Engage local communities in running tourist attractions – Tourism advocate

Tourism advocate, Paa John Bentifi Dadson is calling for a more effective engagement of local communities in the running of tourist attractions in the country.

Paa John Bentifi Dadson says this could also resolve the situation where the attractions deteriorate due to neglect by the state.

The deplorable state of some major tourist attraction was highlighted when the chief of Elmina pronounced a curse on any visitor to the Elmina castle.

The chief was livid over the failure of the Ghana Tourism Authority to renovate the decades old facility.

Mr Bentifi Dadson was of the view that a stronger local engagement could help resolve the challenge.

“Engage the local indegenes as for that it’s the biggest thing that needs to be done because the people in the locality need to appreciate where you are coming from and it has to be above board…” he said.
