The President of the Creative Arts council, Mr. Mark Okraku Mantey, who doubles as the CEO of Slim music, said this morning on Daybreak Hitz, that the promised creative arts high court, is going to see the light of day this year.
He said this morning, during a music discussion on the popular show, daybreak hitz, the work and meetings for the establishment of a division of the high courts to be solely responsible for legal matters pertaining to the creative industries, starts this week.
Mr. Okraku hinted of a meeting between his office and the office of the Attorney general, this morning, to begin processes for the establishment of the court. Asked whether this has anything to do with the proposal presented to the President, HE Nana Addo Danquah Akufo Addo by the Creative arts for change people, Mr. Okraku answered; He added he had no knowledge of the said proposal from the creative arts for change to the President of Ghana.
This comes to us as a surprised because Mr. Okraku is an integral part of the political group. For him not to know anything about the meeting of the group with the President of Ghana, is startling, but we will probe further to understand what is going on with the Creative arts for change group.
The ruling New Patriotic Party said in their manifesto for the 2016 elections, that they would set up a high court division, which will be responsible for creative industries issues. This they believe would help to curb the numerous legal lapses the industry is facing.
The government has come under some amount harsh criticisms from industry players for not being able to establish, the court in their two years of being in power. Many critics believe the establishment of the division of high court for the creative industries is the least of the plethora of promises they had enshrined in their manifesto to do.
