The Ghana Broadcasting Corporation, GBC,
has suspended the collection of the TV
Licence fee which begins today.
The decision was arrived at to pave the way
for the determination of an interim interlocutory
injection case on the collection and disbursements of the fee.
The Executive Director of the Media
Foundation for West Africa, Suleiman Braimah,
says it is good for the GBC to suspend the
collection of the revised TV licence fee to do
more public education on it. He said this will pave the way for enough
consultation and education on the issue.
Speaking to Radio Ghana, Mr. Braimah
however underscored the need for every
citizen to pay the TV license fee to ensure
effective public service broadcasting. Mr. Braimah also identified some concerns
which need to be addressed before the
resumption of the collection.
