The National Broadcaster, the Ghana Broadcasting Corporation and its many outlets across the country risk going off-air if the company’s indebtedness to the Electricity Company of Ghana (ECG) is not paid immediately.
At a meeting of the National Media Commission (NMC) and President Akufo-Addo, Chairman of the Commission, Yaw Boadu-Ayeboafoh said the debt of GH¢25m has dire consequence for National Security Council if not paid promptly.
He said on Wednesday that the country’s spy agency relies heavily on the services of GBC and its outlets to monitor events in the country.
Nana Addo Danquah Akufo-Addo has directed the Information Minister, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah, to treat the issue as urgent to bring an amicable resolution.
The President, who has been meeting organised bodies, took the opportunity to caution the media against yellow-journalism.
The media must be balanced and fair, the president admonished.
Nana Akufo-Addo further called for a clear balance between media freedom and responsibility.
