Tourism NigeriaTourism, Arts and Culture have been identified as major catalysts for any growing economy and these are important for taking a country like Nigeria out of its present economic recession.

 
The founder of a Non Governmental Organisation, ZITADEL, Samuel Oluwadamilare Omorege, stated this in Akure, Ondo State capital during a press conference to launch Sustainable Tourism Art & Culture, Industrialisation Education Poverty (STACIEP).

 
Omorege advocated for more investment in tourism, arts and culture to tap the potential of this sector to enhance economic prosperity for the country. He also called on government assistance for preserving the traditional and cultural heritage of Nigeria which is important for eradicating poverty and for generating employment for the unemployed youths across the country.

 
He disclosed that ZITADEL is committed to showcasing the traditional and cultural heritage of Africa, especially Nigeria and sought collaborative efforts from all stakeholders to make the dream a reality.

 
To quote Omorege, “The total eradication of poverty is an essential condition for peaceful co-existence in a country of close to 200 million people like Nigeria. And without peace, sustainable development and sustainable comfortable lifestyle cannot be achieved. Nigeria as it is today is in dire need of a culture of peace and non-violence. Whereas one simplistic approach to the problem is to actively encourage the culture of appreciating of each others’ cultural, ethnic and linguistic diversity”.
