Communication Analyst at Presidency suspended over unsavory ‘footsoldier’ remark

Policy and Communications Analyst at the Presidency, Dr. Louise Carol Serwaa Donkor, has been suspended.

It follows comments made by Dr. Donkor which the Chief of Staff, Akosua Frema Osei-Opare described as disparaging to a “section of the Ghanaian society, a conduct which is unacceptable to this Office.”

Dr. Donkor, a Founding Director of Aya Institute for Women, Politics and Media – a research and training institute for gender equality, incurred the wrath of the governing New Patriotic Party grassroot supporters known commonly as ‘footsoldiers’

She wrote in response to a post on Facebook, about her difficulty in dealing with footsoldiers. “You shouldn’t. You can’t reason with them. It’s like tribalist”, she wrote on June 7.

An apology in another post on her Facebook wall a couple of days later, appear not satisfactory enough.

A letter signed Tuesday by Chief of Staff, directed the Special Advisor to the President on SDGs, Eugene Owusu to suspend Dr. Donkor for a period of 30 days effective July 13, 2018.

The letter further directed Dr. Donkor to “render in writing, and an unconditional apology and commit to good behavior.”
