THE Minister of Solid Mineral Development, Mr. Dele Alake, has committed to supporting the development of tourism in Ekiti State. This pledge was made during his recent visit to the Adire Ekiti Hub, where he accompanied the Vice President, H.E. Kashim Shetima.

During the visit, Mr. Alake stopped by the stand mounted by the Ekiti State Bureau of Tourism Development and was given a detailed tour by the Director General of the Bureau, Barrister Wale Ojo-Lanre, who provided a comprehensive overview of the state’s tourism assets. Ojo-Lanre said although Ekiti is a landlocked state, he described it as having an immense tourism potential, and highlighted the various attractions and cultural heritage sites that position the state as a promising destination for both domestic and international tourists.

Mr. Alake expressed admiration for the Bureau’s efforts in promoting Ekiti’s tourism potential on a global scale, and praised the bureau for its proactive initiatives and assured that his ministry would support both the state and the bureau in their mission to advance tourism in Ekiti. To further this collaboration, Mr. Alake requested that Ojo-Lanre send him the tourism map of Ekiti State.

The minister’s promise of support is expected to significantly bolster Ekiti State’s tourism sector. This commitment is anticipated to attract further investments and initiatives aimed at transforming Ekiti into a leading tourism destination in Nigeria, thereby enhancing local economies, creating jobs, and preserving the state’s cultural heritage.
