Mr. Adom-Otchere, the host of Good Evening Ghana on Metro TV since 2001, expressed dissatisfaction with the comments, claiming that they tarnished his image and lowered his reputation in the eyes of well-meaning people in society.
The broadcaster claimed in his High Court writ that the disparaging remarks had made him appear contemptible in the eyes of his peers and other right-thinking people.

The Chairman of the Ghana Airport Company Board, among other things, wants the court to rule that Captain Smart’s remarks are defamatory and to award “damages in the sum of 10 million Ghana cedis for the defamatory statements made by 1st Defendant on Onua TV and Onua FM.”

He also wants “compensatory damages for the harm done to his reputation, as well as aggravated damages for the reckless and malicious publication of the defamatory words.”
He also wants the court to order the defendants to retract and apologize for the comments “on all media platforms operated by the second defendant,” as well as a “injunction restraining the defendants from further publishing and causing to be published the said similar words defamatory of the plaintiff.”
