The Minister made this known on the floor of Parliament in a respond to a questions by the Parliamentary Member for the area on steps the Information Ministry is taking to install a transmission system to extend radio reception to Salaga and its environs. Mr Akologu said the old 15W SPAM Transmitter
which developed a major fault have been sent to the manufacturer, Rohda & Schwarz (R&S) in Germany for repairs hence the need for this stop- gap measure.
He explained that a team installing new transmitters in Tamale will be visiting Salaga to replace the old smaller 15W SPAM Transmitter
to provide radio reception and enable the people access information.
The Minister assured member of the House that his Ministry is making all efforts to restore radio transmission in the area not withstanding some challenges, adding that the Ministry recognises the free flow of public information in pursuance of the open Government policy.
