Prof Bambo Somuyiwa of LAUTECH, Ogbomoso that attended the AGM commend the association for their tutelage of their students who has gained immensely from both online and physical training about travels within and outside Nigeria.
He stated that, “ATTWON won my heart when they approached me in 2018 about taking the transport department students on their roles and importance to domestic tourism. I attended the first training late 2018.
The three-tiers training in 2019 was superb! Despite the pandemic, they held series of online talks and training with the sophomore and graduating student on how to be self-reliant in 2020.
I had to ensure that I was also present to deliver a paper, gift and commendation on behalf of my students and the department.
