Jamaica, Nigeria Agree To Start Tourism Exchange


The leaders of Jamaica and Nigeria have agreed to start an exchange program to learn from their countries' tourism industries, an official said Wednesday.

KINGSTON, Jamaica (AP)--The leaders of Jamaica and Nigeria have agreed to start an exchange program to learn from their countries' tourism industries, an official said Wednesday.

Prime Minister P.J. Patterson and Nigerian President Olusegun Obasanjo met privately Tuesday night in Montego Bay, a resort area in western Jamaica, said Foreign Affairs Ministry spokesman Wilton Dyer.

They agreed that Jamaica would sent people to Nigeria to train tourism workers on hospitality, Dyer said. Nigeria, in turn, will send artisans to train Jamaicans in woodcarving, he said.

Obasanjo left the island on Wednesday morning. His one-day trip to Jamaica followed a four-day visit to Trinidad, where he participated in celebrations of the anniversary of the abolition of slavery.

In Trinidad, Obasanjo also appealed for support from the 15-nation Caribbean Community for his West African nation's bid for a permanent seat on the U.N. Security Council.

Otasowie means evening life is better than morning life. There is an error in your “evening life is better than evening life”?

Sokari doesn’t mean joy. Joy is Biobela. Go to the village and ask the meaning of the name.
