It is not the duty of any government to sponsor Carnivals more so in a country riddled with poverty.
It should be sponsored by companies and rich individuals as well as those who wish to showcase their products and culture.
One wonders if this government actually knows the depth of poverty and hunger in this country while they are busy pandering to the desire of those who have milked the country dry and wish to copy rich countries.
And there is no point claiming it will boost tourism because nobody will come on a tour to Nigeria with the level of insecurity in the country and risk being shot down by the country’s security agents or kidnapped.
These politicians should stop deceiving themselves. The world hold Nigeria in contempt because they have pushed individuals into all sorts of criminal activities to survive and/or belong.
