Director General of the National Council for Arts and Culture (NCAC), Otunba Segun Runsewe, will host a dinner party to honour and appreciate the leadership of National Association of Nigeria Travel Agencies (NANTA), for being the most peaceful, impactful hardworking industry trade group in the country.

Runsewe insisted that the 47 years old association has kept its head high and enthroned an effective succession plan devoid of bad blood and bitterness which had led to the disappearance of other similar trade groups in the industry, noting that NANTA is the top flag bearer of the hope and expectations for Nigeria’s cultural tourism sector.

He disclosed that the get together will be held in Abuja, at a date which will be announced later and will bear the trappings of apex government cultural tourism organisation with foreign diplomats and industry bigwigs in cultural tourism, aviation and the corporate world in attendance.

“We cannot pretend that NANTA has not made us proud. Indeed, the association under the watch of Mrs. Susan Akporiaye has kept us on our toes, reached out in the most strategic manner and connected to sharing the pictures of how government could join hands with the private sector players to serve Nigerians well.

Mrs. Akporiaye and NANTA have made us proud and deserve to be appreciated and celebrated,” Runsewe said.

The NCAC boss who is also President, Africa region of World Craft Council, further paid glowing tribute to the founders of the association and urged other trade groups to eschew bickering in their affairs, remain focused and find ways and means to navigate the process of inter government and private sector relationships to the gains of the industry.

“I must also say I like what is coming out of the Federation of Tourism Associations of Nigeria and very soon, we at NCAC, will join hands with its leadership to have a more enduring and fruitful practical and beneficial relationship to the gains of the private sector.”

The 47th elective Annual General Meeting of NANTA comes up in the ancient city of kano next month and it will be a critical trade gathering to shape the future of aviation and cultural tourism in Nigeria, with opportunities for government and the private sector organisations to showcase their services and products.

Mrs. Akporiaye inaugurated the NANTA 47th AGM Planning Committee in an urgent and earnest desire to make the event a world class outing.
