Deputy Minister of Information, Samuel Okudjeto Ablakwa has called for the arrest of the copyright official Nana Bosomprah who registered the National Democratic Congress’ logo in the name of the former first lady, Nana Konadu Agyemang Rawlings.
Nana Bosomprah has confirmed claims by the former first lady on the ownership of the NDC logo saying there is no doubt the logo belongs to Nana Konadu since she registered it in her name with no sponsorship from anyone.
Samuel Okudjeto Ablakwa says that he is surprised that former administrator at the copyright office is still walking as a free man and wonders why the security agencies have not picked him up because according to him, he(Nana Bosomprah) has serious questions to answer.
Speaking on Radio Gold’s Alhaji and Alhaji on Saturday,the deputy minister expressed worry over why Nana Bosomprah should register a recognized party’s logo without consulting party executives.
“You have been called upon to register the emblem of a political party which has existed since 1992, with known operatives, known national executive members and you could not write to the general secretary of the party or the chairman of the party to find out that there is a demand or a claim for the emblem of the party. So you want to find out if there is any objection”.
He also added that the actions of Nana Bosomprah has implications for the country.
“Everybody in our country will not be feeling safe by this act especially if you run an organization when anybody could walk to the copyright office and register your symbol because you claim the symbol belongs to you’’.
He charged public officers to be responsible, to be fair and carry out their duties in manners that do not create chaos.
