Government Threatens To Sue Captain Smart And Media General



Captain Smart is in trouble as the government has threatened to sue him.

In a statement issued by the Deputy Information minister, Fatimatu Abubakar, the government threatened to file a lawsuit against Captain Smart and Media General.

The legal threat was on the back of the journalist’s claim that President Akufo-Addo is part of those doing illegal mining in the country.


“This publication impugns the character and integrity of the President, and the credibility and commitment of his fight against illegal and irresponsible mining.

“The content propagated in the video is false, malicious and without basis. It is nothing but an act of unethical and irresponsible journalism; The video is intended to court disaffection for government and undermine efforts to fight illegal mining in the country,” part of the Statement read.

”We will continue to hold Media General in high esteem and urge them not to compromise their standards for validating information, ethical practice, and avoiding conjecture in presentation of facts,” it added.


Below is the full statement.
