- Stan Dogbe breaks silence on error-ridden brochure
- He has also accused colleague appointee of collaborating with the NPP and journalist to peddle falsehood about him
- Ghana's 59th Independence Day brochure was littered with errors and typos
Embattled presidential staffer, Stan Xoese Dogbe has finally broken his silence on the error-ridden Independence Day brochure brouhaha.
Mr. Dogbe who is the head of communications at the Presidency [Flagstaff House] have been fingered to be part of the Independence Day brochure saga, which embarrassed the nation.
The brochure was characterised by incomprehensible grammatical expressions, poor spelling and a host of other inaccuracies. Among the many mistakes in the brochure was the representaion of Kenyan President, Uhuru Kenyatta, as the President of Ghana.
All of this led to the sacking of the acting Director at the Information Services Department (ISD), Francis Kwarteng Arthur, after he claimed sole responsibility for the typographical, grammatical and factual errors in the brochure.
But Stan Dogbe who is said to be complicit in the saga, on Friday in a statement admitted owning an “EventPR Company” but denied having anything to do with the publishing of the Independence Day brochure.

“…the company [EventPR Company] has never produced any document or publication for the Office of the President.
“Furthermore, the company did not publish, let alone print, the Independence Day brochure,” the statement said.
He also accused a colleague appointee for peddling falsehood about him and his family. Mr. Dogbe said this un-named collegue is conniving with the NPP and journalist to lie about him.
“As we continue on this anti-Stan agenda for whatever reason, let us sit and ponder over our own actions and positive contribution to the Mahama administration and upcoming campaign. Let us ask ourselves whether we are being sincere and committed to the appointing authority. “
“I have not executed any printing, publishing or marketing communications for the OOP using the EventPR,” Stan Dogbe stated.
Read Stan Dogbe's full statement below:
Let's stop the hate!
It is trite knowledge that I was a business owner before entering politics. It is no secret that I run the EventPR Company.
It is a fact that the EventPR published the funeral brochure for my big sisters Hon. Hanna Tetteh and Hon. Elizabeth Ofosu Agyare. With all due respect, is it a sin for EventPR to do business because of my links with the company?
For a colleague appointee to carry copies of the two brochures to prove to people including NPP friends that my wife's company published the Independence Day Brochure is disgustingly low. It is sheer wickedness.
The EventPR undoubtedly has one of the best concept, design and publishing teams in the country, but the company has never produced any document or publication for the Office of the President.
Furthermore, the company did not publish, let alone print, the Independence Day brochure.
As we continue on this anti-Stan agenda for whatever reason, let us sit and ponder over our own actions and positive contribution to the Mahama administration and upcoming campaign. Let us ask ourselves whether we are being sincere and committed to the appointing authority.
I have not executed any printing, publishing or marketing communications for the OOP using the EventPR.
I have brought and will continue to bring my enormous communications experience, protocol and event management expertise, branding finesse, political strategy and execution capabalities to the benefit of President Mahama and the Govt of Ghana because they are my employers.
Some may have their own reasons for conniving with journalists and NPP elements to lie about me and build disaffection for me, but we must all remember that we are mere mortals.
While you are at it, kindly leave my wife and my sister out of this Hatred-for-Stan campaign.
Kindly bear in mind that turning me over to your paid media hire-lings will NOT win us the elections.
