Bono Regional Centre for National Culture undergoing facelift

The edifice of the Centre for National Culture (CNC) at Sunyani, the Bono Regional capital, is undergoing a facelift, to make it attractive, and meet modern standards.

During a visit to the CNC in Sunyani, on Thursday, the Ghana News Agency (GNA) observed that the lighting systems had improved, while other maintenance works were steadily progressing.

Painting works had been completed at offices of the Centre, while new street bulbs had also been fixed around and at the Jubilee Park.

MrSeiduIddrisuYeboah, the Acting Bono Regional Director of the CNC, told the GNA criminal activities such as theft and burglary were common within the centre because of poor lighting and security systems.

He explained that the lighting and painting were part of the first phase of the rehabilitation works to be done at the centre.

MrYeboahsaid culture remained the dignity of the people, and contributed significantly to the nation’s economy, hence the need to rehabilitate the centreto enhance its patronage.

He said all broken chairs at the Jubilee Park would be fixed under the first phase of the rehabilitation works.

Construction work on the edifice of the CNC was abandoned and left in a deplorable condition, since it was set up by Ghana’s first President, Dr Kwame Nkrumah.

Despite promises by successive governments, the facility remained uncompleted, a situation that attracted public outcry. – GNA
