Information Minister-designate Kojo Oppong Nkrumah says public education campaigns had suffered woefully before the New Patriotic Party (NPP) took over the office in 2017.
He said this happened because the Information Services Department was woefully under-resourced.
He told Parliament’s Vetting Committee that the current ISD saw improvement and growth by 27%.
He disclosed that when the NPP took over, there were about 721 staff, but the number has increased to 987, provided laptop computers across, adding they have not completed the logistical support, but there has been an improvement in what they came to inherit.
He added that the government has created the ITI Division with several persons deployed as information officers to agencies, ministries and departments.
