin said the broadcaster’s new job was taken away from her even before she could make her first official appearance due to her political affiliation with the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC).

He wrote in  a tweet “Are you wondering why Bridget Otoo didn’t show up on #NewsNight at 7pm, Akufo Addo/Bawumia/Npp government have instructed the owners of metro tv to sack her with immediate effect because she bashes them and a supporter of John Mahama”.
