Veteran Actor, Oscar Provencal has commended government for establishing structures and funds to support the creative arts industry.

The Finance Minister recently announced the allocation of GHC30 million to the media and creative arts industry, while presenting the mid-year budget.

In an exclusive interview with ABC News, the actor said, “we can congratulate government especially His Excellency the President for this gesture.”

He however added that the previous government under former President John Mahama also deserved commendation because “it was during the era of ex-President Mahama that the Film Act, Act 935 was passed.”

Oscar Provencal, who is popular for his lead road inĀ  famous television law and crime series, Inspector Bediako, said he was impressed by the funding from the incumbent, and also commended government for establishing the National Film Authority Board as well as allocating offices for the actors guild.

He is however demanding clarity and breakdown of the allocated GHC30 million in order to ensure accountability and transparency.

“I don’t know how that money is going to be allocated…we have the right to demand where it is going to go – we have a sector minister – Madam Minister please how are you going to share this money,” he probed.
