In the test of knowledge and deliberate effort at making the beauty and greatness of Nigeria evident, Project Tour, a tourism initiative has kicked off a campaign tagged: National Bragging Right (Discovering the extraordinary).

Speaking at the event in Abuja, on the conception of the initiative, Founder/Project Initiator, Omoefe Tawiyah said , ProjectTour Nigeria is resource platform where Nigerians can access information on tourism and entertainment.
He said: “This initiative is about showcasing our rich endowment to push Nigeria to a higher international standard and letting the people to know that we are a blessed country and we are actually the giant of Africa. We are concerned about projecting talents coming from our country.”
Guest Speaker, a reknowned nollywood actor Francis Duru, in his remarks, expressed excitement over for the launch of the programme, saying there’s was no better time than now.

It’s time for us to own Nigeria. We should all have something positive to brag about this country. Let’s all support this laudable cause.”
