Africa Region President of World Crafts Council and Director General, National Council for Arts and Culture (NCAC), Otunba Segun Runsewe says Nigeria will become the best cultural tourism destination in the next few years.
Speaking at a global people to people and cultural tourism panel gathering in China on Wednesday, Otunba segun Runsewe explained that Nigeria was a notable key player in African affairs and its premium relationship with world economies.
He said Nigeria’s role necessitated certain organised dark syndicates in black Africa to target Nigerian passport and use same to ferment unacceptable business deals and related sundry crime.
Waiting for the Chinese investors
Runsewe threw more light to help restore global perception of Nigeria as destination for drugs and internet fraud urging the Chinese to disregard negative narratives about Nigeria.
I bring you kind greetings from Nigeria and Africa and wish to correct the wrong impression and misleading narrative about Nigeria and Africa in general as destination for illegal drugs and terrorism. Nigeria is a wonderful country with rich culture which frowns at acts unbecoming of best human practices, Runsewe emphasised.
The NCAC boss explained and thanked the organisers for inviting him to share his story about Nigeria, clarifying that Nigeria is hospitable, with a rich cultural tourism destination waiting for the Chinese investors and tourists.
Stakeholders who spoke later commended the frank contributions and explanations by Runsewe which they claimed would open up the flood gate of business and cultural understanding between Nigeria and China.
