RETRACTION OF STORY: “12 MILLION DOLLARS TO BE SPENT ON STRANDED GHANAIANS IN BARBADOS'
The Ministry of Information and National Orientation wishes to retract a Ghana News Agency (GNA) news item headlined: “12 Million Dollars to Be Spent on Stranded Ghanaians in Barbados” posted on April 1, 2008 on the Ghana Government Website www.ghana.gov.gh in Accra.
The Ministry's attention has been drawn to the fact that the amount quoted by the GNA reporter in the story was wrong. The correct amount should have read $250.000 instead.
The Ministry therefore retracts the said story immediately and wishes to render an unqualified apology for any inconvenience caused by the error.
