Beach-Side Bars In Cape Coast

Operators of drinking spots and bars along some beaches in Cape Coast have defied an order by the Cape Coast Metropolitan Assembly [CCMA] directing them to stop operation for failure to follow due process in setting up these places.

Benya Lagoon

The Komenda Edina Eguafo Abrem [KEEA] Municipal Environmental Coordinator, Alex Damptey, says the assembly cannot in any way be blamed for the embarrassing state the Benya lagoon in Elmina was during the just ended Bakatue festival.

Ghana places 50th on the list of the 69 poorest countries in the world. This is according to a study published on February 13, 2017 by the Global Finance Magazine based on the 2016 IMF World Economic Outlook Database.

The report has Central African Republic placing first with a host of other African countries featuring prominently among the poorest countries of the world.

Ghana’s neighbours Togo, Burkina Faso and Cote D’Ivoire placed 12th, 18th and 45th respectively.

The Cape Coast North Sub-Metro has suspended activities of all information centres.

In a letter addressed to the operators of all public information centres sighted by ATL FM News, the activities of these centres stand suspended until their operations are duly registered with the assembly and are ready to comply with the rules and regulations governing the operations of these centres.

The people of Elmina in the Komenda Edina Eguafo Abrem (KEEA) Municipality on Saturday climaxed this year’s celebration of Edina Bakatue Festival with a grand durbar that brought together chiefs, indigenes of the area and well-wishers.

The Honourable Member of Parliament of KEEA, Mr. Samuel Mills, addressing the gathering said issues that bother on the development of the youth in the country must be of national concern since they are the future.
