The Director General (DG), National Council for Arts and Culture (NCAC), Otunba Segun Runsewe, has called for deep measures of support for the tourism sector in 2021 through faster coronavirus testing and certification process.

This was contained in a release signed by Runsewe where he added that the “reality of new strain of the pandemic, coupled with very stringent measures for inbound travels across board with partial lockdown affecting outdoor recreation, hospitality business and impacting on jobs, has advanced additional burden to industry players.”

Runsewe who also doubles as President, Africa Region of the World Craft Council (WCC), stated that there is need to create a climate of assurance and faith for the cultural tourism economy to avoid depression and continued loss of jobs which the Industry is known  to champion in order to break unemployment and empower rural development.

He explained further that NCAC took to strategic engagement with relevant and critical stakeholders during the year to frustrate the fear and anxiety of COVID-19 pandemic and praised the efforts of NCDC and Presidential Task force on COVID-19 for creating the enabling environment for the cultural tourism sector to thrive.
