Following the Director-General of the Ghana Broadcasting Corporation (GBC), Major (Rtd) Albert Don-Chebe's justification of the revival of the TV license fee, some Ghanaians have voiced their reservations about the decision.

Major (Rtd) Don-Chebe on the Citi Breakfast Show said his outfit has been unable to deliver quality services due to poor funding.  

“GBC has suffered tremendously from lack of funding and this has obviously impacted negatively on its ability to do the things that it’s been mandated to do.… Because of the several years of poor funding, it will defiantly impact on equipment, motivation, and the state of the whole organization,” he said.

Social media platform, twitter has been buzzing with views from a section of the public. Here are samples.

 

 

 

The collection of television (TV) license fees, according to the National Media Commission (NMC), will resume in August 2015.

Out of the amount, GBC will take tha largest share of 72%, the Ghana Independent Broadcasters Association (GIBA) will take 15%, the Media Development Fund will take 4%, the National Media Commission will take 4%, Film will take 2% and for managing the collection, GBC will take an extra 2% which will bring their number to 75%.
