NCA stands to give some media houses opportunity to operate in the country again has brought a lot of discussion amongst the general public.
Broadcast journalist and morning show host for Metro TV good morning Ghana show, Randy Abbey has questioned the ruling New Patriotic Party communicator, Nana Fredua Agyemang Ofori Atta on live TV today after saying that there's is a lot of chaos in town about NCA allowing Radio gold, Radio XYZ and some media houses to reapply for license to operate.
Nana Fredua Agyemang Ofori Atta speaking on Metro TV good morning Ghana show today stated that he does not have any problem about what NCA did but he may ask that, what is national media commission going to do about the amount of debts owed by those media houses before its closure?
Nana Fredua Agyemang Ofori Atta said that there's chaos in town and Ghanaians are divided about the approval of some two media houses and said some people seems to say that there's selectivity in the closure of those media houses.
Randy Abbey brilliantly questioned him that if he is saying there's selectivity and chaos in town, what should government do about that as they are moving forward?
Randy Abbey first of all told him that there's selectivity in the closure of some radio stations as Oman Fm was left behind when it's expected to be close down but Nana Fredua Agyemang stated that, all the media houses were giving opportunity to reapply as Oman Fm did so they should blame the rest of the media houses for not complying with the laws.
Nana Fredua Agyemang Ofori Atta responding to Randy Abbey's question stated that government should educate the various media houses to go to the right sources for their license instead of following Politician who will create problem for them later.
He however admitted that the various Radio stations being closed down is as a result of Political influence and advised that media organization should stop approaching Politicians to help them acquire license for their Radio stations.
