Chairman, Board of Trustees, Federation of Tourism Associations of Nigeria (FTAN), Chief Samuel Alabi has said that the Celebration of World Tourism Day by the Federation slated for September 27th in Lagos, must have the buy -in of all tourism stakeholders.

Alabi, who once held forth for FTAN during the association’s most difficult moments and later midwifed the new leadership of the federation, disclosed that the celebration of World Tourism Day tourism by FTAN should engender collaborative efforts and platform unity of purpose for the growth of the sector.

“This committee should not be about fund raising alone, even though very critical to the hosting the event but it should work hard to bring both the private sector and government together” Alabi further explained.

He added that he is ever willing to support FTAN and the industry in his own little way.

Speaking at a reception to welcome FTAN fund raising team headed by Dr. Gani Tarzan Balogun, who was on a curtsey visit to brief about the WTD celebration outing, Alabi who also doubles as legal Adviser and Company Secretary, Eko Hotels Ltd, took time off to provide guidelines to sustainable fund raising blueprint for the prime private sector association.
