Kennedy Agyapong has heavily descended on the Tourism minister for saying he wants to use Funerals in Ghana as tourist attraction sites.
Minister of Tourism, Arts, and Culture, Dr. Ibrahim Mohammed Awal has hinted at a potential shift in the country’s tourism strategy that could see the rise of “funeral tourism” as a means to bolster the local tourism industry.
While the planned initiative may not sit too well with some industry players, Dr. Awal believes it is a unique opportunity to showcase Ghana’s rich culture and traditions to the world.
Outlining his vision for “funeral tourism,” Dr Awal emphasized that funerals in Ghana were not just solemn events but vibrant celebrations of life that offered a window into the country’s diverse cultures.
According to him, showcasing these traditions will provide an authentic and immersive cultural experience for tourists.
This decision by the Government irritated Kennedy Agyapong who called them out for not being visionary leaders.
