FG Can’t License Hotels, Hospitality Operators, Says Fashola

Lagos State Governor, Mr. Babatunde Fashola (SAN), Monday asked the federal government to completely hand off from licensing hotels and hospitality centres, saying the recent Supreme Court judgment had clearly defined the roles and responsibilities of each level of government in the tourism industry.

The governor made the call at the State House, Alausa when he inaugurated the Hotel Grading and Classification Review and Appeal Committees, which he said, would afford tourists the opportunity to plan ahead before visiting the country.

Speaking at the event, Fashola tasked the federal government to effectively strengthen and fund its security agencies at the country’s borders to enable tourism and the hospitality industry grow.

He acknowledged that the country’s tourism potentials had not been fully tapped, thereby asking the federal government to make visa process as easy as possible for more tourists willing to visit the country.

He, however, asked the federal government to leave the municipal governments to handle the business of licensing hospitality operators in the industry, saying the recent Supreme Court judgement had put to rest the six-year legal battle and paved way for the state governments to take full control of tourism control and regulations of the industry.

According to him, the federal government should not begin “to work out the regime that will be open and transparent so that we can reap the benefits. There is so much the country has to put out there. It must be a multi-jurisdictional collaboration where everyone will manage its own allotted roles so that the tourism industry of the country can be effective.

“We have very rapid development of hotels and hospitality facilities in the state in the last six years. But they did not happen accidentally. They happened due to the state government policies, aimed at expanding the economic frontier of the state. They have come as a result of the state government investment in security, promoting night life and culture, erection of street lights and cleaning of the city.”
