The Lagos State Commissioner for Tourism, Mr. Folorunsho Folarin-Coker, has beckoned on tourism investors to embrace the opportunities in the centre of excellence to establish leisure and tourism facilities, reports NaijaAgroNet.
He made this call at the official commissioning of the redeveloped Apapa Amusement Park at the weekend, urging investors to take advantage of investment friendly environment provided by the current administration and invest in the state.
He described the new park as another significant step by the present administration to use Tourism, Hospitality, Entertainment and Sports (THES) as a tool to stimulate the economy of the State.
The Commissioner said that the park used to be the number one leisure spot for family entertainment, recreation and relaxation in Lagos, but suffered depreciation and as such the value derived from visiting the park diminished.
He also said the State Government in conjunction with other stakeholders and a new concessionaire took interest and resuscitated the park, noting that the park now offers Lagosians an opportunity for the regeneration of family values and bonding as the facilities provided would go a long way to stimulate the mind through recreation and entertainment.
