My Italian friends are surprised I went to Nigeria for tourism - Lady says

Despite the negative reputation that precedes Nigeria, it appears there are still some people in other countries who have refused to harbor prejudice for what Nigeria is believed to be by other countries.

An Italian woman identified as Irene Rizzo, has left many Nigerians on social media impressed and delighted after she spoke about her trip to Abuja, Nigeria. In her tweet, she revealed her Italian friends were surprised by her choice of destination.

She wrote: "My Italian friends are still surprised to hear that I went to #Nigeria for #tourism! But I'm happy that so many are curious to know about my experience in #Abuja, knowledge is the way to fight #prejudice and create bridges"
