Ghanaian filmmaker, Socrate Safo, has stated that Ex-President John Mahama did nothing for the creative arts industry during his time.

Scocrate, who is the Director for Creative Arts at the National Commission on Culture (NCC), made this statement on UTV’s United Showbiz program.

He claimed there were setbacks in the sector when Mr Mahama was in power.

However, Socrate Safo argued that the NPP government led by President Akufo-Addo has supported the sector very well.

“The industry suffered numerous disappointments during the NDC’s era because we witnessed John Mahama’s five-year tenure where nothing was achieved until this current government came into power,” he stated.

According to him, ongoing projects such as new theatres and the building of a creative arts school in Kumasi are evidence of the NPP government’s commitment.

“We’ve witnessed substantial growth in the industry; this government genuinely cares about it. They don’t operate in secrecy, favoring select individuals. Instead, their actions have a broad impact on the entire sector,” he said.

Socrate Safo maintained that the passage of the Creative Arts Bill and the establishment of a film authority attest to how supportive the NPP government has been to the creative arts sector.

His statement was disagreed by some of the panel members on the show.
