House Committee Chairman on Tourism Arts and Culture, Hon. Fatai Oluwa, who raised the motion, said it seeks to focus on developing tourism after the coronavirus pandemic.

Oluwa said as Nigeria’s biggest city, Lagos should be able to generate more revenue from that state’s prospects.

"The House passed the Lagos State Tourism Agency Law 2018 in order to develop tourism investment, which aims to enhance revenue generation. Unfortunately, this law is yet to be implemented,” he noted.
