Tema Metropolitan Chief Executive, Hon. Felix Mensah Nii Anang-La has opened up on the much talked about ultramodern Theatre in Tema.
The Tema Mayor says the theatre will form part of his commitment to boost the potential of the creative arts industry in Tema.
He made this known in an interview with host DJ Nyaami on SVTV Africa. Hon. Anang-La noted that the Assembly is working assiduously in putting up an ultramodern theatre for the people of Tema.
"We are committed to developing Tema. Tema has lots of talents including footballers, musicians and actors. So in helping the youth, we plan to construct an ultramodern social theatre at Mante Din park at Site 15 . I know the community is going to like the theatre when it's done."
Hon. Anang-La added that, even though some locals have raised objections against the construction of the theatre, he said, majority of the youth are in support of the project.
"Since we came out to build a theatre in Tema, some youths are not in support of it which I believe it's politically motivated but majority of the people have agreed so we'll go ahead and do the good work for the people of Tema and make sure we provide them with a social theatre and I know it will benefit everybody. He said.
Touching on his relationship with Tema East MP, Hon. Titus Nii Glover, who in turn is also not in support of the theatre project, the Mayor said, they've been brothers for over two decades, regardless of their disagreements, they will still be brothers.
Hon. Anang-La Pointed out that, the contract has been awarded to Canal Olympia, also known as Bollore Africa logistics. A French company which operates in Ghana.
