The Ministry of Tourism, Arts and Culture has denied some reports that stated that Gyankroma Akufo Addo, a daughter of the president of Ghana, has left the Creative Arts Council.
According to the reports, Gyankroma was no longer at post as the Director of Creative Arts.
“…This is a blatant lie in the highest order and in any case, if the allegation were anything to go by, the Ministry would take punitive measures to address the issue head-on, rather than sitting on it,” The ministry said in a statement.
“As you may be aware, the Creative Arts sector covers a broader area, and apart from the predominant ones like the music, theatre arts, drama and fashion, Ms Gyankroma is working very hard to revive the lesser known creative art areas such as painting, drawing, poetry, beads manufacturing, textile designs, among several others. If for nothing at all, her efforts need to be recommended rather than having her name dragged in the mud.”
In March 2017, the sector minister, Catherine Afeku inaugurated the Creative Arts Council which was headed by Mark Okraku Mantey. Bibi Bright was the also appointed the secretary of the council.
