Etornam Flolu noted that it is important to develop the untapped tourist sites in the district and make the district attractive to the world.

“The Afadzato South District has several tourist sites that yet to be tapped and as the political leader of the district my vision is to make sure that the Afadzato South becomes the hub of tourism in the country and beyond which definitely will boost the local economy, “ Mr Flolu said.

The Tafi Atome Monkey Sanctuary is a well-known tourist site which is yet to see a major boost after decades of its existence. The site, even though has some level of popularity needs an urgent economic boost according to the DCE.
