The Ghana Hotels Association has announced that the hospitality Industry in the Volta and Eastern Regions have been heavily impacted as a resulted of the spillage of the Akosombo and Kpong Dams.
While the current inflow to the reservoir is pegged at 400,000 cubic feet of water per second, the authority says it is spilling just about 183,000 cubic feet of water, and they cannot ascertain when the spilling exercise will be over.
Speaking to Joy Business President of the association, Dr. Edward Ackah-Nyamike Jnr. Said hotels and recreational centers along the lake have been badly affected.
“The impact has been mainly on the operational areas, the outdoor sitting areas have generally been affected. It has also affected patronage of these hotels for obvious reasons. So it’s obvious these hotels at the river banks will have a lot of challenges from the spillage”, he stressed.
