Do We Really Need '20-25' Tourism Ambassadors? ...Written By AFIA ENGLISH

Few days ago, the Ghana Tourism Authority (GTA), under the auspices of the Ministry of Tourism, Arts and Culture, unveiled 25 tourism ambassadors to spearhead the “See Ghana, Eat Ghana, Wear Ghana, Feel Ghana” , campaign.
The 25 tourism ambassadors includes Praye, Sarkodie, Wiyaala,Daddy Lumba,Okyeame Kwame,D-black, Agya Koo,Bibi Bright ,Diana Asamoaj,ReggienBollie, among others. According to sources,25 more will be unveiled.
I was quite shocked at the number and i still am. Do we really need more than ten tourism ambassadors to re-orient Ghanaians on a new sense of national pride in its heritage, culture, and way of life?

Did Chris Attoh just hint on the reason why his marriage to Damilola collapsed?

The rate of divorce keeps spiraling upwardly. What could be the problem? .
Are people marrying or people are just marrying for the wrong reasons?
Another celebrity marriage has collapsed and we are all shocked.
Apparently, Chris Attoh and Damilola Adegbite are no more an item.
But Did Chris Attoh just disclosed one of the reasons why his marriage to his estranged wife and actress, Damilola Adegbite crashed?
Sitting with Bola Ray on Starr Chat, Chris spoke about their divorce where he said a woman has to be submissive to her husband.
He said:
“a woman who does not submit to the husband and trust his instincts is not going to be successful in marriage. I think that we have forgotten about the fundamentals of marriage. When you love someone, it’s important to be able to forgive, respect and submit.” he told Bola Ray.
“As a woman you need to trust the captain of the ship. It’s truly important if you want peace in your home.”
If you are a Christian, it is your bible that will take you th…
