The Planning Committee of this year’s Asogli Te-Za has hinted of plans of making the celebration the biggest, rivalling the Calabar Carnival in Nigeria.
The 2018 Te-Za, formerly the Asogli Yam Festival also marks the 15th anniversary of the enstoolment of Togbe Afede XIV, Agbogbomefia of Asogli.
Brigadier General Martin Koku Ahiaglo,(Rtd), Chairman of the Planning Committee in a media interaction, said just as the Calabar Carnival had made the Calabar state a hub for tourism and hospitality in Nigeria and Africa, the Asogli Te-Za (ATZ) was being repackaged to change the “character of festivals” in Ghana.
“Te-Za is unique so we are working hard to use this year’s celebration and Agbogbomefia’s 15 years to make Ho tourism destination of choice,” he stated.
Brig. Gen. Ahiaglo said the festival would also serve as an annual stocktaking of occupational endeavours, especially farming and help mobilise human and material resources for job and wealth creation.
