Mustapha said places to visit in Oyo State included Ilaji Resort, Tunde Odunlade Art Gallery, Adamasigba Stadium and a whole lot of other fascinating sites.
” Oyo State and specifically Ibadan, is loaded with beautiful tourism sites in areas like medical, sports and cultural tourism.
” Ibadan has over 200 tourists’ sites beginning with a visit to one of its local cuisine, Amala and Gbegiri, which tourists look forward to enjoying.
” Life is all about creating memories, which makes life interesting and extraordinary; so I advise all to visit Ibadan,” she said.
Mustapha urged parents to engage their wards in exploring tourism sites within the country as this would enrich their knowledge of places.
She noted that this would also help to stabilise their emotions, regardless of what they might be going through.
Another tour operator, Mr Bethel Moseglad, Chief Executive Officer, Nature Connect, explained the fascinating sites to visit in Taraba state.
