Western Region lacks photo gallery
Sekondi, Jan 12, GNA - The Western Region does not have a
photographic gallery and its archival building has not been
completed since 1978.
The gallery and building would assist the Public Records and
Archives Administration Department (PRAAD) to properly sort,
store and document all relevant developments and changes
that occur in the region.
Mr Joseph Justice Turton-Mensah, Western Regional Director
of PRAAD, said this to Ghana News Agency in an interview at
Sekondi on Wednesday.
He said an exhibition on the Western Region's contribution
to the Ghana's independence would be mounted in March to
coincide with the "Ghana at 50" celebrations.
The exhibition would focus on individuals who worked in the
Western Region and later assumed political power.
It will also focus on westerners working in several parts of
the country, libraries in the region, schools, hospitals,
universities, mining, past managing directors of the Ghana
Ports and Harbours Authority, military, police, railways,
old trains, Sekondi location, chiefs, queen mothers,
individuals, Members of Parliament and all Western Regional
ministers both past and present.
Mr Turton-Mensah said the exhibition is meant to awaken the
people of the Region to properly keep records of important
developments in the region.
