Today, Johnnie Hughes, a broadcast journalist and anchor of the TV3 New Day show, posed a series of questions on the country’s internet data usage. Data is highly costly in the nation, according to Johnnie Hughes, as compared to other African countries. He challenged Honorable Ursula Owusu, a member of parliament for Ablekuma West who also serves as the Minister of Communication, to explain to Ghanaians why data is so costly in the nation.

Johnnie Hughes again added that Ghana is now becoming one of the best-digitized economies in Africa but the level of data usage by the Telecommunication companies seem unfair. He added that everyone seems to be quiet about this. He also raised points to the fact that whenever people buy data, it gets finished before they even realise it. Johnnie Hughes is urging all stakeholders to this data usage especially the Minister of Communication to come and explain certain points to Ghanaians because the country cannot go digital with such costs of internet data.
