John Mahama donates GHC100k to Radio Gold to restart operations

Former President John Mahama has donated a sum of GH¢100,000 to the management of Radio Gold to enable them restart operations.

The donation comes on the back of the return of the station’s operating licenses by the National Communications Authority (NCA).

A report by indicates that the cash donation was reportedly handed over to the management of the station on Wednesday, November 3, 2021.

It would be recalled that on October 12, the NCA announced the restoration of the radio broadcasting authorizations to Radio Gold, XYZ, and 131 others.

The refusal to pay operating licence fees and expiration of their licenses led to the revocation of the licenses of the NDC-affiliated Radio Gold and Radio XYZ.

According to the NCA the approval is subject to the applicants attending a sensitisation workshop on the terms and conditions of FM radio broadcasting authorisations.

The NCA indicated provisional authorisations shall be issued to the successful applicants at the end of the workshop and frequencies shall be assigned to the applicants only upon the fulfillment of the conditions of the Provisional Authorisation.
