The Anambra State Governor, Willie Obiano, has said the Ojukwu Bunker at Amorka in the Ihiala Local Government  Area of the state will be made a tourist site.

He said the facility which provided “a sanctuary” for the late Dim Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu during the civil war, would be refurbished for tourism purposes.

Obiano, who spoke through his Chief Press Secretary, Mr. James Eze, after a post executive council press briefing, said his government had approved major tourist centres in the state.

He gave the names of  some of the tourist centres as the Ogbunike Cave in  Oyi LGA and the Ogbaukwu Cave and Waterfalls in Owerre Ezukala town in Orumba South Local Government Area.

He said, “The Obiano administration will in its first 100 days, take pragmatic steps that will reposition the state’s tourism sector to enable the state to mine the potential therein.

“These tourist centres will receive immediate attention with the construction of access roads to them as well as concrete footpaths that will lead into the bowls of the caves to make them easily accessible to tourists.”

Eze added, “The governor has directed that the Light-up Anambra Campaign be taken to the various tourist sites to illuminate the roads and footpaths leading to the caves and the bunker while two branded 30-seater buses would  be deployed to operate shuttle services to tourism locations in the state.

“Governor Obiano’s drive to develop the tourism sector into an alternative foreign exchange earner for the state is consummated by his appointment of a core professional with experience in the business, Mrs. Sally Mbanefo as the Commissioner for Tourism.

“All these efforts are targeted at drawing attention to the state’s historical, religious and cultural endowments and make them accessible to the rest of the world.”
