A few days ago there was news about Chief Justice setting up a court purposely to prosecute defaulters of Television licence fees.
But the controversial musician, Kwame Asare Obeng aka A Plus who thinks it is nonsense to institute such a court has vowed never to pay a dime for TV licence fees.
According to the Kwame A Plus, he is willing to be the first defaulter to be jailed.
The Ghana Broadcasting Corporation (GBC) in a way to generate revenue for the national Television secured permission from Sophia Akuffo–Chief Justice to collect fees from television sets owners in the country.
According to the directive, failure to pay the recommended fees could result in a jail term for the defaulter. According to a report by mynewsgh, Kwame A Plus has stated firmly that he would never pay any television licence fees and that he is ready to go to jail.

A Plus continued that, the law is hogwash and cautioned that the NPP government would bear the consequences during the 2020 elections.
“What is on GTV that anyone must go to jail for not paying to watch! First it was tow levy. Now it’s this nonsense. I will never pay!!! 2018 I will organize a demonstration against TV license.
I want to be the first to go to jail for not paying TV license. Ghanaians are under pressure already. Bring this nonsense and jail them and see what will happen in 2020. Abi you remember the motor court? …” A Plus stressed.
The eristic musician believes that Ghanaians are already facing financial difficulties and therefore wouldn’t be fair to implement such a law which would burden Ghanaians in the end.
The musician believes that the only way out is to demonstrate against the government to throw the law out.
“Any government which charge it’s poor people import duty for TV sets and charge them annually for owning it is very wicked and clueless!!! Give me liberty or give me death”, A Plus concluded
