Currently circulating: NDC MPs approved NPP appointees in exchange of Radio Gold and XYZ licenses.

The NDC Member of Parliament for Tamale Central Constituency in the Northern Region, Honourable Ibrahim Murtala Muhammed, has spoken on the current rumors hitting the social media, regarding the recent release of licenses for Radio XYZ and Radio Gold.

The rumors which is currently circulating in Ghana; and on social media, has it that; the National Democratic Congress (NDC), Members of Parliament have approved some Minister appointees for the ruling NPP, in exchange of the FM radio broadcasting authorizations to Radio XYZ and Radio which were closed down in 2017.

Speaking on Pan African TV’s morning program ‘Good Morning Africa’, on Wednesday October 13 2021, Honorable Muntala Mohammed said the claims are false, and that, as far as he Muntala is concern…no arrangement or exchange negotiation was done with the NPP, for the release of silences for the FM stations.


According to him, the NDC leadership in parliament did not also inform them (the NDC MPs) of any such arrangement; that they should approve some Nana Addo’s Ministers in exchange of authorization of the Radio Gold and Radio XYZ.

According to Hon. Murtala Muhammed; the NDC members in Parliament have no hates for any of the Nana Addo’s appointees, but were only against those appointees that they thought, were not fit or qualified for the ministerial roles.

He stressed that, the public should disregard the claims; and that the NDC caucus never approved any Minister for the purpose of negotiating grant of license for Radio Gold and XYZ.

The Governing Board of the National Communications Authority (NCA), in a Board meeting on October 11 2021, approved the grant of a total of One Hundred and Thirty Three (133) FM radio broadcasting authorizations, which include new applications from entities whose FM radio stations were closed down, after the 2017 FM Audit as well as existing stations which applied for renewal of their expired FM Radio broadcasting authorizations.

Do you think…or believe , that the NDC MPs in parliament really went into an agreement with the NPP MPs, for the return of Radio XYZ and Radio Gold?
