Chief of Staff, Julius Debrah, is sitting on the case in which a presidential staffer, Stan Dogbe, is alleged to have assaulted a Journalist working with state broadcaster, GBC.
Abraham Amaliba, a member of the Party’s legal team told local television network TV3 Wednesday that the move is to reassure the general public that the presidency is not for unruly people.
Dogbe’s act he said, could bring the name of the presidency into disrepute. A meeting he hinted was going to be held today to speak to the issue.
Dogbe has been criticized widely for an act many thought was avoidable. The Media Foundation for West Africa has called on the presidency to punish him.
The journalist, Yahaya Kwamoah of GBC Radio had gone to the 37 Military Hospital on August 20 to report on an accident which killed Ghanaian Times presidential reporter Samuel Nuamah.
He was said to be eavesdropping on a conversation between Dogbe and Communications Minister, Omane Boamah. The former subsequently took his recorder and smashed it.
Kwamoah has so far not commented on the issue because of a directive from the state broadcaster.
