Kevin Ekow Baidoo Taylor, a social media communicator, has alleged that the Akufo-Addo led administration through the National Communications Authority (NCA) is planning to shut down social media ahead of the 2020 Presidential and Parliamentary elections.
According to him, the NCA Boss Joseph Anokye, Asamoah Boateng, Daniel McKorley (McDan) and the Leba Brothers are working tirelessly to make sure that they rig the elections for President Akufo-Addo and the New Patriotic Party (NPP).
He said on “With All Due Respect,” a Facebook live show that, the NCA Boss as smart as he is planning to ‘force the traffic’, that is, to shut down the router-level of the internet as well as the bandwidth manager which will disrupt the smooth running of the internet.
This shut down, Kevin Taylor said will affect the internet connectivity in the country before, during and after the 2020 elections.
“When the campaign starts, during the campaign and for election time, people will experience that Facebook has become slower with the help of the bandwidth manager. This will affect Instagram, Twitter and especially Facebook. A lot of Ghanaians will be struggling to get smooth running internet to either go live, post or upload photos to Facebook,” he stated.
He added that the increase in talk tax is a way of preventing people to even buy data to access the internet.
Kevin Taylor, therefore warned the NCA boss to desist from his intended plan else he will organise a very big demonstration against him.
“Mr Anokye if you are listening to me your credibility is on the line…if you dare start distracting the internet or Facebook I will personally come to Ghana, join my brothers and sisters and you will see one of the biggest youth uprisings…we will make sure that our democracy is protected,” he stressed.
