Alhaji Ibrahim Goni, the Conservator-General, National Parks Service has urged Nigerians to use the occasion of Eid-el-fitr to patronise any of its parks across the country in order to appreciate Nigeria’s natural treasure.
Goni, who made the call in an interview Wednesday in Abuja said: “I want Nigerians to make out time during the Sallah break to visit the Park closer to them so as to recreate and have a happy and peaceful Eid-il-Fitr.’’
According to him, patronising the parks will go a long way in helping to develop them to acceptable global standards.
“It will also enhance the revenue drive of the parks, thereby, contributing to the country’s Gross Domestic Product, GDP.
“We are working to preserve and protect the nation’s natural heritage and the cultural edifices that memorialise them across generations, and if we don’t patronise them, they will go moribund.’’
