“Unapproved adverts like ‘money doubling’ will be banned from 1st May” – NFA


The National Film Authority has served notice of enforcement of the law that empowers it to preview and classify audio visual content meant for broadcast.

This includes feature films, short films, TV series, selected TV programs, documentaries among others.

This was made known by the Chairman of the National Film Authority (NFA), Socrate Safo, stating that from 1st May 2021 all unapproved and unclassified advertisements surrounding money ritual or money doubling will be clamped down.

He further revealed that such businesses will be subjected to pass through the offices of the Security and Exchange Commission (SEC) and Bank of Ghana (BoG) for a licence to operate in money doubling businesses to run an advert to that effect.

“If you approach us with a program and the content is about money doubling, then we expect you to have such a license. 

 If you are Mallam and you want to double money all we are requiring from you is to show us a licence you have from the Security and Exchange Commission and the Bank of Ghana to operate as a money doubler. If you don’t have it, then we can’t classify such content for you,” he noted.
