Radio Gold/XYZ Shutdown: Terlabi slams NCA; says they lacked good judgement

The Member of Parliament [MP] for Lower Manya Constituency in the Eastern Region, Ebenezer Okletey Terlabi has criticized the National Communication Authority (NCA) for closing down Radio Gold and XYZ at a time both were broadcasting a press conference being held by the National Democratic Congress (NDC).

The NCA on May 9 shut down two Accra based radio stations, Radio Gold 90.5 FM and Radio XYZ 93.1 FM.

A statement issued by the NCA said: "Radio stations operating without valid authorizations as determined by the 2017 FM Broadcasting Audit are being shut down with immediate effect as an enforcement action in view of the decision of the Electronic Communications Tribunal."

Speaking on Peace FM's morning show 'Kokrokoo', Terlabi slammed the NCA saying they lacked good judgement and that "they could have waited, after the programme then you take action, it was very very wrong, the motivation was also wrong."
