Leader of the Ghana Independence Broadcasters Association (GIBA) has believed that establishing a broadcasting law is essential for the growth of the media fraternity.
As per Andrews Danso-Ahenkorah, these guidelines will go far to help build up the country.
"We need regulations if we are going to talk about development, we need regulations when we are going to talk about growth, and we need regulations to be able to convince ourselves that this is how we started from and this how far we have come and through this we are here," he revealed to JoyNews' Evans Mensah.
His remarks follow a partner meeting held Friday to consider on measures important to forestall the telecom of unseemly media substance just as to apply suitable assents to all who break the law.
Pastor for Information, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah says the public authority is taking contributions from technocrats and industry specialists and simultaneously being careful in the section of the Broadcasting Bill.
Then again, the Executive Director of the Media Foundation for West Africa (MFWA), Sulemana Braimah has complimented government for the public discourse on the Broadcasting Bill expected to be passed into law should it be affirmed.
Mr Braimah uncovered that the drafting of the bill's section is long late as a country that has appreciated just about 30 years of autonomous telecom.
"It is quite surprising that the nation is yet to finalise a framework that will respond to what is provided for in Article 164, there need to be legislation to ensure that the freedoms are qualified appropriately”.
