As Ghana prepares for its upcoming general elections scheduled for Wednesday, 7 December, the National Communications Authority (NCA) has urged the five active Mobile Network Operators in the country to ensure excellent quality of service for customers on Election Day since they shall be held to the strictest quality of service (QoS) standards.

The Authority also cautioned content providers on electronic communication networks to desist from creating or spreading false information.

This was contained in a joint statement issued by the National Communications Authority (NCA) and the National Media Commission (NMC) in the run up to the 2016 general elections.

The statement appealed to the citizenry to ensure the judicious and responsible use of social media to promote peace during that critical period.

Earlier, the Inspector General of Police (IGP) John Kudalor had threatened that he may be forced to go the Ugandan way if social media became a tool for misinformation on Election Day. His comments did not go down well with social media enthusiasts and other civil society organisations in the country.
