We have so many places that are good for tourism in Nigeria but are undeveloped. The Ministers in charge of tourism should work more to leverage on this. It is a means for government to generate more income.

Insecurity in our country is a great setback to our tourist places and many things in this country. These places needs to be renovated to draw attention of more foreigners too and make the places a great one.

If the nation’s security had been better, the tourism industry would have brought in more money for the government. If it weren’t for the civil war, Nigeria would be one of the most popular tourist destinations in the world.

Nigeria is a place loading with so many resources. Our country is one of the most blessed countries in the world but we lack good leaders that can make judicious use of these resources to the benefit of the masses. We have so many tourist centers in Nigeria which our government can use to generate more income for the country. It is well with this Nigeria.

As beautiful as this places are, I’m sure we’ll have less than 10% of people from the world that will be willing to visit this places because everyone gets to hear the news about Nigeria . So before the government starts paying attention to tourism they should first pay attention to the security issue
