Asamoah Gyan congratulates George Weah


Akufu-Addo: The power to collect TV license fee stems from two military decrees passed by NLC and PNDC respectively which can only be considered anachronistic. The laws of Ghana include all those laws that have not been superseded by bills passed into law by the fourth republic. Since the two laws were decrees it will be prudent for the current cabinet to consider the issue and place a bill before parliament. If this is not done the revenue that would be collected would end up in the pockets of a few people. Cabinet must look for a more prudent way to collect the tv license fee. Collecting the fee at our ports through CEPS is a more elegant way.

Akufo-Addo must ensure that all PNDC laws that have not been superseded by constitutional provisions of the fourth republic or bills passed by parliaments of the fourth republic are replaced.
