NCA speaks on plans to shut down the internet on election day in December 7th, 2020.

This comes after former President and flag bearer of opposition National Democratic Congress(NDC), John Dramani Mahama during an interview with TV XYZ last Sunday, disclosed that his interview with Kumasi-based Abusua FM a few weeks ago was compromised after the frequency of the station was jammed by the NCA.

He also made reference to Joynews TV have a very poor signal immediately after it started broadcast of the investigative piece on the National Lotteries.

This drew people’s attention to the government through the National Communications Authority (NCA) interfering in the media space and freedom of speech.

In response, the NCA wrote

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 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”.

Mr. Sarpong’s accusation is also wholly false. Finally, a break in transmission of a documentary by Accra-based station, Joy FM, which was, apparently, experienced on multiple digital platforms on the night of 18th November, 2020, was also erroneously attributed by some to deliberate interference by the NCA.
