The Ministry of Tourism, Culture and Creative Arts is set to launch a new project called ‘SEE GHANA, EAT GHANA, WEAR GHANA’ come July, 2017.
The objective of the project is to increase the sales and use of Made-in-Ghana goods and services and also identify ways of packaging them for the foreign market. The project also concentrates on how to package and promote Ghanaian dishes, attire and tourist sites.
Though some have lauded the Tourism Minister, Hon. Catherine Afeku and her team for such an amazeball initiative, reggae and root music legend, Ekow Micah, sees sheer hypocrisy in the sector minister’s move – because, it contradicts her fashion sense or lifestyle.
“…….Appearance right now addressing the media, you are wearing a Brazilian hair, is that the wear Ghana you are about to launch I feel very sorry for you, and your team…..” Ekow Micah picked on the Minister.
Resorting to his official Facebook wall, Ekow Micah sent an open letter to Hon. Catherine Afeku:
“Greetings with love, harmony and respect. Humbly spare me a little bit of your time, on this serious issue. I seriously think that it’s about time we people of the world realize that politics have nothing to offer any of the nations, or our world, than to rub, destroy, and constantly create bedding on humanitarian.
“Yesterday in my country Ghana, did I heard the hon. minister of Tourism, Creative and culture saying, that she and her ministry, are about to launch a project, called SEE GHANA, EAT GHANA , WEAR GHANA.
“My question is directly to you Hon. Minister and your administration on behalf of my Ghanaians, and the world at large, is it a political culture or our true origins, let me tell you what, there is no more space for your support to help keep Africans deep in their mental slavery for your political interest but not for a national interest.
“Madam minister, did I heard you saying your project about to lunch in coming July 2017, is called SEE GHANA, EAT GHANA, AND WEAR GHANA, but humbly honorable in your appearance right now addressing the media, you are wearing a Brazilian hair, is that the wear Ghana you are about to launch I feel very sorry for you, and your team.
“In this world, future, will judge all of us, what Ghana needs now, is to be free mentally first, before your so call economic political freedom. Remember, the bible said, seek he the kingdom of God and his righteousness, and any other things, shall be added.
“Feel no way about the truth, it’s only a humble advice, but remember, all efforts, will be in vain without a national interest. Thanks for having time to read like and share your thoughts on this. Humbly have a great day in peace and love.”
