Director of Communications at the Presidency Stan Dogbe has been relieved of his duties by President Mahama with the current Communications Minister, Dr Omane Boamah taking over with immediate effect.

The decision by the president was made known in a statement issued and signed by the Chief of Staff, Mr Julius Debrah, which orders that the Ministry of Communications now assumes responsibility for the Flagstaff House Communications Bureau.

The drastic measure by President Mahama follows  come concerns raised by workers of the Information Service Department (ISD) against Mr Dogbe which shows that he (Stan Dogbe) has taken over their jobs following the 59 Independence Day Celebration brochure gaffe.

“…since Stan Dogbe assumed his current position as a presidential staffer at the Office of the President, the work of ISD in relation to the national event has stalled. The core mandate has since been handled by Mr Dogbe ever since,” the aggrieved workers stated.

Also, the embattled Presidential Staffer has also suffered massive criticisms from journalists and the Ghana Journalists Association (GJA) after he physically attacked a reporter (crashing his recorder to the ground) during a press event involving the president - a development which say the GJA file a petition to the seat of government demanding the removal of the ''arrogant'' presidential staffer.
