A presidential staffer at the Office of the President, Flagstaff House, Louise Carol Serwaa Donkor has been suspended over denigrating comments she passed on a post about the ruling party’s footsoldiers.
Ms Donkor, who is the number 114 on the list of 998 is, in addition to her presidential staffer role, a leading member of controversial feminist group PepperDem.
She wrote in response to a post about not dealing with footsoldiers as a principle: “You shouldn’t”, she encouraged her friend who posted it. “You can’t reason with them (footsoldiers).”
“It’s like tribalist”, she added.
She has also been directed by the Chief of Staff Akosua Frema Opare to apologise for the comment.
Even though she has apologized over the comment, a statement from the Presidency Tuesday said “These comment sought to disparage a section of the Ghanaian society, a conduct which is unacceptable to this office. Consequently, you are directed to suspend Dr. Donkor from office for a period of 30 days beginning the 13th day of June 2018.
“Further, she is required to render in writing an unconditional apology and commit to good behavior”.
This comes after several campaign to get her sacked from the office began on social media.
