Creative sector has much to offer if given the needed attention –Ebo Whyte

James Ebo Whyte, popularly known as Uncle Ebo Whyte, a renowned Playwright has asked the government not to abandon the creative industry.

On Joy TV, which was monitored by The Chronicle, he stated that the creative sector has a lot to offer the economy if it is offered the needed support.

In his submissions on the show, he said that should the creative industry be given maximum attention and lift as the other institutions, no sector can compete with it.

“We are not interested in growing anything in this country, but I can tell anyone who cares to listen, that nothing will compare to the creative industry if we are given the right attention. Nothing, no sector, not cocoa, not gold, not oil, nothing,” he said.

Also speaking to the current development of the country, the playwright in comparison said Ghana’s economy is been run like a teenager.

“We are not neat, teenagers will not clean their rooms. We think we know, so we are too known, we are lazy we would rather sleep and have fun than anything else. We do not want to do the work of the mind and that is Ghana for you,” he said.

Uncle Ebo Whyte noted that although the country is past 60 years, its civilization to other countries in comparison, Ghana is still young and needs to double up the pace to build a face-front nation.

This he explains as being evident in the governance of the country.
