The National Association of Nigeria Travel Agencies (NANTA), Abuja Zone, has finalised arrangements to hold its 2021 Dinner and Award Night on Wednesday, December 15, 2021.

The National Association of Nigeria Travel Agencies (NANTA), Abuja Zone, has finalised arrangements to hold its 2021 Dinner and Award Night on Wednesday, December 15, 2021.
  
The dinner and award night is set to unveil and recognise the people who sustained the industry during this challenging COVID-19 ravage.

  
The award night, which will take place at Chida Event Centre, Utako, will be an avenue to dine and wine with members of the zone, industry partners and as a way to appreciate some of their loyal customers who despite the travel restrictions patronise their members.
  
In a statement by the Vice President, NANTA, Abuja Zone, Ambassador Kayode Adeshola, the sudden lockdown and the travel restrictions since the year 2020 came as a rude shock to the industry, hereby having a negative impact on travel businesses and restricting travel clients to visiting their choice destinations, hence the need to reunite with customers and partners as a way of coming back stronger in the new year.
  
Adeshola, however, stated that he has great hopes for the future of the travel and tourism industry in Nigeria.

“This is the right time for the government to pay more attention to this sector of the economy that has generated over one million jobs in Nigeria, including employment by hotels, restaurants, travel agencies and other passenger services organisations such as the transport sector. It is now a verifiable fact that this industry that has been abandoned for so long is now contributing tremendously to the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) of the Nigeria Economy as a whole.”
  
He continued: “The Nigerian travel industry today is still facing many challenges due to the COVID-19 pandemic that is tormenting the globe but the stakeholders keep flying the flag high.”
  
The NANTA Abuja Zone comprises the following Six States: FCT, Nasarawa, Benue, Kogi, Niger and Plateau.
