Broadcast Journalist with Medial General, 3FM Johnnie Hughes apologizes to some persons whose names were captured in a document he shared on social media claiming that the listed persons were beneficiaries of GNPC Foundation Foreign Scholarship Scheme.

Amid the furor about the awarding of scholarships by the Ghana Scholarship Secretariat to persons with affiliations to the government and New Patriotic Party, Johnnie shared a photo on Saturday, April 13, 2024, which captured the names of some key members of the National Democratic Congress (NDC) as beneficiaries of the GNPC Scholarship Scheme.

The publication by the journalist via his social media page triggered a series of denials from all the above-named persons with Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa hinting at the possibility of legal action.

As a result, Johnnie Hughes has issued an apology to the persons named on the list albeit with an explanation that he did not impugn any wrongdoing on anyone by sharing the document.

”Friends, let me first of all, state that my post with the caption “Odaseni” is without malice or ill intention.”

”Perhaps, I should have added a few more words to the caption, “Odaseni”, or maybe posed the question I had in my mind when I decided to make a post on what is now clear to a section of the public, as a calculated form of equilisation for The Fourth Estate’s ‘SCHOLARSHIP BONANZA’.

”Since I was hesitant in doing same, and also for the fact that my post has been given many different interpretations and connotations for various reasons (including political), I owe it a duty to sincerely apologise to all persons who feel slighted by my post.
