John Dramani Mahama, the leader of the main opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC), has pledged to launch a paid television network devoted to artistic events.

Mr. Mahama pledged this during a meeting and conversation with some of Ghana’s creative industry’s brightest stars in Accra. They talked about the sector’s enormous potential to provide millions of jobs for the country’s young people.

Recognizing that by stabilizing the creative sector, the former president stated “we can unlock countless opportunities for our talented young people.” That is why according to him, if elected President in the December 7 polls, he and his government will be committed to renewing support for the creative arts in the country again and fostering an environment where artists can thrive.

“As part of our plans for the creative arts industry, we intend to set up a paid television channel specifically for creative arts events. We want to provide a platform for our talented artists to showcase their work and reach a wider audience, “he promised.

Furthermore, he claimed to have developed more than 20 policy proposals related to the arts and tourism, some of which included restoring Centers of Arts and Culture, presenting Ghanaian movies at film festivals, and offering tax benefits to artists who had Tax Identification Numbers (TINs).

Mr. Mahama was optimistic that “we can elevate the creative arts industry and empower our youth to pursue their passions while contributing to the growth of our economy” with the correct laws, funding, and assistance.
