“The EC Even Gave Agradaa Accreditation To Cover The 2020 Elections” – Johnny Hughes Boldly Speaks

Yesterday news broke out that the National Communications Authority has discovered and intends to close 49 television stations for operating without authorization. A day earlier Patricia Asiedua, popularly called Nana Agradaa had been arrested after a team of Police men stormed the premises of her stations. 

These events have brought to fore how come these illegal stations came to exist and who permitted them to operate. Johnny Hughes and Berla Mundi raised hard questions today, Thursday, April 22, 2021 on TV3’s ‘New Day’. According to them, it is surprising to know that these stations have been left to operate without any proper authorization.  

“The Electoral Commission gave her accreditation. Agradaa is a media person. Patricia Asiedua had accreditation to cover the elections. Don’t ask me how. She also has a private office ID card Thunder TV Dr. Patricia Asiedua. 

Someone at the NCA should not tell us they are going to close 49 stations. They need to tell us how those stations are operating. The NCA holds the spectrum on behalf of Ghanaians. They need to explain this. There is someone at the NCA who needs to explain things to Ghanaians. Today we will close them and next time more will be opened. Should we wait for a poor person to be hurt before we act?” Johnny queried.

As Johnny queried, do we always need to find a problem before we deal with issues? Are there people at the NCA who are not doing their jobs? Why did the NCA seek to close down some stations of GBC last year for space slots while these illegal stations were in operation?
