13 Oct 2011

The government of Ghana has implemented plans that will result in a decentralisation of the operations of the country’s telecoms regulator the National Communications Authority (NCA), according to Ghana Business News citing the minister of communications, Haruna Iddrissu, as saying. At a press briefing held in the capital, Accra, on 3 October, Mr Iddrissu said: ‘As I speak the Authority is in the process of establishing regional offices in Kumasi, Sekondi-Takoradi and Tamale to enhance close monitoring activities and also help address customer concerns in a decentralised manner.’ The new offices could be operational as early as 30 November, he added. Further, as part of the ongoing revamp, regional offices in Volta, Brong-Ahafo and Upper East Regions will be established in 2012.
