The presidential candidate of the National Democratic Congress, ex-president John Dramani Mahama ha promised that he will reopen radio stations that were closed down under the current president, Nana Akufo-Addo.
Some radio stations were closed down by the National Communication Authority (NCA) about a year ago for not submitting new applications for FM authorization according the Minister of Communication, Mrs. Ursula Owusu Ekuful, which was in accordance with Electronic Communication Tribunal (ECT).
Speaking at the town hall meeting in Kumasi, Mahama said “All radio stations shut down by Nana Addo will be opened to ensure press freedom. So, Radio Gold, Montie FM and all the others will be operational again,”.
