ABSTRACT
This paper appreciates tourism among other economic sectors as a veritable economic industrythat can transform the socio-economic lives of a people that are faced with low per capitaincome, unemployment, poverty and economic malaise only if the tourism potential resources areidentified, harnessed, developed and packaged into a tourist product. The paper sees tourismdevelopment and promotion as a way of diversifying the nation’s mono cultural economy. Thechallenges here are not unconnected with those of unawareness of the large population, lack of leisure time and disposable income, security, financial and economic fraud, poor planning of the sector, non regulation and unco-ordinated approach to tourism matters by the public sector toencourage the private sector especially in pursuit of tourism organisation, development,accessibility, marketing, capacity building, investment, information, funding and legislationamong others. The paper also examined prospects of diversifying the industry identifying conducive environment created through the institutional structures to harness the available masstourism resources in the country, the formulated tourism policy and the development master plan,widespread investments in the travel, hospitality and tourism outfits, attitude of Nigerianstowards holiday and travels, existence of political and legislative instruments to fast track tourism programme implementation. The paper conclude that tourism if developed will add value to the national economy through job creation, foreign exchange generation hence solving most social, economic and political problems. Consequently, the paper recommend that despiteall the government’s efforts in transforming the tourism industry and the economy, it need a strong political will that shall pursue the backing and funding of the tourism policy, the reviewand the implementation of the 2006 tourism development master plan to organise and regulatethe industry for the well being of the citizens and the nation at large.
