Gbenga Daniel’s Conference Hotel opens in Abeokuta after it was allegedly locked down for 8 years by Ex-Governor Amosun

The Vice President Prof Yemi Osibajo has commissioned a new hotel built by the former governor of Ogun State, Otunba Gbenga Daniel, eight years after it was locked down by the Ibikunle Amosun administration.

Osinbajo came in with the former governor of Ogun State, Chief Olusegun Osoba, Governor Dapo Abiodun and his wife Bamidele Abiodun, the deputy Governor, Noimot Salako-Oyedele and Daniel’s age mates in Ijebuland’s Egbe Bobakeye.

Other dignitaries present include Senator Musiliu Obanikoro, former Ogun deputy-governor Salmot Badru, Erelu Abiola Dosunmu, traditional Rulers, archbishops and many more.

The completion of the Conference Hotel and Suites was delayed for eight years by the Amosun administration, who also snubbed court orders to vacate stoppage of work at the site.

At the ceremony, Osinbajo, who is also a son of Ogun state, said culture and tourism in the new world order are referred to as soft power because of their influence in economic and international relations.

He said that the location of the facility in Abeokuta would attract international conference organisers desirous of serenity and tourism potentials.


  1. Osinbajo is not saying anything about sowore's rearrest but he can go to abeokuta for hotel commissioning. Does it mean he doesn't care about what is happening in the country

    1. What do you expect him to say, when he is not the president

  2. Nice one after 8yrs of incarceration

  3. When it is Osinbajo's turn anyone that pity or sympathize with him thunder will hit such an individual
