“There is this news all over that we printed the brochure, the ISD was not involved, we don’t know anything about it, no official of the ISD was involved. The apology is misplaced, if we did not print it why must we apologise for it , we don’t know who printed it, in fact we are blind about it,” the worker stated.

It was a display of disappointment when portions of the brochure saw severe misrepresentations regarding Ghana's geographical location and political history.
