1 min read

The Ooni of Ife, Oba Adeyeye Ogunwusi has urged banks, cooperate bodies to support locally produced products to boost the nation’s tourism industry.

The royal father spoke during a three-day Adire exhibition tagged: “Adire Lagos Experience”, organised by Adire Odua in collaboration with Ecobank in Lagos.

The exhibition which started on Friday June 10, will end on Sunday, June 12.
He said, “I am really impressed with what I’ve seen here today. I have seen real tourism potentials that needed to be explored by others.

“If as a country we look inward, we would discover that our tourism advantages are enormous and desire immediate attention.
“We can create exportable merchandise if we join hands to boost our potential, we would not be looking up to foreign currency to boost our economy.

“As one of the pioneer promoters of Adire, I am positive that it can boost the county’s tourism industry, because it has what it takes to meet international textile standard.

“The unique thing about this Adire production is that everything is assembled locally – raffias, ropes, bamboos, chemicals are gotten from our forest.
