A day after hiring the former TV3 presenter, it has been alleged that the government has guided owners of Metro TV to sack Bridget Otoo since she is a member of the opposition party NDC.
Bridget Otoo was revealed yesterday as another member of Metro TV and was to have the station host the station’s flagship news bulletin program “News Night” between 7 pm and 8 pm.
In any case, Bridget Otoo neglected to show up on the set to have the news today. This has given many people reasons to believe or feel that Bridget Otoo is on the way of been axed from the station just a day after joining.
This allegation is being fueled by some members of the NDC on social media. One Annan Perry Arhin, a member of NDC’s Communications team has posted that President Akufo-Addo, acting as government, has directed Metro TV to sack Bridget Otoo.
According to him, the government wants her out of Metro TV because she supports John Mahama and bashes the Akufo-Addo-led administration, allegedly.
He wrote: Are you wondering why Bridget Otoo didn’t show up on #NewsNight at 7 pm, Akufo Addo/Bawumia/Npp government have instructed the owners of metro tv to sack her with immediate effect because she bashes them and is a supporter of John Mahama.
