The Tourism Federation gave this assurance on the culmination of their Governing Council Meeting held in Abuja March 5th 2020.

The President of the Tourism Federation, Alhaji Saleh Rabo, who spoke to reporters after the Council Meeting called on all Nigerians and foreign travelers to fully comply with the Corona virus preventive processes setup at Nigeria’s entry ports and other public places.

Alhaji Rabo revealed that FTAN, which is the only national umbrella body of the organized tourism private sector, has since intensified sensitization of her 23 federating member Associations on the likely effects of Covid-19 in Nigeria’s travel and tourism businesses.
