Speaking  to us last week, Alao, who is the CEO of Jos  Marias Suit said, he has observed that not much is done to project our tourist site

 " We have no good data abroad, visitors mostly do not know much about our good sites, and the Ministry is not  doing much or maybe they are too busy , the government must work on this now because no matter the tension in the land visitors still want to travel round and see good site"he said

zuma rock -
The Rock ranks high as one of the choice tourist attractions in the Country. Zuma Rock, the monolithic Inselberg with a human face, is located in Madalla, Niger State, to the North of Abuja. It was once described as the unquestionable watchman of the F.C.T. It is the sandy concealment that hangs like a haze over Zuba Town. The other mountains in and around it stay a considerable distance from it, which the Zuba people see as a form of respect being paid by the other mountains to Zuma Rock for its royal presence in the locality.
Visiting Zuma Rock between April and October, which marks the rainy season in central Nigeria where the rock is situated, would afford you the opportunity of seeing the much talked Zuma Rock Fire, as the apex of the Zuma Rock catches fire under heavy rainfall. Over time, this has remained one of the wonders of the Zuma Rock.

Aso Rock is a 400-meter rock which stands out as the most noticeable feature in the capital city of Nigeria, Abuja. The location is reputed as one of the lush tourist attractions in Nigeria, as it is a location in the Country’s seat of power. Aso Rock houses the three major seats of power of the Nigerian Federal Government namely; Presidential Villa (Aso Rock Villa), National Assembly, and the Supreme Court, albeit the Aso Rock Villa building is the only structure built in the valley of the Rock. Although tourists are still allowed to visit this place, due to the rise in the menace of terrorist attacks by Boko Haram in recent times, this access has become limited.




THE recent visit and subsequent show of love by fast rising Afria wonder kid OzzyBee to an orphanage home where he donated an Award to the orphans of St Monica's Orphanage Home (ably received by the children & Reverend Sisters managing the home) is a wake up call for the people of today to show love and care to orphanages in our midst
Even the Holy Bible was explicitly clear on why we must support and love orphans, the following proved such in the following passages

* 1. All Waiting Children Have a Father
God is the great protector and loving Father of all children living as orphans. Psalm 68:5 says, “Father of the fatherless and protector of widows, is God in his holy habitation.” He who numbers the hairs on our head will certainly not turn away from the children living as orphans, and this should inspire us to act.
2. All Children Living as Orphans Deserve Justice
Deuteronomy 10:18 says, “He ensures that orphans and widows receive justice. He shows love to the foreigners living among you and gives them food and clothing.”
Also, Psalm 10:14 says, “But you, God, see the trouble of the afflicted. You consider their grief and take it in hand. The victims commit themselves to you; you are the helper of the fatherless.” Justice is a fundamental part of God’s character, as we are shown in the Bible. That even one child does not know the love of a family is a great injustice, and there are millions of children living in this reality.
God promises protection and help for those who cannot protect themselves, and he redeems injustice through his mighty love. He also asks us to do something about it. God invites everyone to play their part in working toward justice.
3. The People of God Will Care for Orphans
James 1:27 says, “Religion that is pure and undefiled before God, the Father, is this: to visit orphans and widows in their affliction, and to keep oneself unstained from the world.”
The words of the Bible call God’s people to actively pursue meeting the needs of children living as orphans, and a great place to start is through prayer. Show Hope features a prayer focus child from one of our Care Centers in China every month. We have great resources available to help you get involved in caring for children living as orphans. Your actions matter and you can help make a difference, whether you are a prayer partner, an advocate, a Show Hope sponsor or even a prospective adoptive parent.

SO OzzyBee 's recent show of love must be commended, he said to WORLD LEADERS on phone after the event " I was touched by the visit and I plan to do more, I want my uncles and aunties to please also show some love to orphans and visit them all the time, they are war and nice kids out there " he mused

He adopted the Orphanage Home @ the tender age of Five (see last photo below).
