Bolaji Seun

  NT: What is your name?

BS: My name is Bolaji Seun, I am a tourist

 NT: When did you start travelling and how many places have you being to?

 BS: : I started travelling  since 2013 and I have been to many places

 NT:  Which of your trip is most memorable and can you share your experience with us?

BS:  The Most memorable trip is the Obudu Mountain Resort. It is a nice and great place to be. I have great experience about the place.  The people there are friendly and lovely, there are great attractive mountains and waterfalls and so on there

 NT: Do you travel alone or do you travel with organised group tours

 BS:  Sometime I do travel alone. I enjoyed travelling alone because am more comfortable and free. I sometimes do travel with my fellow tourist group.

NT: Nigeria is  considered to be a security risk country, do you agree with such school of taught ? What’s your opinion about security in Nigeria for anyone who wants to go on a tour or vacation both inbound and Outbound?

  •   BS: That is the opinions of some people outside Nigeria. This is due to the negative Media information.  “Nigeria is really safe and its a peaceful place to live in and I  have brought many foreigners here without any problems and they go back to tell their friends how safe Nigeria is”. Nigeria is not the way some people perceive it to be. The only place that was affected was the North East during the Boko Haram insurgence. But it is safe now as the  government has being able to restore peace.

NT: Do you have a favourite tourist site you will love to visit over and over again. How will you sell that tourist site to convenience someone to come.

BS:  Ha ha I have lots of favourite sites in Nigeria and I would love to visit them again and again, but                   my favourite site is the IDANRE HILLS which is the magical hills. I will really convince someone to come there because of the attractive hills. My pictures alone will convince anyone.

The ones  I snapped there when I posted it on my Facebook page, my friends were asking me Bolaji where is this, is this Nigeria?   Please take me there. And so on ha ha!

NT:   Can you tell us some of the challenges you have encountered  during your trips around             Nigeria and any peculiar observations?

BS:  Some of the challenges I encountered during my great exploit around Nigeria is the           transportation system and the distance and stress, interestingly they are all part of the package and fun..  While tourist sites are not functioning well. It is a quite a challenge.

NT:  Have you attended any Festival in Nigeria?  If yes which one and can you Share your                                      experience with us?

Osu- Oshogbo Festival

 

BS:  The Osun Osogbo is a very nice and attractive festival in Nigeria which attract a lot of people around the world and it is a great pleasures to be there, I met with different people from different Countries when I last attended.

NT: All through your travels around Nigeria can you tell us  about the Hospitality. Are people receptive or cold towards Visitors?

         BS: All through my trips around Nigeria, the people I met are nice and lovely, Cross River people are lovely. There is an elderly man I met at the Obudu Mountain Resort when my friend and I interviewed him, he was a very pleasant elderly man, he offer us drinks and I snapped pics with him.

NT: Do you think that the tourism sector can provide that alternative source of revenue and create jobs  that many Nigerians so desire and how can we achieve that?          

BS: Yes of course, look at other Africa Countries like Morocco, Tunisia, Tanzania, Kenya, Republic of Seychelles in East Africa, and South Africa to say the least, these Countries are generating  income through tourism and they know the importance of tourism because tourism is a multidisciplinary with many industries and disciplines coming together to contribute to and benefiting from it. This has helped to develop their Country and they have really focused on tourism. Nigeria can also generate great  income through tourism if the Federal government can re-brand, package and market some of  these tourist attractions.

Tourism can generate  employment for youths. The government have a great role to play by                         creating the enabling environment for the industry to thrive. Basic infrastructures such as                          good and accessible road to the sites, constant energy

which will help to reduce the high cost of                  hotels and a well organised transport system. We need good Policies to be implemented to drive the industry and allow Public and private partnership work. Let government support and encourage private Sector participation. With this lots of Jobs will be created as People are trained to enhance their skills to take care of the tourists

 

  NT: Will you like to briefly share your experience so we can appreciate Nigerian Culture and             tourism

BS:   Knowing about other people’s culture is the best thing that has ever happened in my travel                           experience and I respect and valued people’s culture because  our cultures defines where we come from.
