However, Communications Minister, Dr Omane Boamah has described the news as "false".

He dismissed the statement in an sms message to Peacefmonline.com.

In a related development, a statement on Flagstaff House Facebook Wall is asking the public to disregard the information currently trending on social media.

Below is a reproduction of the post on the seat of government's social media page.

Good morning.

Kindly ignore a list of new 'appointments' making the rounds via WhatsApp platforms. The Office of the President has issued no such statement. All official statements are first issued via the official email address and posted on the Flagstaff House Facebook Page.
