President Akufo-Addo has directed Communications Minister Ursula Owusu-Ekuful to suspend the directive to the Ghana Broadcasting Company (GBC) to reduce its digital channels.

The Communications Minister has come under fire in recent days after she instructed the state broadcaster to reduce its channels on the Digital Terrestrial Television (DDT).

However, the President has now stepped in and asked the Minister to suspend the implementation of the directive.
