H.E President Akufo-Addo has appointed Enoch Yaw Oduro-Agyei, more popularly known as Trigmatic, as a member of the Governing Body of the National Folklore Board.
Aside Trigmatic, who else makes up the National Folklore Board? Well, Jamie says…
The governing body has Madam Bernice Ann Deh-Kumah, Executive Director of the National Folklore Board; Madam Yaa Attafua, Copyright Administrator, Mr. Enoch Yaw Oduro-Agyei (also known as Trigmatic), Mr. Philip Boakye Dua Oyinka, and Madam Amy Frimpong, as well as Madam Josephine Ohene-Osei, and Madam Sarah Norkor Anku as members.
In the letter dated February 3, signed by the Chief of Staff, Honourable Akosua Frema Osei-Opare, the President appointed Enoch Yaw Oduro-Agyei (Trigmatic) as a member of the Governing Body of the National Folklore Board.
The Deputy Minister of Tourism, Arts and Culture (MoTAC), Mark Okraku Mantey, in a meeting with members of the new board, underscored the need for Ghana to have protected folklore in order to help drive the country’s tourism and creative arts industry.
For him, if the country failed to have strong folklore, it would negatively affect the country’s culture, creative arts, and tourism.
Mr. Okraku Mantey made the call when he inaugurated the Governing Board of the National Folklore Board in Accra on Monday, February 14, 2022.
What will be the role of the board members?
The board, with the mandate to help facilitate the work of the National Folklore Board, which is a statutory body established and mandated under the Copyright Act, 2005 (Act 690) (the “Act”), to administer, register, promote and protect Ghanaian expressions of folklore on behalf of the President and also for the people of Ghana, is chaired by Professor Abdulai Salifu Asuro.
