Nigerian Senator urgesSen. Isiaka Adeleke, representing Osun West Senatorial District in the National Assembly, has advised Nigerians and governments at various levels to embrace local tourism for boosting economy of the country. Senator Adeleke said that tourism is a vital sector which can revive the economy of Nigeria and urged everyone to take interest in domestic tourism instead of spending huge resources on foreign ones.

 
The Senator said that Nigeria has huge tourism potential which hasn’t been fully utilized, citing examples of other countries which have sustained their economies via investment in the tourism sector, which has fetched better results.

 
There are many tourist sites in Nigeria which were not properly utilized. To quote Senator Adeleke, “it is good that we are diversifying our economy to meet the various challenges we are facing as a country. One of the key sectors we should not neglect is tourism. It is a viable sector if properly tapped and harnessed.

 

“Some African countries rely on their tourism potentials to boost their economy. People throughout the world spend huge sums of money on tourism because tourism is part of our day to day activities. If we encourage local tourism, it will help with the development of our local content. I believe the federal government and some state governments are already working assiduously to tap into the huge tourism potentials.”
