Foundation of Concerned Arts Professionals (FOCAP) an advocacy and pressure group in the creative arts industry will like to show our appreciation to the President for Choosing Dr. Mohammed Awal as the Minister for Tourism and Creative Arts especially due to his background in Business and Marketing which is a vital ingredient for the Sector to succeed.
FOCAP furthermore and respectfully calls on President Nana Akufo-Addo to once again nominate a competent deputy minister to compliment him and build a vibrant arts industry.
What FOCAP is seeking from the President is to appoint a competent deputy minister who has the technical know-how in the creative business and committed to the industry with good relationship and dedication to the sector, someone with great leadership qualities who has been tried and tested.
FOCAP is of the view that the Ministry should be devoid of a vindictive leader but rather a unifier who will create space and avenue for unity, togetherness and all-inclusiveness that will rally the creative arts industry to soldier on.
FOCAP is urging the President to kindly look into making a good decision with COMPETENCE as the hallmark.
We also ask the advisors of Mr President to help him make the right appointment devoid of their personal interests and tribal affiliations.
