For developing the Public Private Partnership (PPP) for the improvement of tourism in Nigeria, the Nigerian Tourism Development Corporation (NTDC) has signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with International Tourist Choice Limited, for building a world class tourist village at Bwari in Nigeria.
The Acting Director-General of the corporation, Mrs. Mariel Rae-Omoh, in her speech expressed hopefulness about the project, which, according to her, will create jobs, wealth and bring in surge of foreign tourists to Nigeria. She wanted to ensure a congenial relationship with the private sector and stakeholders in the Nigerian tourism industry.
Rae-Omoh said that NTDC and ICT managements would meet every six month to evaluate the progress of the project. The Bwari Tourism Village project is not for the people of Bwari Local Government Area and the FCT only, but for the whole country and the world at large. This tourist village, once completed, will fortify Nigeria’s image in the world tourism map. It will serve as a cultural liaison office for states in the country and nations in the world. It will make Nigeria a preferred tourism spot in Africa.
