TV station executive walks several miles to protest distribution of licenses by former President – 2nd Apr 2013
In another show of disapproval over the way in which the radio licenses were distributed, NBTV executive, Charles Griffith, walked from Benfield on the East Coast of Demerara to the city, to sensitize citizens of article 82.
Griffith believes that article 82 is very poisonous and an enemy to all Guyanese. He feels, then President, Bharrat Jagdeo, used article 82 to issue radio licenses to his associates.
Griffith said the main focus of his protest is to raise the awareness among the Guyanese of this monster in article 82. Griffith is of the view that the article is wrong for Guyana’s constitution.
Private media practitioners are also calling for a level playing field in the distribution of the radio licenses.
