I’m challenging the Regional House of Chiefs, people of central region and CEDECOM to sell to me both Cape Coast and Elmina Castles on just one condition, we will take pictures of the tunnel leading to the sea and then we will open up that tunnel for people to walk through it, we will put a ship or build a big restaurant on the sea, its simple, you write point of no return,’ he explained in an interview with Net2 TV monitored by MyNewsGh.com.
According to the Assin central MP, he gets sad anytime he sees the Castles being wasted away envisaging that he will; reap more cash than the House of Chiefs and CEDECOM get if they agree to bet with him by selling the Castles to him.
He continued that, a play should be enacted about the slaves for tourists when they visit the Castles with charges ranging from 100 dollars upwards explaining that the era of people explaining the conditions in which the slaves were sold is over.
‘The tickets will include the play and the restaurant services, you can charge about 100 dollars, that is how you are going to make money,’ he said.
The two castles were used as trading points where slaves were kept before they were loaded onto ships and sold in the Americas.
