Agya-Koo3The President has promised to build ultra-modern theatres in the capitals of the Northern, Ashanti and Western regions.

Nana Akufo-Addo says the theatres will form part is government’s commitment to boost the potential of the creative arts industry.

“We are committed to building multi-purpose theaters in Takoradi, Kumasi and Tamale. It is sad that it has taken this long, but we should make good this serious omission in our artistic and cultural infrastructure,” the president said.

He was speaking at the 10th Anniversary of Ghana International School’s annual Drama night.

The President bemoaned the seeming neglect of the book industry in the country.

He also expressed worry that most books on Ghana’s history and culture were published overseas rather than in the country. He has however pledged government’s commitment to support local authorship.

“My government has put in place plans to promote the literary arts, by encouraging our writers and publishers to produce books that portray are rich culture.

“Today, the most beautiful books on Ghana’s culture are predominantly written by foreigners or published abroad. We intend to support the book industry and promote local authorship.”

“The music industry is going to be given a boost to meet its potential. We’ll source support and enforce priority piracy law for the industry to promote our musicians,” he said.
