NCA shuts down two more radio stations in Sunyani

The National Communications Authority (NCA) has shut down two radio stations in the Brong Ahafo Regional Capital, Sunyani.

General Manager of Space FM, Yaw Boadi Aboagye confirmed the station’s shutdown to Citi News‘ Brong Ahafo Regional correspondent, Michael Mfum.

The General Manager of Ark FM also confirmed the shutdown the station by the Authority but failed to speak on record.

These closures follow the shutdown of some five radio stations in an exercise that began last Thursday.

Following the initial shutdown of Radio XYZ and Radio Gold, Nananom FM, said to be owned by Asutifi South Member of Parliament and a former Works and Housing Minister Collins Dauda; Genesis FM, owned by NDC stalwart and a former Council of State Member, Nana Adjei Ampofo – both in the Ahafo Regional Capital town of Goaso – were closed on Friday for breaching licence regulations.

Sekpele FM at Likpe in the Oti Region was also closed down on Friday.

Although the NCA has said that exercise will be conducted throughout the country without restriction to ensure that all FM stations in the country meet the laid down licensing rules, it has been accused of acting in bad faith.

The NCA came under attack last week after shutting down Radio XYZ and Radio Gold, both pro-opposition FM stations over issues concerning their licenses.

Both stations claimed that they had been making efforts to get their licenses renewed but the NCA failed to attend to them.
