The website of the Government of Ghana, www.ghana.gov.gh has been hacked.
This was confirmed by a Deputy Minister of Communications, Ato Sarpong, on the Citi Breakfast Show on Wednesday.
According to the Minister, government technicians are devising measures to restore the site.
“To an extent yes. I have made the relevant calls, and we are working on it to restore the site in just a couple of hours,” he said.
He was unable to tell the source of the hack, but assured that it will be investigated and the website will be restored soon.
“I’m unable to say the cause of the hack at this moment, but when you go on the site, you will see that its been hacked. It will take you to a different place.”
In 2012, the Ministry of Justice and Attorney General’s Department’s website – www.Mojag.gov.gh was also hijacked by hackers sympathetic to Argentina, which had its military vessels, the Libertad Frigate “seized” by a Ghanaian court.
