Published on : Tuesday, June 11, 2019

Omolara Adagunodo, the Managing Director of Jumia’s hotel and flight marketplace, has created a tourism program for the administration of new Governor of Lagos State, His Excellency, Babajide Sanwo-Olu.

 

In a press statement requested by Adagunodo on the governor to aim on sustainable tourism to additionally boost up the chances of Lagos turning out to be a 21st-century economy, take the Nigerian tourism industry to the next level and make sure that the sector contributes more to the Gross Domestic Product of the state.

 

“Like the previous Lagos administration, I am happy that the new government featured tourism as one of its developmental agenda. As the government is settling down to work, I encourage the administration to concentrate on Sustainable Tourism.”

 

“This is because the next phase of tourism is for it to become sustainable, and for Lagos to establish a robust tourism industry, it requires a roadmap that takes full account of tourism’s current and future economic, social and environmental impacts, addressing the needs of visitors, the industry, the environment and host communities.”

 

“In fact, a combined report by the United Nations World Tourism Organisation, International Trade Centre and Enhanced Integrated Framework (EIF) reveal that tourism (sustainable) is widely recognized as a key sector for achieving the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), given its major potential to contribute to jobs and wealth creation in the developing world. Tourism is estimated to represent 10 percent of global GDP and generates directly or indirectly one in ten jobs globally.”

 

“Interestingly, the development agenda of the Governor is geared towards achieving sustainable tourism. Tagged Project THEME, the administration’s pillars of development will focus on traffic and transportation, health and the environment, education and technology,” she said.

 

Adagunodo further added that besides sustainable tourism, the government has plans to invest particularly in infrastructure, facelift the tourism assets of the state, look into taxation challenges in the hospitality industry as well as the ratings and classification of hotels.
