The work of a journalist is quite a heavy burden as it becomes very cumbersome to keep the neutrality tag in dealing professionally throughout your daily routines.
In Ghana, most people do not believe in neutrality because of the huge influences of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) and the main opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC). The two main parties sure have over 90% of sympathizers altogether.
As a Ghanaian Journalist, you ought to be on top of issues before having a conversation with experienced and intelligent politicians else you’ll end up being pushed to a tight corner and being faced with future incessant trolls.
Social media users are currently on the neck of Serwaa Amihere following her recent interview with the Minister for Information and the Member of Parliament for Ofoase-Ayirebi Constituency, Hon. Kojo Oppong Nkrumah over the Ayawaso West Wuogon ‘Commission of Inquiry’ into the violence at by election last year.
According to some critics, it’s obvious that Serwaa Amihere has never read anything about what she asked Kojo Oppong Nkrumah and he certainly rode on that blunder to push her towards the edge.
Flowing from the above, it is imperative for Nana Aba Anamoah, the Acting General Manager at GhOne TV and Serwaa’s bestie to groom Serwaa Amihere on how to spend more time on reading and researching than the regular makeups, videos and photoshoots for likes and comments on Instagram, Snapchat, Facebook and co.
Netizen Lucas has, however, envisaged how hate travels and swims in our blood as Ghanaians because of how everybody is coming for the head of Serwaa Amihere for looking dumb in front of the Information Minister. Of course, Kojo Oppong is a seasoned politician who uses cleverness to answer questions and Serwaa’s question to him was a brilliant question but as a tricky politician, he used wisdom to escape from the glaring danger.
It is unfortunate how Nana Aba Anamoah is teasing people for trolling Serwaa Amihere because Ghanaians may as well add her to the trolls. The best for her, at the moment, is to sweep the goof under the carpet and encourage Serwaa Amihere to stay awake all night prior to the day of interviewing any smart politician like Kojo Oppong Nkrumah, Sammy Gyamfi, Ofosu Kwakye, Afenyo Markin and the rest.
Better luck to Serwaa Amihere in the future.
