Executive Director of Media Foundation for West Africa, Sulemana Braimah has hit hard at the Akuffo Addo government accusing it of intolerance.

His comments, came when President Akufo-Addo accused Joy FM of waging a campaign against his government’s flagship programme, the Free Senior High Schools (SHS) policy.

On his tweeter wall, Mr. Braimah wrote
“It’s intolerance of the highest order is whn a radio programme that allows people to express their views about a gov’t policy is interpreted as a campaign by the station against the gov’t policy. Are radio stations only supposed to parade only govt praise-singers on programs?”


The President at a ceremony at the University of Cape Coast (UCC) on Saturday May 29, where an Honorary Doctorate degree was conferred on him, said that he was under the impression that Free SHS was approved by everyone including the political parties, until he learnt about discussions on the radio station.

The president said “A radio station is currently running a campaign against Free SHS. During the last election, I got the impression that Free SHS was endorsed by all parties and all that was needed to do was keep improving it. Would a spirited defence of Free SHS constitute an attack on press freedom? I wonder”

His comment came after Joy FM’s Super Morning Show, in the course of the week, offered headteachers, teachers, parents, students and the Deputy Director-General of the Ghana Education Service, an opportunity to discuss challenges being faced in the implementation of the government’s flagship programme, free SHS.
