Minister Calls On MUSIGA To Account For GH¢2M


The Deputy Minister for the Ministry of Tourism, Culture and Creative Arts, Madam Dzifa Gomashie, revealed on Radio XYZ’s entertainment programme that government has not released its budgeted allocation to the creative art sector or industry.

The Ministry of Tourism, Culture and Creative Arts, according to what the media learnt from its PRO, Mr. Prince Boakye Boateng, last year, is that, any money for the creative art industry released from the Ministry of Finance and Economic Planning, shall be released into the ministry’s account for disbursal.

On Saturday 22nd March, 2014 edition of Celebrity XYZ on Radio XYZ, Madam Dzifa Gomashie, the Deputy Minister for the Ministry of Tourism, Culture and Creative Arts, was asked if the government had released its budget allocation to the creative art industry.

“No, as we speak, government has not released the money to the ministry for the creative art sector” Madam Gomashie said. When asked how the GHC 2M the government budgeted for the creative art industry in its 2012 fiscal budget was used, she said “well, I can’t say much about that money, because I or my minister Mrs. Elizabeth Ofosu-Agyare, were not in office. There’s not much I can say about that.

I recall it was MUSIGA that received it so if anything, MUSIGA, Obour and his team are the best people to answer this question. They should account for that money. So I suppose I’m not the one to say if I have anything concretely to share with you.”

For the first time in many uncountable years, the creative industry was duly recognized by the Government of Ghana with the budgetary allocation of GHC2million to the sector, but the anticipated merry-making, rather turned into bickering, finger-pointing, accusation and counter-accusation over which group has the right to lay claim to the money.
