Annan Forson petitions National Media Commission over ‘porn’ stations

Two broadcasters have petitioned the National Media Commission and the Ministry of Information against TV XYZ, Ice TV and Thunder TV for showing hard core pornographic materials on their screens.

Ace broadcaster Tommy-Annan Forson and James Kwasi Oberko on Monday, June 12, made the complaint against the three television stations in Ghana for showing contents with pornographic scenes.

Speaking on Starr Today Monday, Mr. Annan Forson said “the showing of these pornographic movies is a serious issue which needs to be tackled”.

According to the former General Manager of Radio XYZ “these kind of movies when aired on television are dangerous to the upbringing of the children.”

He mentioned that the rate of teenage pregnancy in the country can be attributed to the kind of pornographic movies shown on those stations.

Mr. Annan Forson is by his petition demanding that the media commission tackles the issue immediately based on the evidence that has been presented to them.

He added that they would later serve the National Communications Authority, the Chief Justice and Speaker of Parliament copies of their complaints.

In his response, the Executive Secretary of NMC, Mr. George Sarpong congratulated the two broadcasters for taking such a bold step in the interest of Ghana and assured them of their support.

“I want to thank you for the effort that you put into this and I hope that we will get back to you. In fact, this gesture shows there is a lot of hope for the media landscape.”
