Broadcasting bill under review – Oppong Nkrumah

Information Minister, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah says the Broadcasting Bill is not before Parliament yet because portions of it are currently under review.

According to him, despite the general perception that the bill has been hindered for political reasons, his outfit was working around the clock to address all the concerns raised about the bill.

“The reason for which it has been a delay in laying in before parliament is not for want of political will.

“I think we’ve demonstrated enough when it comes to laws to do with free expression etc, we’ve already committed RTI (Right to Information Act) and its implementation,” he said on January 17, 2023.

The Information Minister explained that the bill initially did not cover all aspects of broadcasting but has evolved to include digital media and other forms of new media to meet the current times.
