As part of activities marking this year’s Valentine Day in Ghana known as National Chocolate Day, dubbed ‘Love Chocolate, Love Adventure’, the staff of the Ghana Tourism Authority and some media practitioners as well as students from the Atibie Nursing Training College, went on an adventurous trip to the Air Jays at Obo in the Kwahu South District of the Eastern Region.
They were led by the Regional Director of the Ghana Tourism Authority, Frederick Adjei–Rudolf, to climb the 877 Endurance Steps to the hill which is about one thousand feet high before walking on the canopy bridges. They also took part in the Zipline Adventure.
Addressing the participants after the exercise, Mr Adjei–Rudolf commended them for their zeal in participating in that scary but interesting trip which also served as an exercise for them to burn some of the calories in their bodies.
He advised the students to serve as ambassadors and educate the public to erase the negative perception that Valentine Day is used for immoral activities such as sexual intercourse and alcoholism.
Instead, Mr Adjei- Rudolf said, they should use the day to demonstrate charity to others and refrain from vices. He later presented pieces of chocolates to all the participants to commemorate the National Chocolate Day slated for February 14 every year in Ghana since 2007.
