Peace has been described by the Governor Rauf Aregbesola as the main stimulant for developing the tourism of Osun state. He says that the right environment for investment asking the commoners to pay their taxes their regularly to the government can make this dream come true. He explained hotel Naira, the multimillion project of this state as a sheer blessing.
Further, he pointed out that effectual marketing techniques can help to grow the business by leaps and bounds, by keeping the competitors at bay. He said, ““You must also let the world know your services by using effective media in and outside the state.” He also said that the oil era is slowly fading away. Therefore, the authorities should look for other avenues for economic development of the country. He says that Aenon Suites is one such investment that can take economic growth to higher level. He said, ““This singular effort by the promoters of Aenon Suites will go a long way to improve the socio-economic fortunes of its immediate catchment area and by extension the overall progress of Osun State, through provision of employment opportunities for tens of our young graduates. Osun State is blessed with tourism potential in various forms. What is absent is the full exploitation of these potential to attract the much- needed foreign exchange for our state. The Olumirin Waterfalls, Erin Ijesha, the Osun Grove, Ife Museum, among others, should be given adequate attention by both the state and Federal Government.”
By comparing Dubai, Brazil and Singapore, Senator Adeleke said that if these countries can majorly survive on tourism, Nigeria can also do so. However, he considers culture to play an important role in the management of Aenon Suites. The management should provide innovative solutions in maintaining the culture of the land. Oba Abdurasheed Akanbi, the Oluwo of Iwo, described the new attempt to be first among equals and best in the country.
He appreciated the proprietor’s efforts. Mrs. Bola Akintounde considered it to be an unparallel effort in the state and one of the best hotels in the world. This 41-room facility is kind of a one-stop solution for every customer, providing various amenities.
