The Information Minister, Fatimatu Abubakar has urged the media to support the Ministry to push for the passage of the Broadcasting Bill into law.

According to her, the bill has received the biggest push under the current regime and needed support to prevent it from hanging.

“I believe you are aware that over the past few years, we've invited stakeholders on the draft broadcasting bill. We've done validation exercises, we've been going to the AG back, and we've called for input among others.

"Earlier this year, we got a final draft, which we sent back to the AG’s office for their comments. We’ve received the comments, but looking at the scope of work, so far as the draft is concerned, we are about 90% through with the scope of work, based on the inputs that have come from our stakeholders. That being said, we know that in terms of the draft we are at the final stage,” she emphasized.

She said the draft Bill has gone through several stages and currently is at its final stage hoping to be tabled before parliament soon.

Ms Abubakar made the remarks when she visited the Multimedia Group Limited as part of her tour of some media organizations in Accra.
