Ghana:Acting Director of Information Service Sacked

The embattled acting Director of the Information Service Department (ISD) has been fired, a government statement Thursday has revealed.

“Mr Francis Kwarteng Arthur has been relieved of his duties as acting Director of the Information Services Department,” the statement signed by Chief of Staff, Julius Debrah said.

Mr Kwarteng has been in the spotlight for taking responsibility for errors in this year’s Independence Day anniversary brochure that was riddled with many factual and grammatical inaccuracies.

The errors in the 30-page document have caused many critics – both home and abroad – to bash government on social media especially.

The mistakes have also gotten many Ghanaians angry and embarrassed. The most affected were staff of ISD who initially was accused of producing the error-ridden brochure.

The government statement Thursday says government’s communication has been restructured, indicating that the Ministry of Communications assumes responsibility for the Flagstaff House Communications Bureau.
