Tourist centers are places that help connect people with nature and also generate revenue for the government. Tourism is an adventure that is not only filling but also gives people the needed exposure to life, the environment, and places that are famous. Here with us today is an icon, one that knows her onions and a strategic member of Nigeria politics. She runs her own tourist center and quite a productive one. Let’s join in the ride.
Welcome to honournaija_blog, can we meet you?
I’m Hon. Popoola Zainab Dayo, the CEO of Zenergy Tour, an Archaeologist and a member of the Oyo State Youth Parliament. I’m an advocate of African Cultural Heritage & I’m passionate about tourism. As an archaeologist, I have keen interest about promoting our heritage to the world through tourism education.
During my service year, I started Zenergy Tour, a tourism company fully registered by CAC & SMEDAN, in order to educate & expose tourists to an exhilarating adventure in Africa. Since its inception, it has made invaluable and culturally significant contributions, which led to the Yoruba Council of Youths Worldwide (YCYW) conferring it with the Omoluabi Brand of the Year award, Most Beautiful Yoruba Girl Achiever’s Award in 2022 and inter alia. As a member of the Oyo State Youth Parliament & the Secretary on Education, Culture and Tourism Committee, I have lend my voice via motions and discussions on promoting tourism & preserving tourist destinations in Oyo State.
This is beautiful and I am indeed honoured to host you. What inspired you to start this amazing business?
