Discovery Of Oil And Gas, Nigeria’s Greatest Misfortune – Ooni

Published

on

The Ooni of Ife,  Oba Enitan Ogunwusi, has  identified the discovery of oil and gas as the greatest misfortune that has ever befallen Nigeria as a nation.

Ogunwusi said this late yesterday, during  a courtesy visit by  the National Executive of Nigeria Tour Operators (NATOP) to his palace in Ile-Ife.

The executive members were led  by Mrs Bilikisu Abdul,  NATOP’s President and accompanied by  some journalists.

The traditional ruler said that Nigerians had failed to develop the tourism potential in the country due to the discovery of  crude oil.

”As a nation, our biggest problem has remained the  discovery of oil; we have different tourism products rich in content which are nature based, tourism is not exhaustible but oil is.

”It is important for us to propagate domestic tourism, it is the future of the country and that is the way things can get better.

”We should encourage people to  travel within the confines of the nation, we should focus on things nature has blessed us with and take away every negative charge in us.

”Tourism is something I am very passionate about, I don’t joke with it so let us all collectively groom it together,” he said.
