The National Association of Nigeria Travel Agencies (NANTA), has disowned the alleged travel agent paraded by the Economic and Financial Crime Commission ( EFCC), saying that she is not a member of NANTA and should not be addressed as a travel agent.

Mrs Susan Akporiaye, President, National Association of Nigeria Travel Agencies (NANTA), who clarified the position of the umbrella body of travel trade operators in Nigeria, gave an account on the status of the Kaduna based agency, noting that all verifiable information at the disposal of the association, shows that the purported travel agent, has no relationship with the association and therefore, should not be so addressed.

Speaking at the sidelines of the official opening of Travel Hub, a collaborative and one bus top facilities outfit geared towards providing operational environment for upcoming and registered operators who may not afford the high cost of office space, Mrs Akporiaye, stated that NANTA has invested time and money to address the various  challenges posed by touts in the industry, and warned members of the traveling public to circumspect when planning their trips and who to engage.
