President John Mahama deserves praise from Ghanaians because he has done a “great job” for his country, Ovation International publisher Chief Dele Momodu has said.
“People read politics into everything but frankly speaking, there is so much to celebrate about President Mahama,” the Nigerian businessman whose magazine recently published a long interview with Mr Mahama in which the Ghanaian president lamented about a media cabla “blocking” and “distorting” his message of transformation.
“He has done a great job. I have traveled extensively across the Africa and Ghana is working, Ghana is rising and it is our duty to celebrate Ghana,” Momodu said in an interview with Accra-based Citi FM.
“I think President Mahama has done well and as a lifestyle magazine, ours is to cover the beauty of Ghana. It is a news magazine that you can accuse of being biased,” he said in defence of his magazine’s interview with Mr Mahama.
The magazine quoted Mr Mahama as saying his good message is not getting to the Ghanaians people because “a certain group has taken control of the media in Ghana and it makes it difficult for people to discern the truth. So as much as you are putting out the information, it is either being blocked or distorted.”
