Patoranking, Flavour urge FG on Nigeria’s tourism
Nigeria’s tourism sector has huge potentials if tapped into.The duo of Patoranking and Flavour urged the Federal Government to grow the sector so as to generate more money
According to Flavour :”If you look around most African countries, they have started working on their hospitality business for revenue generation. I think it is time for us to take a cue from that. Those countries can hardly organise a show without inviting Nigerian artistes – comedians and musicians – and the reception is always great. Before other African nations beat us to it, I think it’s time we beef up our tourism and entertainment industry ”
For Patoranking, there has to be an -up-to-date-directory of hotels and lodges in the country in the interest of tourists.
“The security situation in the country is not as bad as portrayed, but a lot still needs to be done to create a better platform for our God-given resources that visitors need to see,” he said.
The tourism sector was reported to have generated over $1.1 billion in 2015 from over 6 million visitors, and $853 million from 4.8 million visitors in 2014.
