We were all excited when news broke that Ghanaian journalist Bridget Otoo was set for a big comeback to our screens after taking about six years of rest from media following her issues at TV3.
Sources revealed that Bridget was joining Metro TV as host of the station’s primetime news show dubbed ‘News Night’.
Our excitement was however dwarfed barely 24 hours after the above report went viral.
New reports emerged that the owners of Metro TV were allegedly forced by the NPP Government in power to rescind their decision and sack Bridget Otoo.
Some supporters of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC) took to social media to fan the allegations by providing what they term as evidence to back their claims.
A member of NDC’s Communications team, Annan Perry Arhin, speculated that President Akufo-Addo directed Metro TV to sack Bridget Otoo – what interest does the president of Ghana have in common Bridget Otoo?
”Are you wondering why Bridget Otoo didn’t show up on #NewsNight at 7 pm, Akufo Addo/Bawumia/Npp government have instructed the owners of metro tv to sack her with immediate effect because she bashes them and is a supporter of John Mahama”, he wrote.
Bridget Otoo has dropped a reaction to all the allegations hovering on social media about her ousting from Metro TV.
Bridget shared a snippet of the famous Indian movie ‘Three Idiots’ which had the lead characters singing the song, ‘all is well’. She caption the video: ”One of the best movies ever made ….”
Social media users are claiming Bridget is trying to say she is not bothered by what rumour goes around about her and that “all is well” in her life.
