Tourist sites in need of a facelift – Sector Minister


Tourism Minister Mohamed Awal with his deputy Mark Okraku Mantey and some members of the Ghana Tourism Authority (GTA) visited some tourist sites here in the Greater Accra region as part of the planned activities to stimulate and develop the sector .

Mr Awal said that “the government’s goal is to develop at least two iconic sites in each of the 16 regions to make the country one of the biggest tourist attractions in the world by the end of 2024”.

This is good news for the tourism sector as plans are well advanced for the improvement of interesting sites in the country.

“Our plan is to visit the 16 regions of Ghana to see the tourist attraction, so that where we can grow we grow within acceptable limits and where we need to start new ones we build it”, did he declare.

The Sector Minister began his tour of three regions of Greater Accra on Monday, his first stop being the National Museum.

He continued to the town of James where he visited various places near the lighthouse, including gymnasiums. From there, the team traveled to the recently reopened Fort Ussher.

The next stop was the Kwame Nkrumah Mausoleum. Well, if you missed the historical lessons and the nostalgic feeling that this environment brings, the Minister may soon be giving the venue a facelift that will make your next experience more exciting.

Well, the facelift will not just happen at the mausoleum but at other entertainment and tourist sites across the country.

Meanwhile, the sector minister said 55 million GHC is ready to be disbursed to various stakeholders in the sector.
