Bridget Otoo has surfaced in a Live video on Facebook as she interacts with fans in the aftermath of her Metro TV debacle.
Bridget Otoo was unveiled on August 2 as a new member of Metro TV and was to host the station’s flagship news bulletin program “News Night” between 7 pm and 8 pm.
However, for some strange reasons, she failed to appear on the set to host the news the following day, August 3. This gave many people reasons to believe or feel that Bridget Otoo was on the way to being axed from the station just barely a few hours after she joined them.
The allegation was 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 allegedly instructed the owners of Metro TV to sack her with immediate effect because she bashes them and is a supporter of John Mahama.
Another post from other NDC members corroborating the allegation is seen below:
In an interactive session on Facebook Live, Bridget failed to officially address the issue but instead said she was keeping all the details for a new book she has authored which she said will be out soon.
She revealed some important figures have spoken to her to keep not to talk about the issue presently which she’s adhering to.
