With tourism emerging as one of the leading service industries in the global economy in recent decades, I was pleased to inaugurate the FCT Tourism Advisory Committee, yesterday.
This inauguration is a significant boost in the tourism development industry in the Federal Capital Territory, since the FCT is one of the ancient cities in Nigeria where a lot of tourism potential abounds.
Our natural resources in the FCT are of high quality and have the potentials for domestic and export markets. Some of these endowments include marble, clay, stones, micra, wolframite, tantalite, sand among others.
I further charged members of the committee to work assiduously to achieve the task ahead to justify the burden of trust placed on them.
