The Chief Executive Officer of the Ghana Tourism Authority (GTA), Akwasi Agyemang, has eulogised the Ghana Police Service for a “wonderful job” done throughout the Year of Return events.

The GTA says it has been overwhelmed by the effort of the Police in ensuring a crime-free environment to ensure the safety of citizens and foreigners in the country.

Akwasi Agyemang said on the Citi Breakfast Show:

“The police have been at it. Sometimes we find them a little irritating when they have all these road blocks but they have done a decent job to have the numbers that we have had in some of these events, sometimes 20,000 people in a particular place. There has not been any major incident although there may be little events like pick-pocketing, but by and large they’ve done a wonderful job and I believe with the same level of corporation with National Security and Police, we will go far”

He added that the number of repeat visits of diasporans to the country shows that visitors left Ghana fulfilled.

“People have felt so fulfilled and for me, the testimony is the number of people who have come, I can take people like Boris Kodjoe, Bozoma, AJ Johnson who came here first time in December 2018, and as of August 2019, she had been back five times. People are making repeat visits, people are really coming back, wanting to do more”
