I Only Criticizes His Statements and Never Attack His Personality-Paul Adom Otchere Clears the Air

The Host of Good Evening Ghana (on Metro TV) who is also the Former Board Member of National Communications Authority (NCA), Mr. Paul Adom Otchere said that, he is never attacking the personality of the Investigative Journalist, Manasseh Azure.

According to him, he is rather criticizing the statements and words that he puts up in public. He said Manasseh’s words carry weight and has high believability rate. So there is the need for him to make sure he put out credible and accurate information to the public. He said an ordinary Ghanaian can speculate and be forgiven but not a Journalist who supposed to know better.

In his view, attacking someone personally is to start describing the person, calling the person names, criticizing the life style of the person, which he never do on his platform. He said, he rather makes sure he do accurate research and analyze issues objectively.

Speaking with Umaru Sanda Amadu on Point Blank Segment (Citi FM 77.3), he said everyone has his own style of practicing his Journalism, and that is how he chose his. People may disagree with him but that is their opinion. In his words, he always tries to give people the platform to speak their side of the story to bring out the truth to the public, but not creating an avenue for people to defend themselves. He deals with documents and makes sure the Guests on the show prepare themselves well on the matter to be discussed.

The banter between Manasseh Azure and Paul Adom Otchere is based on several number of issues and instances. The recent one is on the resignation rumor of Bridget, which Manasseh claimed there are powerful hands behind based on his sources at the Media Organization.

Paul on his show read the statements of Manasseh and pouched holes into it and said they are false. He went on further to clarify the rumor and set the record straight. He described the act of Azure as poor Journalism which must not be done by a person of his caliber.

Many Ghanaians think he has some hatred toward the Investigative Journalist, and has not been fair to him. He continue to affirm that, there is nothing as such, but he is rather bent on making the truth clear to the public. Others has for a long time supported his stands and also think he is doing the job well. Share your thoughts, and don't forget to follow me.
