Lagos State Commissioner for Culture and Tourism, Mr Steve Ayorinde

Lagos state to inaugurate first-ever tourism calendar, says Commissioner

The Lagos State Commissioner for Culture and Tourism, Mr Steve Ayorinde, says the state has concluded plans to inaugurate its first ever tourism calendar.

Ayorinde said this at the 2018 Tourism Innovation and Development Advantage (TIDA) held in Lagos on Thursday.

The TIDA conference is an initiative of Skyview Communications with the theme: "Impact of Tourism Development on The Nigerian Economy".

Ayorinde said the tourism calendar would showcase various tourism activities planned for the year.

"This is the first of its kind; the calendar will show plans, venues and dates of festivals, carnivals and conferences.

"It will also provide guides on how tourists, visitors and the public can enjoy such events," he said.

The commissioner said the idea behind the calendar was borne out of the need to encourage the development of tourism potential of the nation.

"There is a lot we can do if we get a lot of mappings and communications right.

"Nigeria is a home of tourism and entertainment, but we are not ready for the business aspect of it, which includes availability of hotels in tourist locations.

Also, Mr Muyiwa Oladipo, the Ogun Commissioner for Culture and Tourism, said tourism had been relegated to the background in the country.

"Tourism right now is nothing to write home about but in five to ten years time, it will be celebrated and sought after. (NAN)
