Nigerian tourism sector would generate billions of dollars in revenue and many celebrities have urged the government to harness its potential.

Over $1.1 billion was reportedly generated by the tourism sector in 2015 from over 6 million visitors, and $853 million from 4.8 million visitors in 2014.

According to an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN), Flavour and Patoranking responded.

Flavour said;

If you look around most African countries, they have started working on their hospitality business for revenue generation. I think it is time for us to take a cue from that.

“Those countries can hardly organise a show without inviting Nigerian artistes – comedians and musicians – and the reception is always great. Before other African nations beat us to it, I think it’s time we beef up our tourism and entertainment industry.

Patoranking added:

The security situation in the country is not as bad as portrayed, but a lot still needs to be done to create a better platform for our God-given resources that visitors need to see.

What do you think? Do they have a point? Let us know in the comments below.
