    National summit on culture and tourism: is this not another waste of resources? You don’t talk about tourism in the face of high level insecurity due to Boko Haram, kidnapping and killings by herdsmen, lack of electric power, fuel and extreme cost of living. The summit should be on how to alleviate the hardship in the land.
