According to The Guardian, the book is an international publication being put together to guide, educate and inform travellers and holiday makers worldwide about tourism facilities, centres and destinations in Nigeria.
Nigeria is set to have a travellers guide and tourism book as Nigerian Tourism Europe, is collaborating with Nigerian Tourism Development Corporation (NTDC) and Motoring World International to launch Nigeria Travellers Guide and Tourism book.
Current affairs, information about mineral and natural resources and their locations in different states, recreational centres, trending businesses in the country and tourist sites are just some of the things the book will contain.
Speaking on the project, Chief Executive Officer of Nigeria Tourism Europe, Prince Okes Masisma stated that the project aims to kick-start the development and growth of Nigeria’s tourism industry and showcase the country as a destination for holiday makers all over the world.
Describing it as “the kind of book that is supposed to be seen in all the airports in the world so that people coming to Nigeria get to know the country”, Masisma pointed out that other African countries have theirs and Nigeria shouldn’t be left out.
He also added that “given the continuing crash in oil price in the world market, now is the time for Nigeria to diversify and increase her sources of foreign exchange earnings.”
