The Menace of Boko Haram in Hospitality Patronage in Nigeria And its Effect on Health and Healthcare.



It has been observed that most hospitality industry is not having up to 40% occupancy in their business. This has prompted the research topic: The Effect of “Boko Haram” on the Development of Tourism Industry (A Case Study of Jos Metropolitan Council of Plateau State, Nigeria). A total of 140 copies of questionnaire were distributed and only 130 were returned. Simple percentage was use in the analysis of the data. It was concluded that there are negative effects on the hotel patronage because of insecurity. Tourists that were able to still make it were not able to access healthcare in the immediate vicinity. We then recommended that the state government in collaboration with the owners of hospitality industries should ensure proper security training for the security personnel. All effort should be made to cater for the health of the displaced people.
