Meanwhile, the National Communications Authority (NCA) has dismissed allegations that it is interfering with the broadcasting services of some media houses in the country.

In a statement, the Authority said, claims that it recently interfered with the frequencies of some media houses are untrue and urged the public to disregard any allegations made to that effect.

“The National Communications Authority (NCA) has taken note of remarks on the online news portal Ghanaweb, dated 22nd November, 2020, and attributed to former President John Mahama in which he claims the NCA might shut down the Internet on Election Day, 7th December, 2020,” the statement said.

“The NCA hereby advises Ghanaians to disregard the remarks as completely unfounded. A second misleading publication on Ghanaweb, dated 12th November, 2020, was attributed to a former Deputy Communication Minister under the headline: “Ato Sarpong Blasts NCA for Taking Abusua FM Off Air before Mahama Interview.”
