Following the Director-General of the Ghana Broadcasting Corporation (GBC), Major (Rtd) Albert Don-Chebe's justification of the revival of the TV license fee, some Ghanaians have voiced their reservations about the decision.

Major (Rtd) Don-Chebe on the Citi Breakfast Show said his outfit has been unable to deliver quality services due to poor funding.  

“GBC has suffered tremendously from lack of funding and this has obviously impacted negatively on its ability to do the things that it’s been mandated to do.… Because of the several years of poor funding, it will defiantly impact on equipment, motivation, and the state of the whole organization,” he said.
