Since Imo State Government must carry out its civic duties, there is need for it to look for supplementary sources of revenue. The major purpose of this research is to critically examine the feasibility of choosing tourism as an additional source of revenue from tourism development in the state and the role it is currently playing in the economy of the state. In carry out the research, primary and secondary sources of data were used. Various aspects of tourism and its impact were considered. Carefully defined copied of data were administered on randomly drawn tourism workers etc. sample percentage was used to analyze the data while Chi-square was adopted in testing the hypothesis since the research is descriptive in nature. The research reveals that the level of tourism development in Imo State is low because of government in that sector.
