ONE OF THE REASONS WHY WE FIRED BALAJO AS AN INTERN OF GTTV
This lady in the video is Fatoumatta Balajo. The fired GTTV intern. Earlier in the week, Ms Balajo ran to Freedom Newspaper and fabricated several lies against GTTV.
In the picture is Fatoumatta Balajo sleeping in our studio while an interview was going on. Instead of watching and learning from Fatou Samba this faithful day, she decided to sleep. This is one of several other reasons including her pre- arranging an interview with Councilor Tunko Jadama, selecting to interview Ebou Faye alone in the midst of several other people and changing the questions she discussed with her supervisors prior to her leaving the studio informed our decision to let her go contrary to her claims that she was fired because she interviewed Waa Banjul about Rohey Malick Lowe’s alleged drug scandal and we don’t like it. She went to do a vox pop (ask the public’s opinion about how they see the mayor’s hundred thousand face mask initiative. Therefore, she should not have pre-arranged any of those interviews). She further claimed that we fired her because Mayor Lowe is paying us D20,000 per month.
Our question is, D20,000 to do what for the mayor?
We know some of you will be wondering why we post this video and is it necessary to go this far? Our answer is yes. The young people of this country need to learn to tell the truth no matter what. They should also learn to not bite the finger that feed them. And they should not allow adults with selfish interests especially politicians to use them to fight their battles.
It is quite clear that Balajo had an ulterior motive or call it a hidden agenda if you like when she was going for this said project.
It is quite unfortunate that she will now try to present herself as a victim when she was given the maximum opportunity she desperately yearned to get. An opportunity that thousands of young people are looking for. One that she promised to take advantage of only to end up messing it up for herself by lying and fabricating stuff against us. But God in his goodness has exposed her.
Anyway, to all the young people of this country, be humble and wise. Be respectful to your elders, work hard for your livelihood instead of trying to use the shortcut. Try to go through the front door. Have an independent mindset and not allow yourself to be used.
Remember, you have a future ahead of you. So invest in your future.
