It appears Paul Adom-Otchere's program dubbed 'Good Evening Ghana' is totally different from from all Ghanaian TV programs. Whiles host of other programs discuss issues dispassionately, Paul Adom -Otchere's program is looking at one side of issues.

Why will Paul Adom-Otchere decline discussing the lawless nature of the EC and will rather find interest in discussing issues that have nothing to do with the lawlessness? Could it be that Paul Adom-Otchere has an interest in who becomes the running mate of John Dramani Mahama? Or Paul Adom-Otchere is thinking about his appointment as a board member of national communications Authority?

There is no serious journalist who when given the opportunity will not discuss about the current happenings in this country, but Paul Adom-Otchere finds nothing wrong with the fact that the Electoral Commission has defied an injunction against their meeting, by holding the said meeting.

Could it be the following reasons why PAUL ADOM-OTCHERE is doing what he is doing today?

1) Has Paul Adom-Otchere ever denied an opportunity to serve under any of the NDC administration?

2) Is Paul Adom-Otchere not seeing anything wrong with the current position of the ruling party and the decision of Electoral Commission?

3) Has Paul Adom-Otchere ever discussed the many calls for a new voter register amidst the pandemic?

4) Why didn't Paul Adom-Otchere use his program to analyze the disappointing nature of his boss( President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo)?

5) why didn't Paul Adom-Otchere talk about the mere fact that the NPP has not yet confirmed the president as it's candidate for the 2020 elections.

PAUL ADOM-OTCHERE is good at advising the NDC on who will be a good running mate material and who the great funder of the NDC will accept or otherwise but has not seen the undemocratic nature of his own party the NPP where their NEC will hand-pick parliamentary candidates to contest?

My brother Paul Adom-Otchere, "Eat your house matter" , because your analysis are borne out of political skin pain. Advise your party to practice democracy and not autocracy. You should rather be interested in analyzing your party's chances and not NDC running mate.

Speak about your boss inability to build a single health center after assuming power. Talk about the many abandoned projects and the possible way forward and not who becomes a running mate to the NDC.

Talk about the fact that we have a president who is still promising here and there when he is actually the sitting president.

We all know that whoever becomes John Dramani Mahama's running mate is a win affair for the NDC.

Mr Paul Adom-Otchere be a patriotic journalist and not a political witch hunting journalist.

I remain a citizen and not a spectator
