The Director-General, National Council for Arts and Culture, Otunba Runsewe, has said that culture and tourism, when promoted, would earn more revenue than oil.
Runsewe stated this in Jos, at the maiden Plateau Tourism Conference, which has its theme: “Unlocking the Vast Potentials of Tourism as a Financial Option for Sustainable Socio-economic Development.”
According to him, oil is exhaustible while culture is not. He said that culture and tourism was one sector that could reduce crime, unemployment and infighting among Nigerians.
Runsewe explained all that is needed is the right analysis to identify the challenges and work out ways to tackle them. He said that Plateau state could make a difference for Nigeria the same way Dubai made a difference for United Arab Emirate, UAE.
Managing Director, Danira Tourism, Scotland, UK, Benjamin Carey, said that Nigeria needed to create synergies with other countries for its tourism sector to grow.
