Ghanaian broadcaster, Tourism practitioner and former Tourism Ambassador, Gilbert Aggrey well-known as Abeiku Santana has as part of efforts to celebrate Ghana’s fashion and the many potentials of the fashion industry rallied support for the Wear Ghana Month initiative by the Tourism Ministry of Ghana.
This comes days ahead of Ghana’s 61st Independence anniversary.
Speaking exclusively to Ghana’s Hub For Pop Culture & Urban Entertainment News – www.nydjlive.com, the CEO of Kaya Tours, Abeiku Santana said the call to celebrate and wear Ghana was plausible hence his interest in supporting which ever possible.
” I am throwing my weight behind the campaign and initiative for Ghanaians to patronise made in Ghana goods and services or products, from food to clothing to music, movies and to anything produced in Ghana. Let’s make the whole month of March one that we celebrate Ghanaian achievers in all field of endeavours.
“For example if the TV stations can start showing Inspector Bediako, Thursday Theatre, Osofo Dadzie, Akan Drama, Things We Do For Love, By The Fireside, it will be of great help. Let our various homes also resort to our very local foods like Banku, Tuo Zafi, Fufu, Gari, Yam etc at least for the month of March and the results will be astonishingly incredible.
If we all support this initiative for at least the month of March, this is going to help Ghana’s economy and trickle down to the average Ghanaian.”
Abeiku Santana called on various leaders and influencers in the country to support the initiative by the Ministry.
I’m calling on all TV stations, radio stations, politicians, opinion leaders, religious leaders to come together and celebrate Ghana. Let’s not forget the month of March means so much for Ghana; the very month Dr. Kwame Nkrumah made the popular declaration that the Blackman is capable of managing its own affairs so let’s support and celebrate Ghanaian achievers this month.”
Abeiku Santana together with his company Kaya Tours has over the past years spearheaded and promoted tourism oriented programs in and outside the country.
Wear Ghana Month is an initiative of the National Commission on Culture in partnership with Street Fashion Train.
