Sadiq Abdulai Abu, a spokesperson for the NDC on Creative Arts has described NPP government’s performance in the sector as appalling and mediocre.
He believes they lacked the commitment and willpower to implement their promises.
Sadiq made this assertion when commenting on what the next NDC government intends to do in the Creative Arts Industry.
“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,” he said in an interview with McCall Mensah aka the Axeman on Y 97.9 FM.
“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 NDC spokesperson explained.
Talking about his party’s plans for the Creative Art Sector, Sadiq said: “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.”
