A press statement which was  issued by STRANEK on Thursday December 3 said “We are greatly concerned about the alleged deliberate interference in internet services and government’s plot to shut down internet on Election Day. We have also had serious concerns about government through the National Communication Authority acquiring equipment for a successful shut down of internet access including limiting social media  access.

STRANEK-Africa deems such intentions by government as a threat to the free expression and information dissemination which could be an infringement of the fundamental rights of Ghanaians as enshrined in article 21 of our 1992 Constitution.

“Article 21 explains that the good people of Ghana have the freedom of speech and expression which includes freedom of the press and other media including social media,” he said.
