NCA will shut down the internet on election day – Mahama

Former President and flag bearer of opposition National Democratic Congress(NDC), John Dramani Mahama fears that the National Communications Authority will shut down the Internet in the country on the day of elections.

According to Mr. Mahama, he fears the NCA will hijack the internet due to the way they handle the media organizations in their coverage of scandals and opposition parties recently.

Speaking in an interview with TV XYZ Sunday, Mahama disclosed that his interviews with Kumasi-based Abusua FM a few weeks ago was compromised after the frequency of the station was jammed by the NCA.

“One of the tragedies of the Akufo-Addo government is the bastardization of state agencies. And the NCA has been an example. In my recent interview with Abusua FM, we had advertised the show, then on the day, the NCA took their frequency off so they had to shift to Ultimate FM.

“I’m also aware of what they did to Joy when they were going to broadcast that investigative piece on the National Lotteries. Joe Anokye is handling the NCA as a political office. I think on election day they can shut down the internet or any of the things dictators do. I hope we win and stop all that,” he said.
