Mr. Percival Kofi Akpaloo, founder and leader of the Liberal Party of Ghana (LPG), suggested changing all weekday holidays to Friday or Monday.
He said this will promote domestic tourism. “When the holiday is in the middle of the week, you can’t travel because you have to go to work the next day. “But if it’s Friday or Monday, you can use the long weekend for sightseeing around the country, etc.,” Akpallu said in an interview with Daily Graphic on Wednesday.
He furthers the speech by saying, the government can use this strategy to expand the money they generate from these tourism centers. This initiative will attract new people to go on tours.
