The Minister for Tourism, Arts, and Culture, Dr. Ibrahim Mohammed Awal, has announced the government’s plan for the rehabilitation of well-known historical sites like museums, castles, and forts, across the country in 2024.

Dr. Awal revealed the agenda during the inauguration of the improved Kwame Nkrumah Memorial Park in Accra on July 4, 2023.

According to him, the renovation of  Osu Castle, the National Museum, and other forts and castles will attract tourists to visit the sites that in return can generate income for the country.

Dr. Awal expressed the government’s commitment to making Ghana the leading center of tourism in Africa by leveraging on the nation’s rich heritage and political significance.

He attributed the success to the impact of the “Year of Return” initiative, which began in 2019, stating that an increasing number of visitors would contribute significantly to the nation’s economy.

“With continued efforts, tourism could generate $6 to $7 billion annually and create up to 150,000 jobs each year as part of the government’s job creation agenda”, he noted.

Dr. Awal expressed profound gratitude to President Akufo-Addo, Mr. Pierre Frank Laporte, the Country Director of the World Bank in Ghana, Finance Minister Ken Ofori-Atta, and Samia Nkrumah, daughter of Ghana’s first President, Dr. Kwame Nkrumah, for their great contribution towards the renovation of Kwame Nkrumah Memorial Park.
