Social media like I always say is not a peaceful zone particularly Twitter as netizens have pounced on the host of Good Evening Ghana, Paul Adom Otchere for attacking critics of the Minister of Fisheries designate, Hawa Koomson over her ‘bad’ English.
Paul Adom Otchere in a trending video jumped to the defence of Hon. Hawa Koomson after netizens mocked her over lack of control over the English language while answering questions when she faced the appointment committee of parliament on Thursday.
Paul Adom Otchere descended on netizens who mocked the controversial MP as he claimed that what she can bring on board towards the development of the country matters and not her eloquence.
““Stop being on facebook and typing ‘I know right’ so you think because you can type ‘I know right’.. and because of that, you are okay? Your okayness is showing in your inability to contribute to the development of Ghana because every job interview you go you fail Having being to the University of Ghana.
Having gone to waste four years gossiping on the University campus and you didn’t learn anything and you come and sit down there and you are laughing at Hawa Koomson. Are you serious? Is that the country we want to build? Please let’s stop that.
As young people let’s not try to be funny. Let’s stop this kind of behaviour. Get serious with our life that is why someone is suggesting that if she can’t speak English allow her to speak in her local language…” Paul Adom Otchere disclosed.
Social media users have hit back at the ace broadcaster as the majority hurled insults at Paul Adom Otchere for jumping to the defence of Hawa Koomson.
