James Aboagye Now FIPAG President
Former general secretary of the Film Producers Association of Ghana (FIPAG), Mr. James Aboagye, has officially taken the mantle as President of the Association, after the tenure of Mr. Augustine Abbey, popularly known as ‘Idikoko’.
At a short ceremony at the Head Office in Accra, Idikoko handed over the mantle to the newly sworn-in executives.
“FIPAG is a well-established entity that is captured in the government’s documents (Film Act). It is the only recognised film producers association, so I’ll plead with you to protect that image.
“We have connections with embassies in Ghana so they can assist you whenever you need their help, especially your travel,” Idikoko said.
He further advised the new executives to continue the membership drive in other regions, aside the well-established ones like Ashanti, Greater Accra, Northern and Upper East regions.
“In the quest for the membership drive, a visit was made to the Volta region at the Catering Guest house and held a meeting with the film producers to bring them on board. My regrets, if I’m asked, are the welfare challenges,” he concluded.
Aboagye, in his acceptance speech, promised to work with affiliate institutions to seek the wellbeing of movie producers in Ghana.
Some of the newly elected individuals present included Fiifi Hayford (Vice President), Castro (Treasurer), Christopher & Osei Tutu (Executive Members).
