Bureau for Internal Affairs (BIA), an anti-corruption organisation, is calling on the authorities to ban and arrest those who fabricate, print and sell offensive ted materials including calendars about political leaders.

A statement issued by Godfred Nkrumah, Coordinating Director of BIA said for the sake of national security these materials should be denied circulation and sales since people would take advantage of the election petition at the Supreme Court to come out with such offensive products.

“This has become a matter of great concern to BIA because the practice had gone on for years, immediately after a general election or a major event had taken place in the country.

“Interestingly the whereabouts of the printers of these calendars and products, which are usually sold in traffic lights and major roads in the country, cannot be traced. The ban should take place before the August 29  verdict of the Supreme Court filed by the main opposition New Patriotic Party against the ruling National Democratic Congress,” the statement said.

BIA is appealing to the security agencies particularly the Ghana Police Service and National Security to arrest any individual who attempts to disrupt the peace and harmony of the country after the election petition.

The BIA is a centre for information gathering on public concerns with the aim of bridging the communication gap between the public and the authorities on issues negatively affecting the nation.
