Private legal practitioner, Maurice Ampaw has stated clearly that only foolish people will take an entrenched stance whether he or she will not pay TV license in the country.
Lawyer Maurice Ampaw made this known when speaking in a radio interview with Silver FM in Kumasi where he urged Ghanaians to pay the levy irrespective of how people feel in relation to GTV’s content.
“You can’t argue in the law court that, GTV has not been offering you what you like so there is no reason to pay TV license. Therefore instead of paying a small amount why do you prefer to pay more when being sent to court?”, he said.
After the message went viral with the government, Kwame Asare Obeng also known as A-Plus has ignited a public debate indicated, he will never pay TV license and is therefore ready to face the law to defend his decision.
Meanwhile, eleven special courts have been set up by the AG throughout the country to ensure culprits are charged and fined for defying orders to pay TV license.
Many Ghanaian citizens have, however, jumped into the fray to defend the position of A plus indicating that there is nothing unique about the state broadcaster to warrant the payment of GH¢36 as TV license.
“It will be ‘unwise’ for anyone to refuse to pay looking at the cost involved when you are charged with defying the law”, Lawyer Maurice Ampaw added.
