The Niger State government has said insecurity is one of the major challenges militating against the promotion of tourism sites in the state.
The Commissioner for Culture and Tourism, FATIMA ADAMU, who spoke on Wednesday during the 2023 World Tourism Day celebration with the theme, ‘Tourism and Green Investment’, said there were tourism sites in some Local Government Areas that could have been opened as tourism attractions but insecurity was a hindrance.
According to her, tourism could have been a veritable source of revenue for the state but the activities of bandits were preventing it.
Her words, “My challenges in promoting tourism in Niger State are funding and insecurity because some of those places cannot be assessed because of the insecurity, most especially the Kwangugari site. The Kwangugari site is where we have the Gadan Allah.
