THE Anambra State Government says it is ready to partner with corporate bodies to improve tourism and make it more lucrative to the state.
The Commissioner for Indigenous Art Works and Diaspora Affairs, Christian Madubuko, gave the assurance in Awka while receiving the African Heritage and Tourism Movement, AHTOM, during a courtesy visit to his office.
Madubuko noted that the tourism industry is lucrative abroad and the Ministry under his watch will improve and bring about more recognition.
He assured the group, a Non-Governmental Organisation, that he would personally take them round different tourism sites in the state.
“Anambra has Obinikpa triple stem exotic palm at Obinikpa Village in Ndikelionwu which would need to be showcased.
“Other tourism sites are Owerre-Ezukala Cave and Waterfall, Agulu Lake, Amiagba Lake in Abatete and many others.’’
The leader of the group, Onochie Aghadi, said that the group’s main aim for the visit was to help to promote tourism and make it more lucrative in the state.
Aghadi noted that Anambra was blessed with natural tourist sites that need to be projected to the world so as to attract visitors and investors to the industry.
A member of the group and presenter at the City Radio 89.7FM Onitsha, Chinedu Egwuatu, told the commissioner that the station anchors programmes that promote Anambra culture and tourism.
He, however, appealed to the commissioner to feature as a guest in one of the programmes.
