After years of being taken off the Ghanaian airwaves, lovers and fans of Radio Gold and radio XYZ can finally breathe a sigh of relief because the licenses of Radio Gold and radio XYZ have been approved by the National Communication Authority.
Reacting to the approval of the licenses of radio Gold and radio XYZ, the Members of Parliament for Tamale Central Constituency, Comrade Ibrahim Murtala Mohammed, has revealed that most of his colleagues avoided granting interviews on Radio Gold because they were operating online.
Comrade Ibrahim Murtala Mohammed made this revelation on 'Good Morning Africa' on Pan Africa television this morning when he revealed how the Radio Gold struggled when they were taken off the Ghanaian airwaves.
According to Murtala Mohammed, he commends the journalists that remained working at radio gold even though it was closed down.
Comrade Ibrahim Murtala Mohammed indicated that some of them who were close to the remaining workers knew the conditions they were going through because they struggled on their own just to come on air.
He revealed that whenever he grants interviews on radio gold, they complained to him that when they invite some of his colleagues to come on their programs, they don't because they are now operating online.
"I remember there was a day that I was going to have an interview at radio gold online and a colleague called me and I told him that I have a program at radio gold, and he was like, "but radio gold is not functioning" and I said yes, but it's now online, and he said " ahh! Murtala paa" I'm now waiting to see the day that person will appears on that program, and I will call unto the program and question him. I was surprised when he said that because the program needed to be sustained."
Murtala Mohammed added that sometimes when you go radio gold, the workers who are not paid and had no source of income will manage to get to you water to drink, so he will praise them for their hard work.
