Stakeholders Review Draft Broadcasting Bill

The Minister of Communications, Hon. Dr.  Edward Omane Boamah, has said the liberalization of the air waves is a mixed blessing since it has helped to improve the lives of the people, and could also serve as a platform to undermine public good.

He said a draft Broadcasting Bill had therefore been prepared to address challenges identified in the legal and regulatory framework of broadcasting in Ghana.

The Minister said this at a stakeholder’s forum to consider the draft Broadcasting Bill after which it will be presented to government for consideration.
