TRAVEL FREAK? Minister of Tourism & Arts Is On A Trip To Europe – Reason For Her Absence?

Minister of Tourism, Arts & Culture – Catherine Afeku

It’s been argued that no Minister under President Akufo Addo’s administration has traveled more than the Minster of Tourism, Arts and Culture, Madam Catherine Afeku, just in one year of stewardship – has heard it too!

After all the ‘rhubarb’ that ensued after  The President’s media encounter on his 1-year in office, one of the talking points is the absence of one his sector Ministers – Madam Afeku!

The Minister was absent

Sources close to the Ministry suggest that the Minister is on another trip to Europe for some tourism-related trip and she is said to have gone to with Akwesi Agyemang, CEO for National Tourism Authority and Kwadwo Antwi, CEO for the Ghana Tourism Development Company.

For the Minister to shun a very crucial meeting like the Media Encounter that is supposed to chronicle the government’s performance thus year in its tenure, then the trip in Europe could be crucial.

The President

However, some industry stakeholders have questioned the incessant travels of the Minister, whose number of trips since assuming office is more than the number of achievements chalked thus far – heard this too!

Interestingly, the talk of the Minister achieving virtually nothing for the sector thus far, reflected in the President’s address at the media encounter, where he failed to mention anything on the area of Tourism, Arts & Culture.
