Information Minister, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah says the country has more than enough laws to clamp down on money doublers and spiritualists on our media space.
This comes after a ten-year-old boy was murdered in Kasoa with the police suggesting that the murderers were motivated by spiritualists they had been following on TV.
For this reason, many Ghanaians have shared concern about the activities of these spiritualists on the country’s media landscape and have called for swift action to be taken against them.
However, the Information Minister believes the country has enough laws to deal with such people.
“We’ve had reason to draw the attention of various regulators to some content on our media platforms that we think are unwholesome. We’ve had reason to draw the attention of various regulators that in today’s body of laws, there are enough laws to deal with some of these things, and we think that they have the capacity and legal remit to deal with it now….We are at a juncture where I think gradually there is common ground now to deal with such issues,” he said on the Point of View.
