VOLTA REGION REOPENS ITS MUSEUM IN HO

The Minister of Tourism, Arts and Culture, Hon. Dr. Mohammed Ibrahim Awal, has commissioned the renovated Volta Regional Museum with an appeal to the traditional rulers in the enclave to stock it with the rich historical artifacts that represent the narrative of the Volta Region.

According to the Minister, the facility is an asset of the region and therefore must depict the historical patterns and the cultural significance of the host community.

Hon. Dr. Mohammed Ibrahim Awal made the remarks in a speech read for him by the Chief Director of the Ministry of Tourism, Arts and Culture, Mr. John Yao Agbeko, at the re-opening of the Volta Regional Museum in Ho, on the 28th May, 2021, in the Volta Regional Capital.

The Museum was closed down for renovations due to some structural defects and the emergence of COVID-19 pandemic.

Hon. Dr. Mohammed Ibrahim Awal further, entreated the students in the Volta Region to take advantage of the reopening of the Museum facility under their domain to learn more about their history and cultural significance.

He reiterated his unwavering commitment and that of the government of Ghana under President Nana Akufo Addo, to stimulate Ghana's tourism sector that would have the propensity to generate 5-Billion dollars by the end of next year.

The Tourism Minister also tasked the management of the Ghana Museum and Monuments Board (GMMB) to as a matter of priority sensitize the general public on the relevance of museums in order to whip up public interest in the patronage of museums in Ghana.

This he noted would engender maximum visitation of the forts and castles dotted across the country.

He commended the German Embassy and the Ghana Gas company for their immense support in the renovation of the Volta Regional Museum and further entreated the residents in the region to endeavour to patronize the facility.

The German Ambassador to Ghana, H.E. Christoph Retzlaff said his country's support for the renovation of the Museum is a testimony of the shared Cultural heritage and values with the people of the Volta Region which pre-dates in 1940s during the colonial era when Germany was the colonial domination in that part of the country.

He commended the various partners for their support in realizing the completion of the Museum project.

The Volta Regional Minister Honorable Dr Archibald Letsa said tourism and culture is the best identity for everyone, hence must be appreciated and showcased.

According to him, the facelift is furnished with some artworks designed by Voltarians, paintings of notable persons from the region including the late, former President Jerry John Rawlings, the first Miss Ghana, Monica Amekoafia, Ghana's first female lawyer, Annie Ruth Baeta and some belongings of the late German Governor of the region in the late 1900s.

Mr. Abdouramane Diallo, Representative of UNESCO in Ghana, appealed to the western countries to consider bringing back cultural artifacts taken out from Africa illegally in order to restore the dwindled African heritage.

He said that UNESCO is providing a platform that would facilitate an engagement to ensure that African artifacts illegally in possession of the western countries are brought back to Africa.

He commended President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo, for adding his voice to the on-going discussion on how to help Africans to retrieve their artifacts taken by the western countries.

The Acting Executive Director of Ghana Museums and Monument Board (GMMB), Mr. Ivor Agyeman Duah also lauded the quest of German Government in providing a 250,000 Euros for the roofing and other auxiliary works that saw the renovation of the Ho Museum.

He added that his outfit would continue to partner with the German Government to undertake other viable projects that would help in the cultural preservation of the Ghanaian people, given that Ghana and Germany had a rich history during the colonial era.

Meanwhile, the entire Ho Museum renovation project, was supported by the Ghana Gas company Limited, the German Embassy and the internally generated Funds from the Ghana Museum and Monuments Board


Background: The mandate of the Ghana Museums and Monument Board (GMMB) is to acquire, protect, conserve and document the Nation’s movable and immovable material cultural heritage for posterity, for the purposes of research and education of the public.
