IN just four months, the Minister of Tourism, Mrs. Lola Ade-John has orchestrated a transformational journey in Nigeria’s tourism landscape, leaving an indelible mark despite facing adversity. Appointed as the pioneer minister of a standalone tourism ministry, her visionary leadership has set a new standard for excellence.

Amidst her temporary indisposition, Mrs. Ade-John’s dedication remains unwavering. She became the beacon of Community Tourism, as she traversed over 12 states in eight weeks spreading the tourism gospel of President Bola Ahmed Tinubu. Her commitment to engaging directly with communities exemplifies her hands-on approach and passion for inclusivity.

Under her stewardship, sustainable tourism policies have flourished through initiatives like the Eco-Genesis Incubator Programme, Mobile Culinary Events and Community Tourism projects. By breathing life into the National Meeting of Tourism Minister and Commissioners, she fosters collaboration and cohesion at the highest levels.

As another testament to her strategic foresight, Minister Ade-John initiated a comprehensive review of the National Tourism Master Plan, ensuring alignment with evolving industry dynamics. Furthermore, her proactive engagement with strategic stakeholders and private tourism associations underscores her commitment to collective progress.

Breaking new ground, she has adeptly integrated tourism with financial institutions, broadening avenues for tourism embodies the essence of leadership, competence, and resilience. Her unwavering dedication to advancing Nigerian tourism sets a standard of excellence for generations to come. We extend our heartfelt gratitude to President Tinubu for appointing such a fit and proper leader to steer Nigeria’s tourism journey towards unprecedented heights.
