Given the high expectations from stakeholders in the cultural and creative sectors, this committee faces the task of devising strategies that will significantly benefit the industry. Additionally, Dr. Mahamadu Bawumia, the NPP’s flagbearer, has pledged to establish digital platforms for Ghanaian artists if elected as President.

The New Patriotic Party (NPP), has come under serious scrutiny by the creative industry stakeholders for reneging on a number of its promises.

Some of the NPP’s unfulfilled promises are the setting up of the Creative Arts Fund to support artists, and the construction of theatres in Kumasi, Takoradi and Tamale.

The NPP also promised that “given that our artistes do not have the capital to set up studios, we will, as part of the entrepreneurial hub’s strategy, establish, in partnership with the private sector, large recording studios in Accra, Kumasi, Tamale and Takoradi. Recording artists can rent space to do the recordings in these studios.” That promise has also not been fulfilled.
