Popular Ghanaian media personality Bridget Otoo has revealed the real reason the government shut down Radio Gold, a Ghanaian radio station.
The eloquent presenter who holds a degree in Mass Communication from Ghana Institute of Journalism and a Masters Degree in Entrepreneurial Management from University of Ghana Legon, took to her Twitter account to make the revelation.
According to the on air personality, the government through the Ghana National Communication Authority (NCA) used technical jargons to shut down Radio Gold. She said that almost all radio stations in Ghana have one infraction or the other, but they are still allowed to operate.
According to her, the real reason behind the shutting down of Radio Gold was political. In the tweet Bridget said “They used all the technical jargons to shut radio gold down. I bet you 90% of all stations in Ghana have one infraction or the other but theyâ€™re operating.!! Donâ€™t tell me politics didnâ€™t influence the decision to shut radio gold.”
Recall that the Ghana National Communication Authority (NCA) had last year shut down Radio Gold for failure to renew their license. The decision which was criticised by the management of Radio Gold and many others, since the management of Radio Gold maintained that they had literally chased the NCA with money to renew their operating license.
Could it be true that politics is behind the shutting down of the popular radio station?
