Communications minister Dr. Edward Omane Boamah will next week face parliament over the error-ridden 59th Independence Day anniversary brochure that has caused embarrassment to the country.

The error-prone brochure, authored by the Information Services Department (ISD), referred to Kenya leader Uhuru Kenyatta as the President of Ghana, while describing the 59-year-old country as a “low income country” among other misrepresentations.

Some parliamentarians, according to Starr News’ Kobby Gomez Mensah, are infuriated with the development which has seen the acting head of the Information Services Department losing his job.

Francis Kwarteng Arthur who has claimed responsibility for the numerous mistakes was dismissed in a statement signed by the Chief of Staff Thursday.

“Mr Francis Kwarteng Arthur has been relieved of his duties as Acting Director of the Information Services Department.

“A statement signed by the Chief of Staff, Mr Julius Debrah, also indicated that the Ministry of Communications assumes responsibility for the Flagstaff House Communications Bureau,” the statement said.

The gross misrepresentations in the brochure meant for the national Independence Day anniversary parade were met with mixed reactions with majority of Ghanaians calling for heads to roll.

However, the Founder/President of the Worldwide Miracle Outreach Dr Lawrence Tetteh wanted Ghanaians to temper justice with mercy, despite the embarrassment the Event Brochure caused the nation.
