“This endeavour forms a pivotal part of our ministry’s ongoing commitment to establish a tangible space that honours and commemorates the legacy of Ghana’s distinguished presidents, Dr. Mohammed asserted.

“Notably, we will soon begin construction on a “heroes park” dedicated to the revered big six,” he said.
“In addition,” the Tourism Minister stated, “modernization initiatives are on the horizon for major attractions such as the Danquah circle, Busia circle at 37, and many more spanning regions such as Saltpond, Tamale, and Kyebi over the coming year.”
