Explore Ghana before travelling to Dubai – Akufo-Addo urges Ghanaians

According to him, there are many sights and sceneries across the country that every citizen should visit to learn about new things.

He entreated Ghanaians living in the capital, Accra, especially, to visit other parts of the country in order learn about those areas and experience their culture and traditions.

The President was speaking during the 62nd Independence Day celebration held at the Aliu Mahama Stadium in Tamale, Northern Region.

“Those who have the means to do so should consider it more important to travel around and know Ghana before they embark on the next vacation to Dubai,” Nana Addo said.

“…those who live in the big cities, in particular, to get around the country a little… it might just change their outlook, make them a little more tolerant about the difficulties that we need to overcome.”

The President emphasized the need for Ghana to maximize its tourism sector, insisting authorities in charge of tourism must get things right.

This, he said, would not only boost tourism locally, but will also ensure that more foreigners troop to the country to visit tourist sites.

He added that he hopes this year’s Independence Parade, hosted for the first time in the north, will encourage many people to get to know other parts of the country.
