Tourism is a basic means of attracting visitors to appreciate the material and human potentials that abound in such a place and this is further enhanced via transportation if properly harnesses can be utilised for the development and progress of a place. Tourism may be seen to consist of a sense of encounters in which visitor interact with the host. Thus, it simply defines as the movement of people from their origin to places of destination for recreational purposes. The main point to be noted from the brief description above is that it is concerned with how man travels from one place to another for leisure recreational purposes. According to Ogunlade (2004) states that tourism is God’s own given gift to man in the sense that any tourist attraction centre is beautiful, thrilling and marvellous sight to behold which leave you thinking of how great God is to Mankind. According to Ogunlade (2005) states that the journey of Nigeria Tourism began September 25th 1962 when the Government took its first moved by establishing the Nigeria Tourism Association ( NTA). The NTA a government body primarily charged with the responsibility of developing and promoting tourism in Nigeria. Mean while a decree 54 of 1976 was promulgated due to the fact that NTA could not meet the expected challenges. Therefore the Nigeria Tourism Board (NTB) was established which further led to the establishment of the Nigeria Tourism Development corporation (NTDC) which is the government parastals and at present as a co-ordinating body in Nigeria. According to Ogunlade (2005), In July 1990 a new tourism policy was launched by the Federal Government which further explained the reason why both the public and private sectors should get involve in the tourism industry. Among these public and private sectors and other bodies that were established value this policy was the Directorate of food, Road and Rural Infrastructure (DFRRI) and the mass transits system to see how the rural areas that harbour most of our tourist product and potential can be made accessible to facilitate intrastate and interstate travels. 1.2STATEMENT OF PROBLEM Tourism and transportation sectors have great concern over the increasing fall of state affairs which has be on blamed on the following. Tourism in Nigeria has suffered a lot of set back during the last few years due to a lot of factors such as frequent ethnic and religions clashes and hostage taking for example in oil producing areas, which have tampered with the security system of the nation. Furthermore, available roads to most of our attractions are not motorable, lack of electricity and potable accommodation is a luxury in most of our resorts while most of them are still without communication facilities despite the advent of Global system mobile communication in the country lack of awareness programme to encourage people to visit places. Thus, inadequate funds for rehabitation of facilities. 1.3OBJECTIVES OF THE STUDY As the tourism industry is of rapid growing segment of today’s economy and consideration have been given to the importance of transportation on tourism only.
