You promised to build regional theatres, up till date no show — Clemento Suarez to government

Clement Ashiteye, a Ghanaian comedian and comic rapper professionally known as Clemento Suarez, appears dissatisfied with the government for failing to deliver on the promise of building regional theaters across the country.

As part of its campaign promises prior to the 2016 and 2020 elections, the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) promised to build national theatres in each of the country's 16 regions to help boost the creative arts industry while also generating a reasonable amount of revenue for the country.

However, after five years in office, the government has made no progress on the project, prompting the award-winning comedian to urge the government to reconsider and fulfill its promise.

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

"The President promised to build regional theaters in both the NPP's 2016 and 2020 manifestos, but there has been no show." "We are waiting, Mr. President, Mr. President," he grumbled.

Clemento Suarez's greatest accomplishments as a comedian in Ghana include beating out well-known musicians like Sarkodie and Stonebwoy for an Emmy Award and helping to launch the careers of upcoming comics.

"I was in the same category as Sarkodie and Stonebwoy, so I was very happy to come out on top." Aside from awards, my greatest accomplishment has been paving the way for my juniors to make a living through stage acting and comedy. "Seeing people happy not only makes me happy, but it also gives me fulfillment," he said.
