Ghanaian journalist, Blessed Godsbrain Smart, better known as Captain Smart, has made a stunning revelation on how he and some NPP media men sabotaged former president Mahama’s 2016 election.
On his usual show on Onua TV, Captain Smart said that he met with the New Patriotic Party (NPP) alongside certain journalists, including Kwami Sefa Kayi and Paul Adom Otchere, to invent various falsehoods about Mahama.
In his own words he said:
“I was one of the people who were serious (spreading lies against Mahama) … the lies we told against Mahama in this country were not small lies, Paul Adom Otchere was part. We said Mahama had a house in Dubai… that he had gold (concessions); you (Adom Otchere) were part of those of us who were spreading lies about Mahama with your frivolous analysis.”
“Myself, you (Adom Otchere), Sefa (Kwami Sefa Kayi), and all the NPP lawyers must fast for 21 days and beg for God’s forgiveness… When we came to power, I decided to investigate these claims against Mahama and realized that all the information you (NPP journalist) were feeding us were lies; you took money to spread,” he added.
