Captain Smart has confessed he and two other top journalists in the country sabotaged John Dramani Mahama in the build-up to the 2016 elections.
He said they spewed lies and propaganda meant to project Nana Akufo Addo and make him with the election which eventually worked to perfection.
He named Kwami Sefa Kayi and Paul Adom Otchere, who he described as NPP lawyers as the main architect of the propaganda machinery.
He added it was only after the election that he realised that most of the things he said about Mahama before the 2016 election were false.
“I was one of the people who was serious (spreading lies against Mahama) … the lies we told against Mahama in this country were not small lies, Paul Adom Otchere was part. We said Mahama had a house in Dubai… that he had gold (concessions); you (Adom Otchere) were part of those of us who were spreading lies about Mahama with your frivolous analysis.
“Myself, you (Adom Otchere), Sefa (Kwami Sefa Kayi) and all the NPP lawyers must fast for 21 days and beg for God’s forgiveness… When we came to power, I decided to investigate these claims against Mahama and realised that all the information you (NPP journalist) were feeding us were lies; you took money to spread,” he said in Twi during his Maakye Show on Onua TV.
Captain Smart further stated that many NPP (New Patriotic Party) members expected that Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo would perform as well as ex-President John Agyekum Kufuor, but they have all been disappointed.
“… if you compare Nana Addo’s performance to John Dramani Mahama, he (Akufo-Addo) will not even get 1 out of 100,” he said.
