NMC Extends Deadline For Onua Radio/TV, Captain Smart To Apologise For ‘Inciteful’ Broadcast

Spread the love

The National Media Commission (NMC) has extended its deadline for Onua TV/FM and Captain Smart to apologize for their inciteful broadcast to November 24, 2023.

The NMC said Captain Smart had directly insulted the Chief of the Defence Staff (CDS) and other Commanders of the Ghana Armed Forces (GAF) as “beasts” during a recent broadcast.

It further stated that Captain Smart had claimed that these officers embezzled monies meant for soldiers on peacekeeping operations but had offered no evidence to support his claims.

The NMC, therefore, gave Onua TV/FM and Captain Smart until November 19, 2023, to withdraw the insults and apologize to the CDS and his commanders; apologize to the Ghanaian public for the use of vulgar language, and put in measures to stop the dangerous behavior of the station and improve the station’s capacity for regulatory compliance.

However, Onua TV/FM, in its letter dated November 21, 2023, allegedly failed to address the directives of the commission.

So the NMC, in a statement issued on Tuesday, November 21, 2023, said, “We consider your letter a red herring strategy to avoid taking responsibility for your actions.”

“Yet we are prepared to extend our deadline to Friday, November 24, 2023, after which we may act without any further reference to you.”
