The Member of Parliament (MP) for Assin Central constituency, Kennedy Agyapong has challenged the Regional House of Chiefs and people of the Central Region to go into privatization by selling the Cape Coast and Elmina Castles to him to take tourism to another level that will shock all and sundry.

The lawmaker who said he plans to stay off politics and venture into tourism complained that the enviable Castles in the region have been rotting away due to lack of proper tourism promotion.

The Controversial business mogul suggested that the two Castles need to be given facelift in order to attract foreigners, saying the slaves’ dungeon route leading to the sea needs massive expansion.

In an interview with Net2 TV monitored by MyNewsGh.com he explained that if the Castles are sold to him, he will build a big ship on the sea with accompanying services such as restaurants which will transport tourists to their chosen destinations.
