In 2019 the Bonny Kingdom was seeking to upscale the prominence of Bonny and make it a major investment destination, diversify its economy from reliance on oil and gas to other areas such as tourism. A major part of this initiative is the reconstruction of the old Bonny Consulate Building; which will replicate the look and feel of the old Consulate building and will house Bonny FM Radio Station, office of the King of Bonny, a Library, a Museum, a Café, a Movie hall, a Seminar/Exhibition hall, as well as a Souvenir shop and offices for those who will manage the tourism initiative and various aspects of the facility.
Albums Af,A46 and Af,A47 were originally in one album containing 176 photographs.
