    “Disgusted” and “disappointed” were just a couple of the words thrown around by an entertainment industry in the Upper East Region describing the action of President Akuffo Addo and the team during his tour of the Upper East Region.

    The Upper East Regional Film Makers Association were amazed and bemused after they were allegedly snubbed by President Nana Addo Dankwa Akuffo Addo after an arrangement was reached and concluded to meet him. The President was said to have been bluntly prevented from addressing them in the presence of other members alleging that government was not interested in what they were exhibiting.
    This took place at the forecourt of the Regional office the Ghana Broadcasting Corporation (GBC URA Radio) in Bolgatanga.


    The President on Thursday had a radio interview at GBC URA Radio before he could proceed to meet the Regional House of Chiefs. The group took that opportunity to meet the President at the GBC yard after the radio interview. However, their dreams of a good meeting with the President was shut. When the President came out from the studios, he waved at them, walked towards them but returned to his vehicle and left.
    “We came here to meet the President. We had an arrangement with the Party executives including the Chairman and the Regional Minister. We started this preparation three weeks back only to be treated this way today. In fact, we are disgusted and disappointed at the moment. The President just walked away without a minute to spare and listen to what we have for him.” Aminu Inusah lamented.


    The National founder of Film Makers for Nana, Richard Boateng expressed worry over what he described as a “jiggling and murmuring” moment for members in the industry as they walked home unhappy. He further expressed worry over the fact that, “ the Upper East Regional members of the Film Makers Association invited me, booked a hotel for me, hired this stage mounted and spent money for event organizers to make this place beautiful only for us to be ignored.” Mr. Boateng wept.


    But speaking to the Regional Communications Director of NPP, Mr. Sanusi Issah said the initial arrangement was to meet the group at St. John’s Park in Bolgatanga. He added that the arrangement they made at the GBC yard was somewhat an ambush according to their itinerary thus the President’s inability to address them.
