Nollywood superstar Omotola Jalade-Ekeinde has expressed concern over poor maintenance of some tourist sites in the country.
The actress stated this while on the set of a movie production, ‘Shadow Parties’, at Olumirin Water Falls in Erin Ijesha, Osun state.
She described the waterfalls as ”such a breathtaking #tourist destination that needs maintenance and promotion!
”I’ve paid to visit less awesome places in the world,” Jalade-Ekeinde posted on her instagram page @realomosexy.
Omotola, who describes herself as an ‘intense tourist’, said, ”I look forward to a time when tourism and entertainment would take their pride of place for Nigeria.”
”We need to preserve and commercialise these opportunities with private investors. This will boost income, travel, peace, employment and decrease crime…”
She also suggested positive steps that could be taken to revamp the sector.
”Regulate pricing so it does not become unaffordable to the masses, create competition between states to see which would bring in more, and get worthy and passionate faces/ambassadors to attract interests.
”Compete internationally, brutally and stop the mediocrity,” she said.
