Nigeria’s minister for information and culture Lai Mohammed has assured Nigerians that despite the security challenges facing facing the country presently, Nigeria is in safe hands.

Mohammed, who stated this when he received in his office, the Oluyin of Iyin-Ekiti, His Royal Majesty, Oba Adeola Adeniyi Ajakaiye, stressed the need for leaders at all levels to give the people message of hope instead of making comments tcanhat  only aggravate tension.

He appealed to the monarch to work with his fellow traditional rulers, as well as the Government of Ekiti State, to ensure peace and security in the state.

The minister told the monarch that ahead of his visit to the Esa Cave and Okuta Abanijorin, the ministry will be sending the National Commission for Museums and Monuments(NCMM), a parastatal in charge of museums and historical sites in the country, to visit the two tourist sites in Iyin-Ekiti – Esa Cave and Okuta Abanijorin – and report back to him.

Mohammed, however, stressed that there can be no successful tourism without security. Hence, the need to ensure peace and tranquility in Ekiti state.

He noted that putting the Esa Cave and Okuta Abanijorin on the global tourism map will boost the diversification of the nation’s economy.
