Our Manifesto: This is what YEN.com.gh believes in
The NPP government revealed in its manifesto for election 2020 it will build modern theatres, recording studios in Accra, Kumasi, Tamale, and other parts of the country to bring the much-needed facelift and growth to the Creative Arts Industry.
Kiki Banson spoke briefly during an interview on GHOne television regarding the aforementioned promise by the NPP government, where he was quick to point out some of the successful records and why he believes the NPP needs another term to continue and finish most of the projects.
‘’I think their (NPP government) promises are achievable and well thought through, and if I'm to go by anything they have promised, in my view, looking at what they have done in other sectors, I'm inclined without a doubt that they will continue to go ahead and carry it out’,’ he said when asked about his thought on the newly launched manifesto by the NPP.
Mr. Banson added that most of the things that are mentioned might take more than four years to accomplish, citing the construction of the National Theatre as an example.
According to him, a lot of time was taken in the planning stage before the construction of the facility begun. Hence, the delay in the execution of some of the promises doesn’t mean they can’t be done.
He further endorsed the idea of the NPP to build recording studios for the private sector across the country to support the activities of the creative industry, adding that he doesn’t think the NPP government is specifically targeting the creative arts industry just to win votes.
