Despite the backlash, Bentil did not clarify the specific reasons he found the comparison between him and journalist Paul Adom-Otchere insulting.

Paul Adom-Otchere, a Ghanaian broadcast journalist, has been the host of “Good Evening Ghana,” a popular current affairs TV program in Ghana, for nearly 30 years.

Beyond his media career, he served as a board member of the National Communications Authority and later assumed the position of Chairperson of the Board of Ghana Airports Company Limited.

Adom-Otchere attended Presbyterian Boys’ Senior High School for his secondary education and pursued higher education at the University of Ghana, where he earned a Bachelor of Arts in Politics and Classics.

Subsequently, he studied Law at the same university, and he furthered his education at the University of London’s School of Oriental and African Studies, obtaining a Master of Science in Development Economics.

“The NPP entreats its members to remain true to their duties as per Article 3(5) of the party Constitution. We further call upon our members to bear in mind that the Party’s focus is to unite its ranks and rally the support of Ghanaians to make history by winning the 2024 general elections,” the statement said.
