In a meeting with President Akufo-Addo at the Jubilee House, Mark Okraku Mante said the creative industry needs aid in charting this motive.

“We are going to move all out within the marketing campaign in opposition to COVID-19. However, one appropriate flip deserves some other. We can’t do it as broke human beings. We ought to stay to assist one another,” he mentioned.

Because of the coronavirus pandemic, there have been several debates on several platforms about the importance of involving celebrities in the campaign against the spread of the virus, which the Information Minister, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah once indicated that the government is ready to collaborate with public figures including celebrities in the campaign against the spread of the virus.

Though one of the sectors which have been affected by the pandemic is the creative industry due to the restriction on mass gatherings and people’s movement leaving most of the stakeholders unemployed.

Mark believes the government can intervene by involving most of the struggling industry players in campaigns in support of the fight against the virus.
