David Asante said his institution
was on life-support and could barely generate enough revenue to sustain its operations

Speaking on Asempa FM’s Ekosii Sen programme Tuesday, he claimed Ghana Publishing is now a competitive and profit-making agency.

“The President sent me there to turn the institution around and I have distinguished myself as a good and faithful servant,” Mr Asante said.

Highlighting among other things some innovative things his outfit is doing in order to bring more visibility and exposure to the company, Mr Asante was confident the state-owned company would stay relevant and competitive despite the rather challenging business atmosphere it finds itself in.
