The Nigerian Union of Journalists, Anambra Council Chairman, Emeka Odogwu, has tasked the Anambra state government to take the development of tourism sites as core area of revenue generation and job creation.
Odogwu who gave the charge during the council’s picnic at Ogbunike Cave and Waterfall, in Oyi Local Government Area this Thursday, as part of its 2022 Press Week activities says well-developed tourist sites across the globe have remained major sources of income to nations, and thinks Anambra should not be left out in harnessing its natural endowment to benefit the populace saying Anambra is blessed with so much of such natural and tourist sites.
The Anambra NUJ Chairman says the sites require government’s attention in terms of renovation and maintenance, to attract people which would in turn become a source of wealth generation for Anambra government.
Odogwu also says as people who work almost round the clock there is need for sites of relaxations with family members and friends after hard days, weeks, and months of struggles to meet up with life challenges and responsibilities.
He listed tourism sites in Anambra to include Igboukwu Museum, Ancient Kingdom Ogbunike Cave and Waterfall, Nri Ancient kingdom, Ogbunaka Waterfalls and Nnamdi Azikwe Statute which are located in various council areas of the state.
