Gov't criticised for error-ridden Independence Day brochure

Organisers of the 59th Independence Celebration are being criticized for the grammatical, typographical and factual mistakes found in the official Independence brochure.
Tourism advocate, Pa John Bentsifi Dadson, says the errors in the official brochure of the 59th Independence Celebration are embarrassing and calls for answers.
During and after the colourful event, social media is trending with the errors in the brochure, one of which referred to Uhuru Kenyata as the President of Ghana amongst other errors.

It is not clear who was contracted to prepare the text and print the brochure.
Speaking on JOY FM’s Super Morning Show, Dadson has described the situation as unacceptable.
Another incident that took the shine away from the independence event was the decision to pack some journalists in a tipper truck to cover the event.
Three years ago, some journalists were beaten by soldiers at the Independence parade for trespassing.
For security reasons, movement on the event grounds is restricted, but the decision to use a tipper truck belonging to National Disaster Management Organization (NADMO) to carry journalists around the event grounds has been widely criticized.
