Alfred Larbi the owner of Accra-based OXY FM told that he will not be able to pay the hefty penalty the National Communications Authority (NCA) slapped on his radio station for non-compliant of media regulation.
Alfred Larbi told Evans Mensah on Joy FM’s Newsnight Monday even if he were to sell his children, he will not be able to raise the ¢1.5 million fine slapped on his station by the NCA.
According to him it is never true that his radio station flouted the NCA’s rules governing the renewal of licenses in the country.
He further said “The law says you have to notify them three months when the license expires which I did. Then they sent me a letter acknowledging receipt that they are going to study it and get back to me,”
He said he never heard from the Authority again until he received a notice of suspension with the demand for some documents including his tax clearance.
His explanations came three days after NCA sanctioned some 131 radio stations for various offenses including nonpayment of fees and renewal of licenses.
Alfred Larbi said the NCA is in the wrong since he did not violate the terms of his license.
“They gave me a wrong letter, even they quoted a wrong frequency on my letter. I am broadcasting on 98.5 FM but they sent a bill through 89.9 FM,” he observed.
