Nigerian Tourist Eyes World Record, To Visit 54 African States In Nine Months

A Nigerian tourist, Ilerioluwa Babalobi, 31, has begun a tour to visit all 54 African countries and raise awareness for social interventions.

The 31-year old who started his tour from the Red Cross office in Lagos, would tour the continent spending an average of five days in each African country visited without using a plane.

Babalobi’s tour would solely be executed by public transportation, marking the first African to undertake such an adventure.

The tour, which he hopes to complete in nine months, would make him the first African to tour the continent without a plane, using only the public transport system.

The tourist who began his adventure over two weeks ago, has so far visited Benin, Togo, and Ghana, where he drew attention to their cultural wealth.

Funds raised from the tour would be donated to the Nigerian Red Cross, a non-governmental organisation that intervenes on various fronts to assist the poor on the continent.

He said the tour would also be used to promote the Borderless African Campaign advanced by the Africa Rising Nongovernmental organisation.

In each country, he would be visiting the tourist sites and interacting with the culture of each country.

Babalobi’s decision to spend an average of five days in each African country would be to showcase the tourist sites of these locations and amplify the cultural wealth and distinction of these countries.

The trip when completed would set two Guinness World Records for the Nigerian tourist as he would be the first to tour the continent touching each state and doing so without an aircraft.

Babalobi has previously visited each Nigerian state and 16 regions of Ghana as well as over a dozen African countries which has given him a glimpse of how tasking and adventurous the journey would be.
