Some persons, have alleged that the closure of Radio Gold and Radio XYZ is politically motivated because they are Pro-NDC stations.

Responding to questions during her vetting, Mrs. Ursula Owusu-Ekuful who is the Minister designate for Communications said that she had no ideas about the political affiliations or ownership of many radio stations closed down by the National Communications Authority.

She said;

I had no idea of the political affiliations or ownership of many of these stations. I believe the chairman’s station also suffered from the exercise. It couldn’t have been selective, discriminative or unfair treatment.

Unfortunately, in enforcing the law, one has no way of knowing where the chips will fall.

Nobody could have touched any media house if they hadn’t acted in contravention of the law.
