Information Services Officers in the Ashanti region have refuted claims by the Deputy Information Minister, Pius Enam Hadzide, that they have been resourced to embark on public education on the deadly coronavirus.
They said claims by the Minister was palpably false without any iota of truth.
The government, they said has not given them resources to embark on public education on the pandemic.
Addressing the media today, Mr Kusi Oboadum Brobey, Dean of Information Service Department Staff in the region, said they have to fuel their own cars with their money to embark on public education.
He said some of the information service vehicles have broken down without repairs making it difficult for them to embark on public education.
Mr Brobey said the region has 43 Metropolitan, Municipal and District Assemblies but the department has only six (6) vehicles to embark on education.
He, therefore, called on Ghanaians to disregard claims by the Deputy Information Minister since they have not been resourced to embark on public education on the deadly coronavirus.
