A Deputy Minister for Information, Hon. Samuel Okudzeto Ablakwa, yesterday observed that if the Country is to be united, developed and enlightened then it must be through the assistance of the National Film and Television Institute (NAFTI).
Adding that the Institute informs, educates and has a long standing reputation in film and television training in Africa that can be built upon.
Mr. Ablakwa made these known at an official handing-over ceremony to a new administration and board members of NAFTI.
He also appealed to the new leadership that Ghanaians are looking up to them to build the Institute as well as to ensure quality control in the professional development of the graduates.
The out-going Rector of NAFTI, Mr. Martin Loh on his part noted that NAFTI has gone through a lot of challenges over the years and urged the new board and management to help move the Institute forward.
The in-coming Rector, Prof. Linus Abraham, Acting Director of NAFTI said that the Institute must respond to its vision that aims to energise the creative industry.
He pledged to build an academic environment that foster intellectual and professional curiosity and growth. ''We will demand discipline of our students, but it will be the kind of discipline that will be fair,'' he added.
