The Director-General, National Council for Arts and Culture (NCAC), Segun Runsewe,

has said that crucial measures on COVID-19 testing and certification process were needed to support the tourism sector in 2021.

In a statement on Wednesday, in Lagos, Runsewe said that the reality of the new wave of the pandemic had created additional burden for the tourism industry, such that the players do not know how to survive in 2021.

He said that inbound travels across board and partial lockdown affecting outdoor recreation, hospitality businesses, are having impact on jobs and would eventually have a devastating effect in the industry.

Runsewe said that there was a need to reassure the cultural tourism economy to curb depression and continued job losses for the industry that has been known to champion employment and rural development. (NAN)
