NCA shut down of radio Gold, XYZ politically motivated- Mahama

The National Communications Authority(NCA) on Thursday 9th May 2019 shut down two radio stations affiliated to the opposition National Democratic Congress-Radio XYZ and Radio Gold.

According to NCA, the two media powerhouses have failed to comply with the ruling of ECT as they failed to renew their broadcasting licenses.

Reacting to the closure of the two Accra-based radio stations, the former President John Mahama has expressed his displeasure over the NCA’s decision to shut down the two pro-opposition NDC radio stations.

According to the flagbearer of the main opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), the action by the NCA to close down the two radio stations were politically motivated.

“I believe that the role of a regulator is to build and not to destroy. So if they haven’t renewed their license, it’s your duty to remind them that you haven’t renewed your license. And eventually, you must even give them a notice and deadlines…say if you don’t renew them by this date we will shut you down” he emphasized.

Speaking in a question and answer session in an address at a Said Business School Seminar in the Oxford University, UK, John Mahama stated emphatically that the action by NCA was politically-bounded and that there are over 300 radio stations in Ghana and that he cannot fathom why only the two media houses were shut down without prior notice.

The point is there are more than 300 radio stations in Ghana, why those two? Those are the leading opposition stations so you do not need to be a clairvoyant to know that definitely there were political reasons behind the closure of those stations”. He added.
