NMC Directs Captain Smart To Apologise To Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu
The National Media Commission has ordered Onua FM and its host, Godsbrain Smart aka Captain Smart, to withdraw a November 24, 2021, publication that was critical of the Ministry of Parliamentary Affairs and the Minister, Osei Kyei-Mensah-Bonsu.
According to a statement released by the NMC yesterday, the program claimed, among other things, that the Ministry was given a budgeted allocation of GH16 million to spend even though it did not exist.
The station was unable to substantiate the charges at the Complaints Settlement Committee, according to the NMC.
According to the statement, the commission found Onua FM’s behavior to be unethical and unprofessional.
As a result, the NMC ordered the station to issue an apology and retract the story.
Onua FM was also ordered to erase the false charges from all of its social media sites.
