2018 DTN-TAGN: Madam Tourism powers event to a huge success

There are three kinds of people in life: Those who don’t know what is happening…busy discussing others; Those who watch things happen (spectators); and Those who make things happen. Where do you belong? (There is a need to be active because it is what God sees in your hands He will use to bless you—inactiveness is unacceptable —the Spirit of God is active 24 hours a day—if you are not active you are a failure.)

Madam Tourism, poised with marching Tourism in Nigeria forward, has been active with different activations in the industry and the just-held 2018 Destination Tourism Night was presented under the auspices of one of her initiatives:Towards A Greater Nigeria Foundation—a pioneer promoter of Nigeria’s cultural tourism strength—and this immense involvement was not only hugely contributive to having dignitaries from various sectors  attend the event but powered it to the very heights of success many never envisaged it would be.

It is important to note that tourism in Nigeria was like the days of Israelites in Egypt before the advent of Mrs Omotosho’s tourism activation called Towards A Greater Nigeria Foundation that took the sector out of that Egypt-era just as Moses did for Israel.
