Lai Mohammed who corrected the misconception in certain circle that he paid more attention to the information sector during the previous administration said he would consolidate on the numerous achievements recorded and do more for the culture and tourism sector.
“There is a misconception in certain circles that we paid more attention to the Information sector than we did to Culture and Tourism.
“This may appear so because the issues we usually deal with in the Information sector are those that receive the bigger play in the media.
“But I can tell you, with evidence, that we achieved a lot in the Tourism and Culture Sector, or in the Creative Industry generally,” he said
Highlighting the programmes to build on the gains of the past four years, the minister said he would set the necessary legal framework, conclude inauguration of the National Policy on Culture and National Policy on Tourism.
