20 Must Visit Destinations in Nigeria

The reliance on oil is fast dwindling. Nigeria needs to diversify her economy as a matter of urgency.

As we celebrate 20 years of creative enterprise under the strong support and partnership of the Federal Ministry of Information and Culture, NTA, the largest TV network in Africa, NIHOTOUR, NFVCB, National Arts Theatre; more discerning organizations have locked into the opportunity to add value through our platform.

In this regard, Goge Africa and Actors Guild of Nigeria have formed a STRATEGIC PARTNERSHIP to promote Tourism in Nigeria/Africa. Goge Africa’s management affirms the need for the private sector to intervene strategically and timely, towards the diversification of Nigeria’s economy. For over 2 decades, Goge Africa and AGN have been in the forefront of promoting the best of Nigeria’s culture and tourism potentials. Both organizations have been great ambassadors of Nigeria through their related and laudable positive representations within and outside the continent of Africa

The focal TV series titled 20-MUST VISIT DESTINATIONS in Nigeria is another winner from the stables of Goge Africa culture and travel TV series.  The series is carefully conceptualized to project the best of our cultural heritage, our people, tourism potential and opportunities for investment, at every location mapped out as a MUST VISIT. It is an opportunity to celebrate our heritage, abundant natural resources and human capital.

Such focus will bolster the tourism sector into becoming a key economic factor. The TV series will also feature interviews with the Executive Governors of select states to speak on plans for the state and incentives for interested investors in specific areas of the State’s economy.

Broadcast shall be via Goge Africa on NTA Network, online and 15 other TV Channels within and outside Nigeria. Aside English version, we have concluded plans to translate the series into Hausa language and other languages subsequently. Presently Goge Africa TV series has since been translated into Hausa language and is broadcast on AREWA 24 Channel 261 on DSTV.

Please note that “20 MUST-VISIT DESTINATIONS” started last year with our visit to Senegal, Benin Republic, Jamaica, Haiti and Cozumel Mexico.
