Oyo State Government

Oyo State Government will play host to the international tourism summit between April 17 and 18, 2024 to showcase its tourism endowments to the world.

The event, which will have in attendance representatives of embassies, leading lights in tourism, financial institutions as well as members of the international community, is also meant to attract investors who will develop the state’s tourist sites to international standards.

Oyo State governor, ‘Seyi Makinde, who is the host of the summit, has repeatedly expressed the intention of his administration to make tourism a major economic pillar in the state.

To this end, he carved out the Ministry of Culture and Tourism from the Ministry of Information through an executive order last year.

The summit is scheduled to hold at the International Conference Centre, University of Ibadan.

The state government has constituted a seven-man committee headed by the Commissioner for Culture and Tourism, Dr Wasiu Olatubosun, to midwife the summit.

Other members of the committee are, Hon Akinola Ojo, Commissioner for Finance; Dr Debo Akande, Executive Adviser to the Governor on International Relations; Dr Morounkola Thomas, Special Adviser, Socio-Economic Development; Mr Tilewa Folami, Director General, Oyo State Investment and Public-Private Partnership Agency (OYSIPA); Mr Sulaimon Olanrewaju, Special Adviser (Media) and Ms Abigail Anaba, Head of Content Marketing, Slvr Wlf.

The committee has since commenced operation.
