Minister for Information and former journalist, Kojo Oppong-Nkrumah, has clarified that he never set out to confuse and embarrass GHOneTv’s presenter, Serwaa Amihere during their interview session.
According to the honorable Minister, in an interview, he only sought clarification about the question posed to him by Serwaa Amihere and not to take advantage of her alleged ignorance to embarrass her as widely disseminated.
“I didn’t intend to be a difficult guest for Serwaa Amihere, I just needed clarification on the question posed to me by her, but I think it did not come out well,” he said.
Mr. Oppong-Nkrumah advised journalists not to think that by virtue of their positions their questions cannot be questioned.
“I think a lot of journalists don’t think their questions can be questioned but its legitimate for your questions to be questioned, and there is nothing wrong with it because it’s a conversation,” he added.
The honorable Minister moreover stated that he spoke with the presenter after the interview to encourage her, expressing confidence that Serwaa Amihere will be more successful in the future should she continue with the commitment she uses in her profession.
“This is something time and history will not remember, and she will do very well as the years go by,” he hinted.
