The Acting Executive Secretary of the NIA has sacked a staff of the authority for his constant criticism of the government on social media platforms.

A letter signed by the National Identification Authority (NIA) boss Prof. Kenneth Agyemang Attafuah addressed to the IT specialist Wisdom Kwaku Deku, instructed him to vacate his post and hand over all documents in his position to the Acting Head of the Technology and Biometrics Department.

"I write to inform you that the National Identification Authority (NIA) has decided to terminate your employment with immediate effect. You are entitled to one (1) month’s salary in lieu of notice as stipulated in the letter confirming your employment." He stated.

The letter further reminded him to abide by the oath of secrecy in the organization and not reveal any information he may be privy to by virtue of his position in the organization to the general public.

"Please refer to the Oath of Secrecy on Taking Office, and be reminded that you are not permitted to directly or indirectly, without due authority disclose or make known any matter or information acquired by you in the course of your employment with the NIA.” He added.

No reasons were given for sacking the IT specialist at the NIA but many have linked it to Mr. Wisdom Kwaku Deku’s constant criticism of the government on his Facebook wall. News
