The Vice President Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia says, the Anloga and Keta enclave of the Volta region are highly competitive destination for tourism in Ghana.
He said, the two areas are the growing and well patronized attraction sites for tourism in the country.
Dr. Bawumia also touted the tourism potential of the area, adding that issues affecting the area, such as poor road networks and the tidal wave, are being considered by the government to boost the tourism potential of the area.
“A common knowledge is that Anlo Traditional Area, especially Anloga and Keta is one of the growing, well patronized and highly competitive tourist destinations in Ghana and beyond. Aside the enormous tourism potentials of the districts, which draw hundreds of tourists here every week and several thousand every year, it is naturally, a peaceful area to sit and relax.”
The Vice president made these remarks when he addressed the chiefs and people of Keta as part of their 60th celebrations of the Hogbetsotso Festival.
The colourful festival, also attracted renowned traditional leaders of the country, including the Asantehene Otumfuo Osei Tutu II, the Ga Mantse Nii Tackie Teiko Tsuru II and the Omanhene of Kwahu Traditional Area Daasebre Akuamoah Agyapong II.
The presence of the Asantehene in Anlo was even more historic, as his visit was the first time in over 120 years that any Asantehene has visited the Volta Region.
