Government not behind XYZ and Radio Gold closure – Information Minister

Yesterday two pro-NDC radio stations were asked to close down a few minutes after they had started a live broadcast of an NDC press conference where they planned to address some issues after the police CID sent an invitation to the party’s chairman.

After news of went viral, some people started accusing the government of the day led by President Akuffo Addo of witch-hunting the opposition party thereby asking the National communication Authority to close down the two station.

But reacting to this the Minister of Information, Hon. Kojo Oppong Nkrumah has denied the government involvement in the closure as the public believe.

According to Oppong Nkrumah, the exercise by the NCA cuts across various user of spectrums and that the exercise is not politically motivated.

“I am very sure some persons would speculate that this exercise appears to be an action against the two radio stations that may appear to be unaligned to the current administration. But the brief I have is that, this exercise cuts across various user of spectrums who have been cautioned that they had been operating without authorization for some years now. And this exercise has been going on for a year now,”.
