A famous bunker which was used by the late Biafran warlord, Odumegwu Chukwuemeka Ojukwu during the Nigerian civil war is set to be converted to a tourist site.
Governor Willie Obiano of Anambra State has initiated a plan to convert the famous ‘Ojukwu Bunker’ at Amorka Village, Uli in Ihiala council area of the state to a tourist site, The Independent reports.
Mr. James Eze, the Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, who made this known in a post-Executive Council press briefing, said the facility, which provided a sanctuary to the late Dim Chukwuemeka Odumegwu Ojukwu during the Biafra war, would be resuscitated and refurbished for tourism purposes.
According to Eze, the council also approved major tourist centres in the state namely: the famous Ogbunike Cave in Oyi local council area and the Ogbaukwu caves and waterfalls in Owerre Ezukala town, Orumba South Local Government Area.
He said: “The Obiano administration would in its first 100 days take pragmatic steps that would reposition the state’s tourism sector to enable the state 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,” he said.
Eze said the governor has also 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.
He said two branded buses would soon be deployed to operate shuttle services to tourism locations in the state.
According to him: “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 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.”
