You needn´t explain this to me, I know it. but the sentence "Badagry has a lot of history to it (...) and a city with hotels, restaurants and night clubs around the slave ports could be a good idea."
Slave trade is a highly sensitive issue and I was a bit baffled by the idea of building a tourist centre with night clubs, big hotels and other leisure facilities AROUND it. Tourism needs a more soft approach around those grim spots. That´s the point that I was traying to make, maybe I misinterpreted Naijalove´s sentence.
The tourist facilities are to provide people with places to stay and things to do while visiting the mornuments. There is a reason why Goree Island and Ghana's forts are attracting more visitors and that is because they invested in facilities around the monuments. At the same time, Badagry's heritage as a commercial town/center is just as valid and the upgrading of Badagry is in line with this heritage.
