The Film Producers Association of Ghana (FIPAG) has said that some people in government and other influential people are bent on sabotaging the association’s intended demonstration against the recent power cuts in the country.

According to a statement signed by spokesperson, Michael Kweku Ola, some people have called some of their members asking them to alienate themselves from the demonstration.

“…some people in government have gone the extra mile to push their agenda through some respected leaders and executives of FIPAG and other stake holding associations of the industry to call members to alienate themselves from the demo and discredit it. These members have been calling and are calling our members not to participate or endorse the demo, giving flimsy, cowardice and zany reasons”, a portion of the statement read.

The association has called on its members to come in their numbers and voice their grievances regarding government’s slow handling of the energy crisis.

“By this, we are calling on all fronts of the industry to remain resolute and not be swayed by the threats and lies that are being promulgated around”.

The demonstration dubbed, “Esum Aduru Yen” [darkness has befallen us], is slated for May 28, 2015 in Kumasi. Mr. Ola in an earlier interview maintained that the demonstration should have been staged in April but they decided to hold on with it upon hearing that the government was importing power badges which will arrive in April, to help reduce the energy crisis. However, they realised the government again failed to deliver on its promise, hence the demonstration. He noted that movie producers are unable to work because of the power cuts and this has affected us so much.
