Ondo Eyes Number One Spot in Tourism as Dome Nears Completion

Ondo State Governor, Dr Olusegun Mimiko has projected that the state would soon assume the number one status in Tourism Corridor in the country with the near completion of its International Event Centre, known as ‘The Dome’ in Akure, the state capital.

The governor who inspected the Dome construction site   along Igbatoro road with his deputy, Alhaji Lasisi Oluboyo and other members of the state executive said the project would soon be  completed and open for use.

He expressed satisfaction at the level of the job so far done at the project site and its  quality, assuring  that the centre when completed, would be a global event centre and number one event destination in Nigeria.

Mimiko  expressed optimism that the event centre, located closely to the new Akure Shopping Mall would have positive effect on the socio-economic circumstance in the State.

“The Shopping mall with Shoprite as the anchor tenant is just a stone throw from here and there is also a five-star hotel coming up in that premises. Down  the road to Idanre, we have the world-class mountain resort and we have two major golf course within this axis. The Elizade golf course, Smoking Hills  and the Atosin golf course, all along this corridor. What we are looking at is a tourism corridor like no other one in Nigeria and I have no doubt in my mind that this will have positive effect on the socio-economic circumstance in Ondo State,” he said.

Conducting the Governor and his team round the project site, the technical director of the project,Adam Chandy, explained that the centre was expected to be delivered soon as it had reached about  80%  completion.

Chandy explained  that the event centre contained a main hall capable of sitting 2000 persons,  another auditorium for 450 persons, four syndicated rooms for brief meetings, 40 toilets, bar and restaurant among others.
