Some people in the tourism and creative space have started pushing an agenda of who they want to see as Ministers of the Tourism, Arts and Culture sectors in Nana Addo’s next government.
The ministry which was first created by former President John Mahama in 2013, had Elizabeth Ofosu Agyare and Dzifa Abla Gomashie as the Minister and Deputy respectively.
When Nana Addo took over the reins of government in 2017, he appointed Catherine Afeku as a minister and Dr. Ziblim Iddi as deputy.
In 2019, Catherine Afeku was replaced by Barbara Oteng Gyasi.
With Nana Addo starting his second term in government, it is expected that he would make some changes in these appointed.
For some people in the creative sector, these are some of the people who should be considered for the positions:
Bice ‘Obour’ Osei Kuffour – former President of the Musicians Union of Ghana (MUSIGA) and 2020 NPP parliamentary aspirant at the Asante Akyem South constituency.
Catherine Ablema Afeku – former Minister of Tourism, Arts and Culture
Akwasi Agyemang – Chief Executive Office of the Ghana Tourism Authority
Mark Okraku-Mantey – Music producer and President of the Creative Arts Council
Juliet Asante – Filmmaker and Executive Secretary of the National Film Authority
Kojo Frimpong – broadcast journalist
Kwabena Okyere Darko – Member of Parliament for the Takoradi constituency
James Korsah Brown – talent manager and 2020 NPP parliamentary aspirant for Mfantseman Constituency.
Which these people would be given the opportunity to serve the tourism, arts, and culture sectors as minister(s)?
