“Mr. President, you still haven’t constructed the regional theaters you promised Ghanaians” — Clemento Suarez

Clemento Suarez, a comedian from Ghana, voiced dismay over the government’s failure to make good on its pledge to construct regional theaters all around the nation.

Prior to the 2016 and 2020 elections, the incumbent New Patriotic Party (NPP) promised to establish national theaters in each of the country’s 16 regions to support the development of the creative industries and to produce a respectable level of revenue for the nation.

The award-winning comedian has urged the administration to review its commitment and keep it after five years in office because it has made no attempt to start the project.

In an interview with the Accra-based Graphic Showbiz, Suarez revealed that such a promise was a major reason most industry players supported and campaigned for Akufo-Addo to become President.

“The President pledged to build regional theaters in the NPP’s 2016 and 2020 manifestos, but there has been no performance to date. We are waiting, Mr. President, Mr. President,” he lamented.

In Ghana, comedian Clemento Suarez stated his two biggest achievements were winning an Emmy Award over well-known performers like Sarkodie and Stonebwoy and aiding in the careers of up-and-coming entertainers.

“I was in the same category with Sarkodie and Stonebwoy so for me to come up tops, I was very happy. Aside from awards, my biggest achievement is my ability to pave way for my juniors to make a living out of stage acting and comedy. To see people happy makes me happy, not just make them laugh but get fulfilment from it,” he said.
