The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that the AGM is aimed at marketing tourism attractions within Kwara.
The Minister, in a statement, expressed excitement at NATOP’s strategy to promote tourism through its AGM.

She assured the association of her support and attendance.
She hinted on the ministry’s intention to identify heritage sites across the nation by partnering with states to attract investors.
She said the AGM would help the ministry to actualise these plans seamlessly in Kwara.

Earlier, Udo notified the Minister about the AGM as she extended an invitation to her.
