ABUJA – Mr Chibuzor Udebuani, the President, National Association of Parks and Gardens Owners, on Monday said the World Economic Forum scheduled to hold in Abuja would impact positively on their businesses.
Udebuani said told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Abuja that although most gardens would not host the visitors, their presence would boost tourism in the FCT.
“If the visitors were coming to visit some of the gardens, government would have informed us.
“But there is nothing like that for now,” Udebuani said.
He, however, noted that the level of insecurity in the FCT had reached an alarming rate.
He called on Nigerians to collaborate with the government in the fight against insurgency, saying that insurgency was detrimental to their businesses.
Mr Villa Silvano, the Park Manager, Millennium Park, Abuja said adequate security had been put in place for security of individuals who might wish to visit.
Silvano, however, said the management of parks had not been communicated on the possibility of the forum delegates visiting the park.
The Federal Government had issued a statement that government offices and schools should not open from May 8 to May 10, to ease traffic when the World Economic Forum will hold. (NAN)
