The Ghanaian cabinet has approved the spending of US$95 million on its digital migration programme.
Every African country is required to move all of its broadcasting signal from analogue to digital by June 2015, but so far only Mauritius has completed the migration.
Murtala Mohammed, Ghana’s deputy information minister, briefed the media on Friday and said the government was prepared to spend the necessary US$95 million to ensure a smooth transition.
Mohammed did however say the government would look at ways to generate revenue to cover the costs of helping television and radio stations to migrate.
HumanIPO reported earlier today the Nigerian government was expecting to make US$2 billion from the auction of ultra high frequency which will be made available from the digital migration process.
