Communications and Digitalization Minister, Ursula Owusu-Ekuful (MP) on Friday, 16th of April, 2021 reiterated the need for the passage of a broadcasting law to regulate broadcasting activities in the country.
According to her, the passage of the law was long overdue.
Mrs Owusu-Ekuful (MP) said happenings in the current media landscape was unfortunate and there was the urgent need to regulate activities to bring sanity into the system.
She was speaking at a consultative meeting organised by the Ministry of Information at Alisa Hotel on the regulation of broadcasting activities in the country.
The Minister said working together, ” we will be able to craft a solution that will be acceptable to everyone” and that it was absolutely critical to have a broadcasting regulation to guide the content that was produced.
She was of the view that since social media and traditional media had a thin line separating them, the rules which guide traditional media must be crafted in a way that will guide new media as well.
