  3. Congratulations to our own Dr. Vincent Richards! Doc was also instrumental 45 years ago, in the establishment of two Travel Agencies in Antigua, one of which Wadadli Travel & Tours worked with Pan African Travel &Tours, Nigeria Ltd. to lift off a charter tour operation between Nigeria, Antigua & Trinidad. Doc, it did not happen then, and it is still not happening properly now, but can and will, if you lend your integrity to Antigua’s current dilemma!
