Directors and Assistant Directors at the Ministry of Post and Telecommunication have denied media reports that they have called for the removal of Dr. Frederick B. Norkeh, Minister of Posts and Telecommunication for alleged corruption and his refusal to give Directors and Assistant Directors gas and scratch cards.
In a press statement issued at the weekend and signed by 31 Directors and Assistant Directors, the employees termed the story in a local daily as "falsehood and malicious".
The Directors and Assistant Directors clarified that at no time did they inform any media institution, neither did they discuss with print or electronic media about the removal of Minister Norkeh.
They called on the public not to give credence to the writer of such malicious story, because according to them, it lacks credibility and misrepresent the facts.
The Directors and Assistant Directors emphasized that no staff of the Ministry talked with the media, but rather the story is an imaginary one sponsored by Minister Norkeh's detractors in the face of the rumor of reshuffling in government.
"By virtue of the foregoing, therefore, we the undersigned Directors and Assistant Directors of the Ministry of Posts and Telecommunications do hereby affix our signatures authenticating our prompt reaction to this story," the employees said in the statement.
