FG SAYS NIGERIA SAFE TO HOST GLOBAL TOURISM CONFERENCE

The Federal Government says that the country is safe to host the first Global Conference on Cultural Tourism and Creative Industry scheduled for November 14 to November 17 in Lagos.

The Minister of Information and Culture Alhaji Lai Mohammed said this when he featured on a phone-in programme on the Radio Nigeria monitored.

It was gathered that Nigeria was given the hosting right for the maiden global event by the United Nations World Tourism Organisation at a meeting held at the organisation’s headquarters in Spain on April 19, 2022.

Mohammed said the insinuation in certain quarters that participants and tourists would not attend the conference because of stories of killings and kidnappings in the country are erroneous.

He said, “The security challenges Nigeria is facing did not start today and I must say the Federal Government is rising very stoutly to it.

“We cannot say just because we have insecurity challenges, other sectors of the economy should not be developed.

“The entire world is aware of the challenges we are facing, yet we were singled out for the hosting of the very first global conference and that speaks volumes.

“That is why Nigerians should get out the negativity and look at the positive aspect of it.”

The minister said that insecurity is a global challenge and countries with worse situations than Nigeria were developing their tourism potential.
