In the light of this, he said “from our entertainment menu, we have a range of variety to choose from. It is all in our collective quest to return the state to its No 1 place in all ramifications.”

To this end, the commissioner revealed  that night life will soon return to Aba. As  part of the plans, he said that Hotel Proprietors Association in Aba is organising what is tagged ‘Bringing Back Night Life In Aba’ to hold on December 3.

That the state is endowed with tourist attractions is public knowledge, he continued,  adding that’, “however for benefit of doubt we have the legendry Long Juju of Arochukwu, the stunning Wooden cave in Amakanma in Umuahia South where the state government held this year’s World Tourism Day.

It is on record that for the first time, World Tourism Day celebration was taken to a natural site, the natural blue water in Azumini in Ukwa, the War Museum. These are places to be for your Christmas thrill and fun to the fullest.

“The mother of them all”, the commissioner said, “is the Ugwu Abia cultural display. It is a cultural carnival of a kind which showcases the rich cultures of our people in the state. I will say without mincing words that it is the pride of the government in the sense that it is the window through which our cultural heritage is shown to the whole world. I am not sounding too ambitious to say that also via this vista we will put Abia state on the world map.”
