Tourism: Plateau Govt. Woos Investors

The Plateau Government on Tuesday urged investors to come, explore and exploit the vast tourism potentials in the state.
The state’s Commissioner for Tourism and Hospitality, Mr John Mwankom, made the call in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Jos.
Mwankon said that the state was desirous of boosting its tourism sector to maintain its niche as the haven of tourism in the country.
According to him, the state is endowed with good climatic conditions, unique cultural festivals and heritage that were flash points of tourists’ delight.
Nwankom promised that the state government would create an enabling environment for investors in the sector by providing security for lives and property.
He added that it would also operate an open door policy and collaborate, where required.
“We want to regain our glory as the haven of tourism in the country, because we have unique cultural heritage and a climatic environment obtainable only in the western world.
“The fortunes of the state will be channelled to tourism to boost the sector, which will undoubtedly have multiplier effects on other sectors in the state.
“Tourism facilitates development; through road construction, remote areas become accessible. It will also give a source of livelihood to our people that will improve their standard of living,’’ the commissioner said.
He added that improvement in the tourism sector would boost commercial activities and ensure that farmers have access roads to take their produce to the markets.
The commissioner noted that investment in the sector would reduce overdependence on oil, thereby, providing more revenue for development projects. (NAN)
