According to him, workers of the Ministry also alleged that zero investment was done since the Creative Arts was added to the Tourism Ministry.
“In 2017 we met the Tourism Minister, Elizabeth Ofosu Adjare to find out what they left behind in terms of monies, investments and after an hour of talks, nothing was mentioned about the Creative Arts.
“So I took time to find out why and her team told us that since the addition of creative arts to the Ministry, they have not made any investment,” he said
Speaking at the CreativeArts4More campaign at the Accra Tourism Information Center on Wednesday, Mark Okraku Mantey disclosed that his team had to start from scratch.
“Indirectly, this government inherited zero note for the creative arts so we are starting afresh,” he said.
