  2. Wow! You are doing a great job. You are making the world see Nigeria in a bright light.
    Kudos to your photograph of Ibadan Cityscape. I had never seen Ibadan that way before.

  3. If you mentioned Ibono beach in Akwaibom and Tourist beach in phc without mentioning the scintilating and breath taking but awe inspiring natural sandy beaches in Finima bonny island in rivers state, then I beg you to do more work by coming here to see things for yourself. Bonny island is the only 100% island in Nigeria.

    • We do not appreciate places in our own country. We cherish foreign things. It must be Dubai or Disney. Recently it was imported virus (ebola). I hope we appreciate that too.

  6. You tried but missed kura falls, farin ruwa falls, Riyom rock, kerang hills, shere hills, pungu springs, Plateau edge, jos museum, motna and Ampidong crater lake etc all in Plateau state.

  7. You obviously missed out sphere hills, riyom rocks ant the museum of traditional Nigerian architecture MOTNA, all in plateau state. This list wouldn’t be complete without these great sites

  8. You don’t even look at the northern part of Ondo State where we have Oke-Maria in Oka-Akoko, Ebomi lake in Ifira-Akoko, Oke-Oka in Oka-Akoko, Ojomirin spring, among others

Have something to say...
