Ghanaian businessman who doubles as the Member of Parliament for Assin Central, Honorable Kennedy Akompreko Agyapong has asked the Regional House of Chiefs to sell two of Ghana’s biggest castles to him.
The controversial law maker explained that he is ever ready to take tourism in Ghana to a new level; that is if the good people of the Central Region sell the Cape Coast and the Elmina castles to him.
He bemoaned the neglect of these two national assets to the detriment of tourism in Ghana. “…instead of Ghanaians to make good use of these two castles which can bring tourists into our country, the castles have been neglected to collapse which is going against our tourist industry”, he stated.
He has therefore asked the chiefs to sell the castles to him and watch how he will recoup revenue to the benefits of people in the Central Region.
He was on Net2 TV for an interview where he said ”I’m challenging the Regional House of Chiefs, people of central region and CEDECOM to sell to me both Cape Coast and Elmina Castles on just one condition, we will take pictures of the tunnel leading to the sea and then we will open up that tunnel for people to walk through it, we will put a ship or build a big restaurant on the sea, its simple, you write point of no return”.
