On Saturday, Paul Adom Otchere clashed with Sulemana Braimah of the Media Foundation for West Africa on TV3’s The Keypoints. The 2 disagreed over the report of the Press Rankings Index that placed Ghana at 60th. According to Sulemana there was even more press freedom in military held Burkina Faso than Ghana. Paul Adom disagreed and on Good Evening Ghana chose to explain his point more clearly.
According to Paul, those who compiled the report didn’t do a genuine work because there is no way anyone can say that Burkina Faso has more press freedom than Ghana. Paul queried how many media house can challenge the ruling junta in Burkina Faso, something that Ghanaian press men are doing freely in Ghana under President Akufo-Addo. According to Paul, in compiling their work, Reporters Without Borders added too much emotions just to make sure they denigrated the Akufo-Addo government.
Paul called on Reporters Without Borders to come again with their report because this report looks like they were coerced applying their emotions to rank Ghana very low. “Don’t add emotions. Don’t be an octopus. That is what Reporters Without Borders did. That is why they brought ridiculous outcome. They did an excellent work but they got emotional at some point” Paul explained
