Trouble is looming for Captain Smart as the government has threatened to sue him.
The Deputy Information minister, Fatimatu Abubakar, hinted at the government’s decision to sue Captain Smart and Media General over his claims that President Akufo-Addo is involved in illegal mining activities.
“This publication impugns the character and integrity of the President, and the credibility and commitment of his fight against illegal and irresponsible mining.
“The content propagated in the video is false, malicious and without basis. It is nothing but an act of unethical and irresponsible journalism; The video is intended to court disaffection for government and undermine efforts to fight illegal mining in the country,” part of the statement read.
”We will continue to hold Media General in high esteem and urge them not to compromise their standards for validating information, ethical practice, and avoiding conjecture in presentation of facts,” it added.
