Six hotels and other hospitality facilities in the Ahafo Region have been closed down by the Ghana Tourism Authority (GTA) for operating without licenses.
Pubs and catering services were among those affected in Sankore, Mim, Mehame Nkwanta, Goaso, and Kenyasi.
The task force for the exercise was led by the Ahafo, Bono, and Bono East Regional Director of Authority, Joseph Appiagyei, who explained that the facilities in question are operating without GTA regulatory permits.
He told Adom News that the GTA had issued them numerous notices to comply with the law.
These warnings, however, appear to have gone unheeded.
The GTA then intervened, working with the police, to shut them down in order to protect those who use their goods and services.
