Bentsifi’s Tattle

Here comes the busy Easter break weekend. An occasion that offers opportunity for hospitality and tourism operators to be up and doing, to serve their usual clients and attract new ones. 

In these tough times, no service provider can afford to mess up, and I pray that those planning events this weekend get full houses. Something happened last week that I want to touch on. Did you know there was an excess of 5000 people in Accra? So many people from across the West African sub region especially, and Africa in general.

Here for the All Africa Games, they all had beds to sleep in, meals to eat, vehicles to transport them to and from their accommodation and the various venues where the events too place.

All of them would have spent some money over the duration of their stay. Money in places where otherwise, would not have seen the light of the cash that flowed. This is the power of tourism. Often, even in the glare of things, it is subtle in its manifestation.

I saw a video clip of a couple of Nigerian journalists sharing their experience on the week they'd stayed in Accra during the tournament. They were so full of praise for how the tournament turned out.

How, in spite of the many challenges the organisers faced, including much criticism from the citizenry, everything happened anyways. I felt so proud and I  think we all should.

What's new? "Kwahu ooo Kwahu", the exciting Easter festivities that takes place up the Kwahu mountain happens this weekend. Go on an excursion to the mountains and enjoy any of the activities lined up for the period including the Paragliding Festival hosted by the Ghana Tourism Authority (GTA). That's a good one.

Along the coast, from Maaha Beach Resort near Nzulezu, through Busua Beach Resort to the many other resorts in the Elmina, Cape Coast area to Senya, Winneba, Kokrobite, La, Prampram, Ada, Dzita, Keta, Anloga and Kedzi enclave, there are exciting fun beach events going on that you can take part in.

Of course, if you are a Christian, don't forget the reason for the season. Go to church and fellowship. Then come to play. Life is short. Make memories. Next month, we will continue the grind in getting our lives back on track. For now, this weekend, give hospitality some money! Get some enjoyment in return!
