Chief Odusanwo said ITPN will continue to carry out its mandate in the systematic professional development that will avail the sector with certified skilled manpower for excellent service delivery in the Nigerian tourism industry in line with global standards.
While wishing Kangiwa a successful tenure at NIHOTOUR, Chief Odusanwo said the ITPN is always available to avail him with best the possible support in the discharge of the onerous task ahead of building a strong human capacity base that will service the industry in the most effective and best efficient manner
