The Oyo State Ministry  of Culture and Tourism, in partnership with the Central Council of Ibadan Indigenes (CCII), is set to celebrate World Tourism Day 2023 at Captain Bower’s Tower in Ibadan.

This marks a change in tradition, as for the past four years, the state has celebrated Tourism Day at various locations, including Idere Hills in Ibarapa (2019), Iyake Lake in Ado-Awaye (2021), and Iyamopo in Agebele, Igbeti (2022).

According to Dr. Wasiu Olatubosun, the Commissioner for Culture and Tourism, this year’s Tourism Day celebration will take place on Wednesday, September 27, 2023, at Captain Bower’s Tower in Oke-Are, Ibadan. It will be the first time World Tourism Day is observed at a tourist site within Ibadan.

“As part of this year’s celebration, we will be offering free guided tours of Bower’s Tower throughout the day,” announced Dr. Olatubosun. Additionally, a lecture with the theme “Tourism and Green Investment” will be delivered by Prof. R. A. Alabi from the Department of Archaeology and Anthropology at the University of Ibadan. Dr. Olatubosun extended an invitation to everyone to participate in the celebration.

The event will welcome distinguished guests, including Engr. Dotun Sanusi (Chairman), Chief Bayo Oyero, and Chief Mrs. Mutiat Ladoja (Father and Mother of the Day). His Imperial Majesty, The Olubadan of Ibadanland, Oba Mahood Olalekan Balogun, (Royal Father of the Day), will lead other prominent Obas to the event. King Saheed Osupa will provide musical entertainment.

Those interested in participating in the free guided tours are encouraged to contact the Ministry of Culture and Tourism through their official social media handles on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
