Astute businessman Dr. Papa Kwesi Nduom has advised government to nip the idea to set up a digital migration company and collect revenue from it.

Dr. Nduom in his recent Facebook post noted that there are more “socially responsible” and “necessary economic problems” which government must channel its efforts at solving.

“We must do what is needed, before we attempt to do what we desire. Health care facilities, schools, roads, water, bridges, electricity needed!” he stated.

Below is the full statement of Dr. Nduom on Facebook

A TERRIBLE IDEA WILL REMAIN TERRIBLE NO MATTER HOW IT IS DRESSED UP.

I found this somewhere on the internet written by a well-known media person:

“How will government generate revenue?

The idea is that, government will set up a digital migration company that will manage the channels. That company will take a commission for all content encrypted. So that the more content and the more subscribers that pay for content, the more revenue at hand for government.

For instance in a particular month, 10 million Ghanaians have each paid 2 cedis for content ranging from people who watched Ghana’s most beautiful on TV3 PLUS, those who viewed entertainment programs, news programs and special event programs, the government receives commissions and fees for being the spectrum operator, those monies can be used to run the system to reduce burden on tax money.”

Government to set up a digital migration company and collect revenue? Why? Bad, bad idea. Let’s nip this in the bud. Government has more socially responsible and necessary economic problems to solve. We must do what is needed, before we attempt to do want we desire. Health care facilities, schools, roads, water, bridges, electricity needed!
