Though an apology has been rendered by the Department in a statement issued by Acting Director Francis Kwarteng Arthur, staff say they want to let Ghanaians know that they were not responsible for this year’s brochures.
“We have been printing it since time immemorial but this year’s one we did not print it,” a worker told TV3’s Daniel Lartey on Tuesday, March 8.
The brochures were strewn with factual and grammatical errors most conspicuously being the designation of Kenya's Uhuru Kenyatta, who was the Special Guest, as the President of the Republic of Ghana.
Many Ghanaians have called for the head of those responsible for the embarassment and blame is being directed at the Department.
The member of staff debunked reports that his colleagues seethed with anger at the meeting.
“Not that we are angry but we are confused.”
