The National President, Mr. Olatunde Oluloye FTHC and all the Executives and Members of the Association of Tourism and Hospitality Consultants of Nigeria (ATHCON) has congratulated President Bola Tinubu on his 100 days in office. ATHCON said the Tinubu administration has made key policy changes one of which was the creation of the Ministry of Tourism.  The association commended President Tinubu for the great feet.

In a press release sign by the National President of the association, Mr. Olatunde Oluloye and the National Secretary, Dr. Omopeju Fanu, ATHCON said: “We have, over the years as active participants in this sector of the economy clamoured for this individually and collectively. The decision to accord the industry a separate ministry speaks volume about the government’s commitment to harnessing the socio-economic benefits that tourism offers, while also acknowledging the crucial role tourism plays in cultural preservation, community development, and global representation. With the creation of a Tourism ministry, it is expected that more agencies and parastatals will be added to it to streamline the operations and programmes of the new ministry, in addition to the existing two agencies operating in the Old Ministry of Culture and Information. We also congratulate the pioneer Minister of Tourism, H.E. Lola Ade-John, on her appointment, we pledge our unwavering commitment to collaborate closely and leverage our expertise to support your efforts in propelling the Nigerian tourism industry to unprecedented heights. We strongly believe your expertise in the technology space positions you to leverage innovative digital solutions, thereby enhancing destination marketing strategies, and ensure seamless travel experiences for both domestic and international tourists. We further use this medium to advocate for the inclusion of the industry in the President’s economic drive to support hospitality and tourism businesses as not only are both industries potential sources of foreign exchange but also one of the highest employers of labour.”
