Addressing insecurity is paramount if we want to build a tourist industry 

By Ayo Akinfe 

(1) Of late, insecurity has become a serious issue in Nigeria.

By Ayo Akinfe 

(1) It is the rainy season in Nigeria again and as ever, we are once more subjected to annual flooding. Can we just put things into perspective, it is not as if we suffer from Monsoon storms or La Niña, it is just that there is no drainage to carry away excess water.
