In a groundbreaking move, Abuja is poised to become Africa’s preferred tourist destination with the launch of Pinnacle City, an iconic mega-integrated city resort.

This revolutionary project promises to transform the economic landscape of the continent by creating a hub for tourism, sports, leisure and entertainment.

Addressing newsmen in Abuja, the President/CEO-Nigeria, Dr Elvis Abang, said the Pinnacle City is designed to be a global and integrated modern entertainment city, boasting the world’s largest man-made lagoon, a natural wildlife reserve, African village, Olympic stadia and village, water parks, the presidential retreat and library, among other attractions.

Expressing grief over the development of Nigeria’s tourism, he noted that the project’s first phase is set to establish a new benchmark for tourism and entertainment in Africa.

He added that Pinnacle City is strategically positioned to tap into this potential, aiming to surpass existing records with its 100-hectare man-made lagoon.

He said: “When completed, it will become Africa’s preferred tourist destination.

“The pre-launch of the first phase of the project is to publicly establish our plans in locating the world’s largest and tallest sports, leisure and entertainment city on the African continent.
