 The Management of the International Institute of Tourism and Hospitality (IITH), Yenagoa, Bayelsa State, has revealed that its efforts to secure full accreditation from the National Board for Technical Education (NBTE) for its National Diploma and Vocational programmes are paying off.

Rector of the Institute, Mr. Samuel Timi Johnson, made the revelation during an interactive session with online media professionals who recently undertook a facility visit to the Institute. He disclosed that NBTE, after series of inspection visits, is so impressed with the efforts of the IITH Management in this regard that it wrote to communicate the impending full accreditation to the IITH Management. “We expect to be fully accredited soon,” Mr. Johnson said.

He assured the delegation that the monotechnic is already making global impact in the tourism and hospitality industry – thanks to the high quality of its products and series of partnership agreements with reputable local and international stakeholders.

The IITH Rector disclosed that the Institute also runs commercial services, including catering and production of branded wears.

He announced that 2017 admission process is ongoing, advising interested candidates to visit the Institute’s website for more details.

He lauded Governor Seriake Dickson for establishing the Institute in 2012, noting that it is well poised to significantly contribute towards diversifying the economy of the state and increase the revenue profile beyond oil and gas resources.

He promised their commitment to collaborate and market the potentials of the Institute to prospective students and investors in Nigeria and other parts of the world.
