Some stakeholders in the Ghanaian movie industry have taken a swipe at Gabby Okyere-Darko, a leading member of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) following comments he made about the sector.

Mr Okyere-Darko in a Facebook post last Saturday expressed his disappointment in the industry, saying that the sector has failed to impact positively on the country’s development agenda.
