Prominent media personalities who hail from the Volta Region but domicile in Accra, are back home this weekend as part of a campaign to promote the region’s vast tourism potentials to the rest of the country and the world.
Dubbed #VisitVolta, the campaign, which is an initiative of the Volta Regional Coordinating Council in conjunction with the Ghana Tourism Authority (GTA) and the Eastern/Volta/Oti branch of the Association of Ghana Industries (AGI), also forms part of activities leading to the 2021 Volta Trade and Investment Fair, slated for November.
Personalities on the trip include, Bernard Avle, of CitiFM/CitiTV, Dzifa Bampoh-3FM/TV3, Emefa Apawu-Joy News, Kafui Dey, of ‘Who wants to be Rich’ fame, Mawuli Fui Kwadzovia – Public Relations practitioner.
Their task is largely to use their influence and platforms to project the region’s potentials, in order to attract tourists and investors.
The team, which arrived Friday afternoon (July 16) in the south, were formally welcomed by officials of GTA and AGI at the Sogakope Beach Resort, where they were taken on a boat ride on the River Volta.
They also visited tourist sites in the Anlo area, such Atorkor Slave Market, and Fort Prinzenstein, before settling at the Eli Beach Resort & Hotel at Tegbi, for a bonfire night with poetry and music.
The team who are already sharing their moments via social media, are expected to visit other tourist attractions, including Afadjato, the highest Mountain in Ghana, Tafi-Atome Monkey Sanctuary, Wli Water falls, Ote falls and Canopy walkway at Amedzofe, among others, before returning to their bases.
