TV and Radio Personality Abeiku Santana has stated that it is high time Ghanaians need to embrace and promote sex as a tourism booster.
Speaking in an interview, Abeiku stated that most tourists come to our country not only to visit the tourist sites, experience the rich culture and history, but to also have a feel of our women and men.
Abeiku Santana who is also the CEO of Kaya Tours said “Sex tourism is not a promotion of promiscuity. What we are saying is, let’s have interracial marriage or relationships. When foreigners come let them like you as a man or woman and when that happens they will tend to continue the relationship with you.”
Abeiku argued that although Ghana has not legalized sex trade, many people still do it. He added that it’s time the youth in Ghana get education on how to take advantage of the looming opportunities in sex tourism.
“Countries like Kenya, Gambia, Senegal have educated their citizens to make themselves approachable and appealing to foreigners,” he reiterated.
“There are a lot of foreigners who come here, they like us but they can’t say it and we also like them but we also do not tell them, our problem is with the approach.”
He also addressed the issue on exploitation. The Kaya Tours CEO said those who have been exploited were only because they lacked requisite education.
“People who have been exploited are those who have not been educated, if you are educated and you know what is at stake for you, you will not allow yourself to be exploited because you have an agenda and aim,” he said.
“Become friends with them and be strategic enough not to give in sex at the beginning of the relationship,” he noted.
