The National Theatre's board chair, Nana Fredua Agyeman Ofori-Atta has criticized celebrities who took part in the #OccupyJulorbiHouse protest.
According to Mr. Agyeman Ofori-Atta, the creatives ought to have demonstrated some level of decency and respect.
He said during a panel discussion on GHONE TV that it is improper for creatives to participate in such protests since their presence changes how the nation is portrayed.
“On the matter of the demonstration, first of all, again, why would you use a name like that for an institutional place, a place that belongs to Ghanaians? These are some of the names that those artists who claim to be ambassadors of Ghana, they were happy to use a name like that for a Ghanaian institution simply because of some political emotion,” Nana Fredua Agyeman Ofori-Atta stated.
He continued that the Jubilee House is not a common place for anyone to play with.
“There is history there, you see, we get so caught up in this our politicking and dividing ourselves so much that we forget about the things that brought us together that we call that place a ‘thief’. I don’t represent a thief and neither do the people who occupy the building.”
