Tourism Industry Has a Great Potential to Enhance the Economy

In its search for alternative sources of revenue besides oil trade, Nigeria targets to enhance its tourism industry in order to build the wealth of the nation. This will be represented in several sectors such as construction where infrastructure and multi-nodal transportation systems will be built. This move will also reduce unemployment rate as jobs will be created due to increasing demand for telecoms and financial services, furniture and furnishing, food, garments and handicraft among other professions. In fact, Nigeria has some of the world’s renowned heritage sites such as the Osun-Osogbo Sacred Groove in Osun State, the Ogba Ukwu Cave/Waterfalls and the Ogbunike Cave in Anambra State, and the Kano City Wall and others.
