Ambode, who talked about the ground-breaking in terms of redevelopment of the J.K Randle Centre for Yoruba Culture in Onikan, observed that after the close of the said projects, it would be converted into recreation, tourism and entertainment centers.

“At the inception of this administration, we made a promise to Lagosians that we will execute only programmes and projects that will be to the benefit of all our people. “We identified some areas for special attention in our bid to accelerate growth and development. One of the areas we have identified which holds a lot of potential and opportunities for high growth and employment, is tourism. “It is an area in which a little investment in infrastructure will generate a lot of economic activities, leading to job creation. One of such edifices is the J.K Randle Centre which was originally built in 1928,” Ambode said.

In recent times, Ambode mourned by saying that the centre has become bit outmoded, serving uses than the initial reason for which it was created before declining to abandon and disrepair. “As a result, the Lagos State Government decided to redevelop the centre and we are here for the ground-breaking of the new J. K. Randle Centre for Yoruba Culture and History. In the past, the centre provided recreational services to the Lagos populace but the new J. K. Randle Centre will do a lot more.” Ambode said.
