“I wont be part of the demonstration again” – Captain Smart
“Why will I support the use of weapons to demonstrate when I want the country to be fixed? If they use violence and destroy the country, what will be left to be fixed?”
Renowned Ghanaian media broadcaster Blessed Godsbrain Smart, popularly known as Captain Smart, has cleared the air that although he is a convener for #FixTheCountry, he never signed the infamous letter which was responded to by the police.
A letter believed to be from the conveners and addressed to the Accra Regional Command of the Ghana Police Service has been spotted on social media with its content stirring mixed reaction.
Excerpts from the letter spoke about a demonstration planned to take place on Saturday, June 4 to register their displeasure to the authorities in the country.
The letter asked for permission and security from the Ghana police and stated intentions to demonstrate with weapons if the security force refuses to grant them permission.
Speaking on the 3FM Drive with Giovani on Wednesday, June 1, Captain Smart said he knows nothing about the letter and his lawyers are currently writing to address the trending issue.
He cleared that he does not support violence and will never approve a rebellious demonstration.
“Why will I support the use of weapons to demonstrate when I want the country to be fixed? If they use violence and destroy the country, what will be left to be fixed?” Captain Smart questioned.
The media personality disassociated himself from the content of the letter and added that he will not be partaking in the demonstration scheduled to take place on the principal streets of Accra.
