The NPP has failed us - Sadiq Abu
Spokesperson for Creative arts, Sadiq Abu, maintains that the NPP has failed Ghanaians in the creative arts sector
Sadiq Abu, an appointed spokesperson in charge of the manifesto of the Creative Arts sector for the National Democratic Congress (NDC) has claimed that the sector has been overwhelmingly sidelined by the Nana Addo-led New Patriotic Party (NPP) government.
He stated this in an interview on Y 97.9 FM with McCall Mensah aka the Axeman on ‘Y Entertainment Podium’.
According to him, despite being a potential source of employment generation, wealth creation, and skill development in the country, the government has consistently failed the creative arts sector due to its inability to manage the resources well.
"The lack of commitment and the lack of willpower to implement the eighteen (18) promises made by the NPP government to the creative industry is appalling and mediocre. The Creative Arts industry is very important to the economy and employs more young people."
"The Creative Arts Industry is made up of sectors like advertising; architecture; crafts; design; dressmaking; fashion; film and video; interactive leisure software; music; the performing arts; publishing; television and radio,"
The spokesman then proceeded to highlight the innovations behind the NDC's plans for the creative industry.
"After listening to the concerns of the industry players, the leadership of the NDC identified seventeen (17) ways to address these concerns. We are going to fund creative arts institutions, resolve copyright issues, pass the creative arts bill among many others," he stated.
