Rejoinder: Shocker as Ghana Tourism Authority now charges for selfies on Adomi Bridge

The Ghana Tourism Authority has taken notice of a story dated 19th April, 2019 on your news portal, the ghanaweb, with the above headline.

The Authority does not have any hand in the day to day management of the Adomi Bridge and therefore could not have set fees or charge for its usage by visitors for selfies or any other activity.

Interestingly, the evidence provided by the writer is a receipt bearing the stamp of the Asuogyaman District Assembly and signed by the District Finance Officer. This receipt has nothing to do with the Ghana Tourism Authority.

As the regulator of tourism enterprises in the country, we will, in the public interest, follow up with the relevant local authorities.

We urge the writer and the media in general to cross check basic facts next time to avoid such misrepresentation.

Thank you.

Signed

FREDERICK ADJEI RUDOLPH

MANAGER, EASTERN REGION.

GHANA TOURISM AUTHORITY.
