Tourism has continued to assume tremendous growth in recent years. Throughout the world, more people than it was ever thought possible travel for pleasure, business and the like within their own country and abroad. The impact of tourism felt all over the world, either as a generator or receiver of tourists or both has made tourism a catalyst for economic development and social well-being of the people. However, the full potentials of tourism cannot be realized without adequately trained manpower and professionalisation of the industry.

It is in view of the above that the National Institute for Hospitality and Tourism, the apex institution and professional career ladder for the hospitality and tourism industry in Nigeria and the West Africa sub-region was established in 1988. The agreement for the establishment of the Institute was signed between the Federal Government of Nigeria, the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and the International Labour Organization (ILO) in 1987. Whilst the ILO was the executing agency of the UNDP, the NTDC was the implementing agency on behalf of the Federal Ministry of Commerce and Tourism. The terminal report of its first phase showed that both the UNDP and the ILO were highly satisfied with the programmes of the Institute. In fact, they both regarded it as one of the best ILO projects of its type in the whole African continent.

To further consolidate the gains of providing for capacity building in the industry, the mother ministry handed over and merged to NIHOTOUR the Management of the famous ILO established Hotel and Catering Schools located at Benin, Enugu, Kaduna and Lagos. This is to strengthen and widen the operational base providing labour for the industry at the geopolitical zones respectively.

The relocation of the Central Administration of NIHOTOUR to Abuja has added to the new campuses aside that of Bauchi and Osogbo whose set up is on going to commence training  programmes in due course.

Since inception, the Institute has produced well over 5,000 skilled and craft trainees servicing the various sectors of the Nigeria’s Travel, Tourism and Hospitality industry. The Institute is striving to meet a training target of 2 to 3,000 and more trainees a year to meet the over 40,000 technical craft and skilled manpower required to service the travel, tourism and hospitality sector of the economy in the next three to five years.

,ewww... louis vuitton lv,

I'm biased since I use my Verona almost every day - I love it. I vote for the Verona PM. LV

love it when someone compliments my bags but I don't base my opinions on if a bag gets any or a lot of compliments. My favorite bag is my Brown Watercolor Speedy, I feel like a million bucks when I carry it even if I'm just going to the grocery store in jeans and a t-shirt. But this bag has never gotten a compliment. In fact, she's been insulted a couple of times: I've been asked why did I mark all over it and I've been told it looks l LV
My case is I helped somebody to buy a wallet but bought the wrong color and I called Coach Spore from Japan explaning the situation. Quite messy though cos Japan Coach is a different entity it's seem but nevertheless, the SA there contact directly Japan Coach and somebody from Japan Coach called me and help to settle it! Dont should get it settle. rolex king
,I don't leave my locks on my bags in general. It is cute but it adds weight to my bag. louis vuitton cheap,

I would never buy from anyone with only 1 positive feedback even if it's authentic as they really have nothing to lose in terms of feedback as they can easily run with your money and create a new I.D. Good luck! Hope everything goes well! louis vuitton purse


I love the Totally! I think it is very classic and has clean lines. I do like the more trendy styles and I think they are fun to carry, but I think this is something you can have for many years and always be in style. vuitton wallet
