Tourism Icon and founder of La Campagne Tropicana, Chief Wanle Akinboboye, has introduced the “Youth African Tourism Expedition” (YATE) programme to engage the youths and stimulate tourism businesses in Nigeria and Africa.

“We have decided to bring in a tourism product that will exhilarate the youth from ages 15 to 40 so that they can live a lifestyle they will grow with.

“YATE is a youth programme aimed at encouraging the youth to travel, have tourism experiences and explore Africa.

“YATE is designed for youths from age 15 to 40, undergraduates, young business executives and other fun seekers through creation of a camp in an eco-friendly African-themed environment.

“An environment spiced with team bonding exercises through games like swimming, aim the basket, catapulting, table tennis, live roasting-grilling of yam, plantain, barbecue, snooker and many more,” he said.

Akinboboye added that YATE is the second of the 52 fresh tourism products at his fingertips which he would willingly offer the tourism industry, to stimulate business.

According to him, he had earlier presented the Diaspora Nigeria Economic Recovery Programme (DNERP) as the first of such products. He urged the youth to embrace the programme for advancement of the tourism sector.

Akinboboye said YATE is available for young tourism entrepreneurs, because it offers a template for entrepreneurship in Nigeria, Africa and other countries.

“Those who register with us at can go to schools, engage students for YATE and get their commissions.

“We intend to bring up the industry from the bottom to the top. That’s because YATE will give quick return and take away youths from restiveness and teach them lasting fun and a new lifestyle,” he said.
