Onua TV refutes reports claiming the resignation of Captain Smart, host of the morning show Onua Maakye. The station dismisses these rumors as false. They also asserted that Captain Smart’s statements were misunderstood and not an actual resignation.
On Facebook, the TV station discredits the reports, labeling them inaccurate. The station clarified that the comments from Captain Smart were not an official resignation.
The National Media Commission (NMC) condemns Onua TV’s broadcast, considering it perilous and unprofessional. In a statement signed by George Sarpong, the NMC Executive Secretary, the regulator stresses the urgency for the station to enhance its broadcast quality and regulatory compliance.
The NMC specifically calls for an apology from Onua Radio/TV to the Chief of Defense Staff (CDS) and his commanders for the offensive language used. Additionally, they demand an apology to the Ghanaian public for the inappropriate language employed.
The NMC sets a deadline of November 19, 2023, for Onua Radio/TV to implement the recommended measures and furnish evidence of compliance. Failure to do so will result in consequences.
This situation underscores the importance of responsible broadcasting, with regulatory bodies ensuring adherence to professional standards in the media landscape.
