Following the arrest of Nana Agrada for her allegedly money doubling scam (Sika Gari), the National Communications Authority (NCA) is getting ready to shut down all illegal TV stations in Ghana.
According to the National Communications Authority (NCA) the exercise will shut down 49 Television (TV) stations for operating without Authorisations.
This forms part of a continuous monitoring exercise conducted on various Satellite Free-to-Air Television platforms using the Broadcast Monitoring System (BMS) and the Radio Spectrum Monitoring System (RSMS).
The monitoring revealed that some channels were operating without valid Authorisations, contrary to Section 2(4) of the Electronic Communications Act 775 of 2008, which states that, ‘Except as provided by this Act or any other law not inconsistent with this Act, a person shall not operate.
As a result, forty-nine (49) channels have been identified to be operating without valid Authorisations from the Authority and is being shut down accordingly.
