Leadership is not about mounting the minaret to celebrate the intangible acts or deeds for personal aggrandizement or ego tripping but striving hard to establish identifiable sustainable legacies which fosters national building and development
As the Director General of the National Institute for Hospitality and Tourism (NIHOTOUR), Alhaji Nura Kangiwa has exemplified exceptional leadership and dedication in transforming the institute into a powerhouse within the tourism sector.
His visionary approach and strategic initiatives have revitalized NIHOTOUR, setting new standards and achieving remarkable milestones that have garnered praise and recognition from industry experts and stakeholders alike.

One of Alhaji Nura Kangiwa’s significant accomplishments at NIHOTOUR has been the reengineering of the institute to meet the evolving needs of the tourism industry.

Since assuming office, Kangiwa has ushered in a remarkable transformation at NIHOTOUR, breathing new life into the institute and positioning it as a true national asset.

One of Kangiwa’s first and most significant accomplishments was the establishment of a robust legal framework for NIHOTOUR. He ensured the final passage of the NIHOTOUR bill into an act, solidifying the institute’s standing and granting it the necessary autonomy to fulfill its mandate effectively.

Kangiwa’s vision for NIHOTOUR extends far beyond the confines of Abuja, as he has successfully transformed it from a capital-based parastatal into a truly national outfit. This strategic move has allowed NIHOTOUR to extend its reach and impact across the country, ensuring that its vital services are accessible to all Nigerians.

Another groundbreaking initiative spearheaded by Kangiwa is the establishment of the first-ever mobile NIHOTOUR Training Center. This innovative approach has enabled the institute to bring its world-class training programs directly to the doorsteps of aspiring hospitality and tourism professionals, ensuring that no one is left behind.

Kangiwa’s transformative leadership has also manifested in the launch of the Ecogenesis Incubators Program, which has already been introduced in four states. This program aims to nurture and empower entrepreneurs in the tourism and hospitality sectors, fostering innovation and creating new economic opportunities.

Additionally, Kangiwa has forged a close partnership with the Ministry of Tourism, leading the charge on the Community Tourism Project. This collaborative effort is designed to harness the rich cultural and natural resources of local communities, empowering them to become active participants in the tourism industry.

Alhaji Nura Kangiwa’s tenure at NIHOTOUR has truly been a story of transformation and progress. Under his guidance, the institute has transitioned from a parlous state to a position of grace, with a renewed national outlook and a steadfast commitment to serving the needs of the Nigerian people.

Kangiwa’s leadership is marked by his unwavering dedication, his resourcefulness, and his ability to focus on the national agenda rather than personal aggrandizement. He is a true asset to the nation, and his appointment is a testament to the wisdom of those who recognized his potential to lead NIHOTOUR to new heights.

As Alhaji Nura Kangiwa continues to steer NIHOTOUR towards excellence, the nation can take pride in the remarkable strides made under his stewardship. His legacy will undoubtedly inspire future generations of public servants to emulate his example of transformative leadership and service to the nation.
God blessed the day he was appointed the Director General, National Institute of Hospitality and Tourism.
