He said the the radio station is currently running a campaign against the introduction and implementation of the Free Senior High School policy to ensure that hundreds of thousands of young Ghanaian men and women, who, previously, would have had their education truncated at the Junior High School level, and have the opportunity to further their education.

"During the last elections, I got a clear impression [that] free SHS has been endorsed by all political parties and all we needed to do was to keep improving it.

"Was a spirited defense of the free SHS policy constitutes an attack on press freedom? I wonder. It cannot be that everyone has a right to reply except members of the government and officialdom.

"Nor can it be that the challenges and opinion expressed by a journalist constitutes an attack on press freedom," he said on Saturday, May 29, 2021, when the University of Cape Coast conferred an Honorary Doctor of Philosophy in Educational Leadership degree on him, at a ceremony at the campus of the University.
