(Video) Minister Explains Why Gov’t Chose To Rehabilitate Cultural Centres In Kumasi And Koforidua

Honourable Barbara Oteng Gyasi, Sector minister for the Ministry of Tourism, Arts and Culture (MOTAC) Ghana, has laid to rest inconsistencies in government’s position on the construction of ultra-modern theatres in the Ashanti Regional capital, Kumasi and Koforidua.

Addressing the press in Kumasi after the signing of an MOU with a Chinese company for the construction of a Conference Center Project,  Honourable Barbara Oteng Gyasi stated that the Government of Ghana chose to renovate the existing cultural centres in the interim so they could make enough room to seek for investors in the construction of the promised theatres.

“Whilst  working on securing investors for the construction of  the theatres in Kumasi, Koforidua and Nothern part of Ghana,  we realized our existing cultural centres  were in a bad state  so we thought it wise to rehabilitate those ones ”

As part of announcing Government’s achievements, Vice President, Dr Mahamadu Bawumia in a recent town hall meeting stated hinted there was a construction of an ultra-modern theatre in Kumasi sparking a lot of fury from players in the region.
