Communications minister Dr. Edward Omane Boamah has said the current public discussions and outrage over the error-laden 59th Independence Day anniversary brochure are signs of nation building.

Dr. Boamah who has now assumed responsibility for the Flagstaff House communications in a Facebook post Friday, thanked Ghanaians for commenting on the matter.

“I have listened and listened. Several people have made very cogent points borne out of their genuine desires to develop our nation.

“This epitomises nation building- a nation on the move in the right direction. Thanks for your contributions,” he wrote.

The brochure, which was riddled with errors, making Ghana a butt of joke before it peers in the comity of nations, referred to Kenyan leader Uhuru Kenyatta as the president of Ghana.

The boss of the Information Services Department (ISD) Francis Arthur has been fired over the issue, but pressure group – OccupyGhana – has threatened to go to court over the matter unless it is furnished with names of the companies that bid for the brochure.
