President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo has called on Ghanaians to endeavour to visit our domestic tourist sites rather than travelling outside the country.
He advised that instead of travelling to Dubai to spend their vacations, they should rather travel around to discover the several interesting places within the country.
Speaking at Ghana’s 62nd Independence Anniversary celebrations in Tamale, which was held for the first time outside the national capital, since independence, President Akufo-Addo noted that getting to know Ghana helped to dispel the prejudices of the unknown.
According to the president, we have a very beautiful country and it deserves to be explored and admired.
“Fellow Ghanaians I’m glad that we are here in Tamale for this year’s celebration, I hope that it will spur on many people to get to know our country. We have a very beautiful country and it deserves to be explored and admired. Apart from the joy of discovering the beauties and charms of our country, getting to know Ghana helps to dispell the prejudices of the unknown.
Those who have means to do so, should consider it more important to travel around and know Ghana before they embark on their next vacation to Dubai," he said.
President Akufo-Addo added that the Tourism Authority has its work cut out for them. He intimated that if it gets it right with internal Ghanaian tourist then they will be ready to cope with foreign tourists.
He therefore urged those who lived in the big cities, in particular, to get around the country a little, as it might just change their outlook a little and make them a little more tolerant of the difficulties that we need to overcome as a country.
