Broadcast Journalist and host of Good Evening Ghana on Metro TV, Paul Adom Otchere has hit hard at Multimedia’s investigative journalist, Manasseh Azure Awuni after the latter questioned him regarding his closeness to the Ghana Journalist Association (GJA).

Manasseh Azure had asked the host of Good Evening Ghana in a Facebook post why he would share press statements of GJA to media houses, suggesting that he was aware of how close Mr. Adom Otchere is to Jospong Group of Companies and not the GJA.

“Why is Paul Adom Otchere sending the GJA press statement to media houses? I know his closeness with Jospong, but not the GJA!” the post read.

 

The post seemed to have suggested that Adom Otchere was doing the bidding of his paymasters, Jospong Group under the pretext of disseminating the GJA statement which cautioned the media to exercise restraint when doing investigative pieces.

GJA’s press statement on trial by the media came on the back of reports by Manasseh Azure that Jospong Group, owners of, Zoomlion and other subsidiaries, had inflated the cost of a contract it had with the Mahama government to supply waste bins.

The company has since denied the claims.

In his response to the issue on his show on Tuesday, Adom Otchere expressed his dissatisfaction with the comments by Azure and further charged him to adopt ethical principles in his work.

“I’m a member of the GJA and you are asking that you don’t know my closeness with the GJA? What’s the meaning of that? What kind of desperation is that? This is contradiction in terms. This is what happens when people are motivated in the wrong way to deal with matters that they should be dealing in the public interest with a very level head… Please revise your notes. I am a member of GJA and I canvass for the position of what had been articulated in the GJA statement.

“When you write things like that, you expose your cerebral weaknesses and limitations. Don’t write things like that.

“Me and GJA do you know how far we go, please GJA gave me an award 16 years ago…. and you’re asking that what is my closeness with the GJA, are you alright?" he fumed with rage.

“When you are directing ‘misenergy’ you see what it can do to you. You expose your cerebral weaknesses and limitations. You put up a statement that is laughable, Opana, that’s what you do…” Mr. Adom Otchere said.
