The Ghana Revenue Authority (GRA) recently shutdown the Accra-based television station Metro TV, reportedly over their failure to pay their taxes valued at 2.3million Ghana Cedis to the state.

A visit by www.razzonline.com to the Cantonment premises of the television station revealed that the GRA had restricted entry into the company with a seal of the Commissioner General.

It is quite unclear if the shutting down of the popular television station influenced Frema's decision to quit.
