The host of Metro TVs Good Evening Ghana, Paul Adom Otchere, has chastised Sydney Casely-Hayford for insinuating that he took soli from the President before the latter appeared on his show last Thursday.

How much soli did I take when I interviewed President Mahama? I think that this is a very poor commentan intelligent and respectable man like Sydney Casely-Hayford will cast such insinuations, such aspersions, baseless, of no basis. He has no reason to cast these assertions yet, he does, he fumed.

Financial Analyst, Sydney Casely-Hayford on Citi FM said: He [Mahama] was on the Paul Adom Otchere show and I dont know how much soli exchanged hands before the show happened.

The President of IMANI Ghana, Franklin Cudjoe on his part also remarked that the interview with the President was hurriedly done, therefore, there is the possibility that money changed hands.

He said: It happened at such speed that it was out of normal.

But an angry Adom Otchere called into the show describing the comments as the lowest that we could assign to all theseand I call it the resurgence of free speech because I was there when free speech started.

Here is Sydney Casely-Hayford after 14,000 interviews and 14 years of broadcasting the programme; we have an interview with the President and he says how much soli did you take for interviewing President Mahama? he rhetorically asked.

He continued saying, this is disgraceful, that is just disgracefuland my good friend Franklin Cudjoe said the interview had been hurriedly arrangedyou dont work with me, you dont know what I do every day, you dont know how many letters I have written.

Mr. Adom Otchere disclosed that he, together with the management of Metro TV had been hounding the President over the past eight months to grant the interview.

According to him, his outfit was disappointed that in all the democracy weve had, no sitting Ghanaian President had granted an interview to a local radio or TV station and we thought that we should do that and get that done.

So we campaigned to President Mahama that you are a President friendly to the media so in your time, let us get this done and weve been working on this for a long time now, he added.

Mr. Adom Otchere further pointed out that it is disappointing for people like Sydney to derogate another persons efforts just so that they become relevant
