The NMC ruled that the Joy News documentary on the presence of D-Eye group at the Christiansborg Castle was in the public interest but cites aspects as sensational.
Samuel Okudzeto was of the view that government should should not have gone to NMC while Nkrumah the ruling is an opportunity for sober reflection for Joy FM, other media houses.
Also discussed was the $4.5m expenditure for Ghana’s participation at this year’s AFCON in Egypt. The revelation by Sports Minister Isaac Asiamah has not sank down well with many dissatisfied with the Black Stars abysmal performance at the tournament.
The panelists touched on the exoneration of former Secretary to the Inter-Ministerial Committee on illegal Mining (IMCIM), Charles Cromwell Nanabanyin Onuawonto Bissue, from allegations of corruption.
Despite an ongoing parallel investigation by the Office of the Special Prosecutor, the Daily Graphic on Monday reported that a probe conducted by the Police concluded that Mr Bissue did not circumvent the laid down procedures of the IMCIM hence cannot be found culpable of any offence.
