The Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, has said the Federal Government’s Visa-On-Arrival Policy has started yielding fruits, especially in the tourism sector which has been boosted by the policy.
The Minister made the assertion in Abuja on Monday, when he received members of the Latin America Motorcyclists Association (LAMA), who are in Nigeria for a tour of heritage sites and other tourist attractions in the country.
”All our visitors here today got visa on arrival. That shows that the Federal Government’s visa-on-arrival policy is working,” he said.
Alhaji Mohammed said the presence of the international bikers in Nigeria is a testimony to the fact that the Administration’s quest to promote the country’s cultural heritage and tourism sites is yielding fruits.
”As you tour Nigeria, under the ‘Rediscover Heritage Bikers Tour of Nigeria’, and visit historical heritage sites, you beam the searchlight on those sites for the world to see.
“You will see these heritage sites for yourselves as you travel through our culturally-rich and diverse nation. These sites include museums, monuments, homes of national heroes and other tourist sites,”
