World Tourism Day 2015 - Celebrating World Tourism Day in Nigeria (My beautiful Nigeria pictures included)

World Tourism Day, which falls on Sept. 27 annually and is celebrating its 35th year in 2015, was conceived by the United Nations to celebrate one of the world’s most important industries. 
World Tourism Day was established at the third session of the U.N. World Trade Organization General Assembly in 1979, it was seen as a milestone within the international community and demonstrated the important social, cultural, political and economic effects of travel worldwide.
“Every time we travel, for whatever reason, we are part of a global movement; a movement that has the power to drive inclusive development, create jobs and build the sustainable societies we want for our future; a movement that builds mutual understanding and can help us safeguard our shared natural and cultural heritage,” noted the U.N. World Tourism Organization Network, underlining the founding values of the day.
Sept. 27 was chosen as the day because it comes at the end of tourism's high season in the Northern Hemisphere and the beginning of the holiday season in the Southern Hemisphere.
So to celebrate World Tourism Day, here are pictures of the beautiful tourist attractions of My country Nigeria.
