As Expected, Ghana President Fires Communication Director Over Speech Plagiarism


The news of Ghana President's inauguration speech Plagiarism hit hard on air two days ago and as expected, Ghana president, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has fired his Communications Director apparently, for plagiarism of his inaugural speech and for causing great international embarrassment to the new Head of State.

The videos showing President Addo delivering his inaugural speech now discovered to be a work of Plagiarism from two USA past Presidents, President George W. Bush and President Bill Clinton went viral hence sparking the sack of the Communications Director, Eugene Arhin.

The inauguration speech has become a mockery in media jokes and split screens have been made showing same and many was infact wondering why an accomplished scholar and season Lawyer like Nana Addo will resort to indignity over his inaugural speech and why he didn't read and made comparison on the speech before using it on his first day. The question, unquestionably goes to the Communication Director who who is supposed to make sure such a thing doesn't happen.

Earlier Eugene Arhin, Communications Director at Golden Jubilee House issued a statement on his Facebook page attempting to pass off the plagiarism as a mere case of lack of referencing and attribution. He wrote: 

“My attention has been drawn to references being made to a statement in the speech delivered by the President of the Republic, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, at his swearing in on Saturday, January 7, 2017, which was not duly acknowledged”.

“I unreservedly apologise for the non-acknowledgement of this quote to the original author. It was a complete oversight, and never deliberate. It is insightful to note that in the same speech were quotes from J.B Danquah, Dr. K.A. Busia, Dr. Kwame Nkrumah and the Bible which were all duly attributed and acknowledged”.
