Kumasi, Aug 31, GNA
– Public response to the Television license fee is reported to be generally
poor as many appear reluctant to pay.

Pastor Ebenezer
Botwi, acting Director of Finance of the Ghana Broadcasting Corporation (GBC),
said steps were being taken to ensure compliance.

He indicated that it
would soon embark on a special exercise to enforce the law.

He was contributing
to discussions at a half-year performance review meeting of the GBC in Kumasi,
attended by regional managers and district heads from across the nation.

Pastor Botwi said
they would combine public education and other strategies to encourage the
people to readily walk to designated points to pay the fees.

He also spoke of the
determination of the corporation to improve the content of its programmes to
give viewers value for money.

Mr. Thomas
Nsowah-Adjei, Brong-Ahafo Regional Manager, called for continued public
education to help everybody to appreciate the need to pay the fee and suggested
the active involvement of the chiefs and other opinion leaders, especially in
the rural communities.

He rallied all the
workers to unite in their effort to bring in more revenue.
