Employees of the Information Services Department (ISD) have petitioned President John Mahama to sack their acting Director, Francis Kwarteng Arthur.

This follows the public uproar over the many factual and grammatical errors in the brochure for Ghana’s 59th Independence Anniversary parade. On Tuesday, the staff were up in arms over a statement Mr Kwarteng Arthur issued, accepting responsibility for the errors, on behalf of the ISD. 

The workers said as far as they were concerned, the department was not involved in any way with the publication of the brochures.

They have subsequently written to the President to remove him from his position.

The employees in their petition argued that the Department would have saved government and Ghanaians from the embarrassment if had been involved in the process of the production of the brochure.

“It is important to note that ISD has competent human resources who over the years handled national events with competence to the pride of all. If the Department had been involved in the process of the production of the brochure, it would have saved the government and the people of Ghana from the embarrassment.”

They further accused their director of disrespecting both management and employees of the ISD.

“Since Mr. Arthur’s appointment to ISD, his style of administration has been autocratic and has shown gross disrespect to both management and other staff members of the Department.”
