Lai Mohammed now Vice President

The Minister of Information and Culture, Alhaji Lai Mohammed, has been named Vice President of the United Nations World Tourism Organization (UNWTO) General Assembly, reports ITRealms.

This follows his election by acclamation to represent Africa as a Nigerian candidate, alongside Cape Verde, at the 22nd General Assembly of the UNWTO, which opened in Chengdu, China, on Wednesday. China was elected President of the Assembly.

Nigeria's election followed the country's unopposed nomination by the UNWTO Commission on Africa (CAF), which met a day earlier.

Reacting to Nigeria's election, the Minister said: ''To be called upon to serve as a Vice President of the General Assembly of the UNWTO is a very big honour to Nigeria.

''It has proven one thing, that in the last two years, we have succeeded in pushing tourism and the Creative Industry as a whole from the back burner to the front burner. from a side issue to the main issue. This has also been noticed by the global community and I feel highly gratified by it.''

Nigeria, which will serve on the UNWTO General Assembly until 2019, will host the 61st edition of the UNWTO CAF Meeting in Abuja 4th-6th June 2018.
