The Minister for Tourism and Creative Arts, Madam Catherine Afeku talks about Kumawood. Moreover, she assures the Kumasi entertainment industry that the president of the republic, H.E Akuffo-Addo has not forsaken them. This is contrary to the claims of many people in the media space.
According to her, they want to make the industry attractive for both local and foreign investors. However, many people in Kumawood constantly chastise the ministry for neglecting them.
Furthermore, according to them, the promise of an ultra-modern theater, has not seen the light of day. This is ever since they took the helms of affairs in the country.
The minister gave this assurance in a Facebook post
Check out the full post of the minister below:
“Yesterday, Bill Asamoah was at my office to pick up his appointment letter as a Tourism Ambassador for Ghana.
This appointment was after KUMAWOOD unanimously nominated him to be appointed as an ambassador after many months of deliberation.
Speaking with Bill, he revealed he was going to ensure the promotion of Ghana to the world through quality movies, and enhance the business aspect of film making to attract investors. He also intends to promote Government policies and agenda through Ghanaian films.
I also used the opportunity to inform him that, the Nana Addo led government has not neglected the people of Kumasi in terms of Tourism, Arts and Culture development as some media reports suggest, but instead we are trying our very best to make the industry attractive for both local and foreign investors to want to invest.
