Freshest tourism ambassador in town, Bill Asamoah has stated that he cannot leave his role so far as he is needed to serve his country.
The Minister for Tourism and Creative Arts, Hon. Catherine Afeku last week announced via her Facebook account that the President for the Kumasi branch of Ghana Actor’s Guild has been appointed as the newest ambassador to help promote Ghana’s tourism industry. In the post, Honourable Afeku revealed that, Bill was appointed after the Kumawood industry unanimously agreed to the decision.
Yesterday, Bill Asamoah was at my office to pick up his appointment letter as a Tourism Ambassador for Ghana.
This appointment was made after KUMAWOOD unanimously nominated him to be appointed as an ambassador after many months of deliberation.
Speaking with Bill, he revealed he was going to ensure the promotion of Ghana to the world through quality movies, and enhance the business aspect of film making to attract investors. He also intend to promote Government policies and agenda through Ghanaian films.
I also used the opportunity to inform him that, the Nana Addo led government has not neglected the people of Kumasi in terms of Tourism, Arts and Culture development as some media reports suggest, but instead we are trying our very best to make the industry attractive for both local and foreign investors to want to invest.
However, speaking to Abrantepa on the Brunch to Lunch show on Radio Univers on Monday morning, Bill Asamoah revealed that there is no agreed date of which his contract with the government will expire. When quizzed on whether he will decide to quit his role one day, he replied sayigniit will be difficult for him to quit serving his country after been given such an honor.
I don’t think I will ever blow away such an opportunity to serve my country. So far as I am needed by my nation, I will always serve. To God and country and so I am serving my nation forever.
Bill Asamoah becomes the first ambassador to appointed this year after over 39 others were appointed about two years ago.
