The Ghanaian politics is known to be highly antagonistic with the "winner takes it all" approach of governance. When a party wins power, it lays off all government appointees of the former government and appoints its own party members to the now vacant positions. This has been the political trend since the 4th republic (1992).
The Ghanaian media, just as the youth and the people of Ghana, is known to be highly politically polarized as confirmed by the EU observers following the 2020 elections in Ghana.
To make things worse, veteran journalists who are supposed to be politically neutral are now boldly showing their political colors by accepting political appointments by the president Nana Addo.
Ghanaians are worried about the future of the country, the youth and our politics.
Captain Smart who claims that the NPP government was the cause of his suspension from his former workplace, Angel fm and who is now working with Onua TV and Onua fm, recently affirmed in a Facebook live monitored by The Twin's TV that he was appointed as the Ambassador of the Ghana Fire Service in a heated response to host of the Seat talk show on Net 2 TV.
