Sadiq Abdulai pushes for Mark Okraku Mantey as Deputy Minister of Tourism

VGMA new theme song below standard - Mark Okraku Mantey.

Chief Executive Officer (C.E.O) of 3Music Awards, Sadiq Abdulai has urged His Excellency Nana Akufo-Addo to consider choosing the President of the Creative Arts Council, Mark Okraku Mantey as the deputy Minister of Tourism. 

Yesterday, the Communication’s Directorate of the Jubilee House, through the President,  submitted a list of 27 names to be approved by Parliament as Ministers for his new government.

Former CEO of Graphic Communications Group, Dr Ibrahim Mohammed Awal, was named as Minister Designate for Tourism, Creative Arts and Culture.

Reacting to the news in an interview with GhanaWeb, Mr Abdulai reiterated that it was important for Akufo-Addo to nominate Mark Okraku Mantey as Deputy Tourism Minister.

“The deputy ministerial role may go to somebody like Mark Okraku Mantey for instance who also has a certain proven track record working in the industry…this is a proposal or designate for the ministry to see how he will bring his A-game on,” he stressed.

Reacting to Dr Awal’s appointment, Mr Abdulai noted;

“Mohammed Awal is actually someone from a space that also is part of what you probably call the creative industry which connects to tourism. I think that it is a good call however, one of the things that have been a concern to a lot of people is whether he brings on board any massive achievement in the Business Development Ministry. That is anything to regain the sector confidence because the Business Development ministry was that successful. It follows the logic that the president perhaps may have kept it instead of scrapped it.
