Actor, John Dumelo, has dispelled assertions that his appointment as Ghana’s Tourism Ambassador is a gratification for declaring his support for the governing National Democratic Congress (NDC).

A section of the public has attributed his appointment to the fact that he endorsed the party and was spotted at some rallies.

But speaking on Joy FM’s Rhythmz A-Z, John Dumelo reiterated that he is not being paid, neither is it ‘job for the boys’ as some put it.

“It has nothing to do with that because if I was appointed and being paid or given certain privileges, then you can say this is job for the boys. But I’m actually using my own resource to play the role as an ambassador. It’s not because I said I like this person or that person so that’s my reward. No, my reward is serving my country,” he noted.

Abeiku Santana has indicated that he will engage taxi drivers to promote tourism in the country. According to him, there are more benefits from the sector and there is the need to bring on board institutions and individuals to help promote it in Ghana.

“Tourism is a major economic activity. If you travel to countries like, South Africa, Kenya and Zambia among others, they are making so much money from tourism. I can say countries that are promoting tourism are developing on all angles, not only from natural resources such as gold, diamond and oil, etc… but from tourism… We are first engaging those I term as original ambassadors of tourism, that’s taxi drivers. I call them by that name because if you travel to any country or city or town, the people who can tell you what’s happening in that particular area are taxi drivers. That means, when we are able to transform taxi drivers to entrepreneurs who can adopt measures to make money for themselves. So we are on course,” he has said.
