International carnivals

As part of the tourist drive to this destination we would also organize perennial international carnivals like the Brazilian Carnival that draws tourists across the world or the Notting Hill Carnival of West London.

ACFV and MDG
The concern of attracting investment, know-how and market accessibility remains paramount to ACFV, more so the worldwide phenomenal growth of Nollywood can no longer be ignored despite its inherent challenges. Its positive impact on Nigerian economy is gathering momentum with the cheering prospects of becoming a major economic index in the nearest time future.

In this direction, we see Nollywood as a major stakeholder that can add impetus to this tourist and business destination hub of West Africa. Also, with Millennium Development Goal (MDG) at the back of our mind.
ACFV should serve as an economic growth that would reduce acute poverty, hunger, diseases, and open vista of opportunities for productive employment.

We see this project as a monumental one with the vast potentials of stimulating the growth of Nigerian economy.

In the early 1970s, professor Vinton Cerf, known as the “father of the Internet,” developed with a colleague the TCP/IP protocols which would become the standard for Internet communication between computers. In the 1980s, John Cioffi and his students realized that traditional phone lines could be used for high-speed data transmission, leading to the development of digital subscriber lines (DSL). In 1991, SLAC physicist Paul Kunz set up the first web server in the U.S. after visiting Tim Berners-Lee, creator of the World Wide Web, in Geneva, Switzerland.
