Reality Television show, Teachers Naija, tasking over sixteen housemates on Nigerian tourism destination challenge sponsored by National Association of Nigeria Travel Agencies (NANTA) and Topax Travel Agency, will be aired on DSTV channel 195 and GOTV 97 Saturday, August 13 by 8pm.
The innovative reality show anchored by two female travel icons, Mrs Susan Akporiaye President National Association of Nigeria Travel Agencies (NANTA) and Mrs Ibiwari Uloma kemabonta, drilled Nigerian Teachers who were pulled together as housemates and representing their states, to give a rundown of three tourism sites and festivals in their states worthy as destination products.
Participants in no particular order and who are teachers of primary and secondary schools, represented states such as Lagos, Osun, OGUN, kwara, Anambra, Imo, Abia, Edo, and Delta, among others.
Dressed in detailed Nigerian outfits, reflecting our diversity, each of the housemates, had about four minutes to run through the socioeconomic and Cultural tourism engagements in their states, and to share personal vision on how grow youth tourism clubs in their catchment academic environment.
Scored on the strengths of presentation, deep knowledge and marketing communication initiatives, the overall winner will go home with a paid return ticket to an all expensive paid holiday destination in any part of Nigeria.
Also the participating housemates, will also have tourism books and a scheduled education trip to the city of Jos, plateau state before the end of the year. The participants will also enjoy free training program on tourism, hospitality and Culture management.
Mrs Akporiaye and Kemabonta who spoke separately on the effort, noted that targeting Nigerian teachers on tourism challenge, is the best way to help deepen the knowledge and love for Nigeria Cultural tourism engagements among the teachers who are the moulders of the minds of Nigerian children in their formative years.
They both assured of sustaining the initiative and to use it as a spring board to capture and grow new generation of travel and tourism trade operators, who will be Nigerian tourism centric, and proud ambassadors of our tourism for tomorrow.
