One of Ghana’s veteran highlife musicians, Rex Omar, has called on Akosua Agyapong to desist from making baseless allegations of misappropriation of funds against the Ghana Music Rights Organisation (GHAMRO) and its board members.

Born Rex Owusu Marfo, the former board chairman of GHAMRO, said Akosua Agyapong’s accusations are far from right and should not be given listening ears.

According to him, any group or persons who claim to have evidence that GHAMRO is not making judicious use of their money should trigger legal actions to seek accountability.

Akosua Agyapong has accused the leadership of GHAMRO of embezzling funds belonging to the rights owners and also enriching themselves as a result of poor monitoring and accountability.

Akosua Agyapong, who has constantly trumpeted the rot at the royalty collection and distribution organisation, also expressed disappointment in board members of the collective society.

The female highlife musician however, called for reforms into the operations of GHAMRO, adding that there was no transparency, accountability and equitable distribution of royalties to the rights owners.

Reacting to claims Akosua Agyapong made concerning the collection and distribution of funds by the organisation, Rex Omar exhorted her to avoid badmouthing and seek better understanding of issues before making public pronouncements.

He added that Akosua Agyapong must allow persons elected to lead the group to do their work because she cannot, in any way, execute a single task when given same opportunity.

Rex Omar indicated that the board members of the collective society are striving to be transparent and accountable. However, some people have made up their minds to not pay attention or believe whatever is being said.

“In this life, there are two groups of people – there is somebody who says ‘I don’t know (understand) and explain to me’ and then somebody who would also say ‘I don’t know but whatever you want to explain I don’t care (about it); I’ve made up my mind and this is what I think’.

“We have majority of people like that. One of them like Akosua Agyapong. Since KojoAntwi’s time, she’s been going from television to radio stations saying ‘GHAMRO is stealing money, I have documents. If you have a proof that anybody has stolen GHAMRO money, it’s criminal. Take those documents, report and let the person be arrested; then, you have a case.”

He stated that people cannot jump “from one radio station to another” making accusations just for the sake of it.“Common restaurant you couldn’t run. It’s a joke,” Rex Omar teased.

According to him, tourism in Ghana has come to be recognized as pivotal to inclusive economic growth and development, adding that the journey to this favorable position has been backed by several, carefully planned initiatives, targeted at boosting the sector’s performance and contribution to national development.

He said this when he represented Ghana at the Forum for the Internationalisation of Tourism in the Canary Islands (FITCAN) in Tenerife and Gran Canaria (Canary Islands, in Spain).

The forum provided an opportunity to showcase services, knowledge, and tourist products to international buyers and investors.

FIT also focuses on presenting plans for the development and attraction of still-in-development touristic locations.

Addressing the guests, he noted that its the vision of the Government of Ghana to position the country as the most preferred destination in Africa, and the country receives two million international tourists per annum.

“Favourable rankings by the World Economic Forum Global Competitive Report, successful economic policies, political stability, a safe and secure environment, unique and relatively better tourism assets and infrastructure, improved visa policy, and better travel connectivity, have made Ghana become a comparatively preferable destination for tourism, especially for MICE in the sub-region” he added.

He noted that the Ghana Tourism Development Project is in line with the UNWTO’s 5 sustainable tourism development pillars of tourism policy and governance, economic performance, creation of employment and decent work, poverty reduction, and sustainability.

In addressing constraints faced by the sector and creating the needed conducive environment, he said the Government of Ghana through its implementing agency, the MoTAC with the funding support of $40 million from the International Development Association of the World Bank Group is implementing the Ghana Tourism Development Project (GTDP).

He added that the tourism sector is currently generating $5billion per annum, creating 200, 000 direct jobs and 400, 000 indirect jobs, and Ghana became the Centre of the World.

Okraku Mantey added that the Government of Ghana seeks to harness the synergies both at the local, national, and international levels so that we can together build stronger and lasting prosperity beyond the borders.
