Ondo State Governor Commissions Sunshine House in Lagos, Vows to Attract Local and Foreign Investors

Ondo State Governor, Hon. Lucky Orimisan Aiyedatiwa, has reaffirmed his administration’s commitment to attracting local and foreign investments to boost the state’s economy. The Governor made this statement on Wednesday during the commissioning of the Ondo State-owned Sunshine House in Victoria Island, Lagos.

The Sunshine House, managed by the Ondo State Development and Investment Promotion Agency (ONDIPA), was initiated by former Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu and completed by the Aiyedatiwa administration. The project, valued at approximately N3.3 billion, features a brand-new seven-floor office building with modern facilities, including kitchenettes, a terrace, reception, gatehouse, generator house, and waste management system.

Governor Aiyedatiwa praised the former Governor Akeredolu as a visionary and a man of integrity, stating that the commissioning of the project fulfills his promise to sustain Akeredolu’s legacies. He emphasized that the old structure, inherited from the defunct Western Region, was outdated and unattractive to investors, prompting the state government to construct a modern building that represents the new generation.

The Governor highlighted the state’s commitment to fostering industrial growth, enhancing infrastructure, including road networks and port development, to support business operations. He assured that the state is ready to offer incentives to attract local and foreign investors, demonstrating that Ondo State means business.

The Chief Executive Officer of ONDIPA, Mr. Gbenga Badejo, described the project as a development symbol and revenue driver for the state, commending the government’s vision and commitment to creating a business-friendly environment. The project developer, Akintola Oladejo, praised the seamless transition between the late governor and Aiyedatiwa, who completed the project without issues.

Former Governor of Ekiti State, Otunba Adeniyi Adebayo, commended Governor Aiyedatiwa for continuing with the legacy projects of the late Akeredolu and expressed a desire to secure similar benefits for Ekiti.

The event was attended by dignitaries, including the Commissioner for Lands and Housing, Akogun Akinwumi Sowore, Special Adviser to the Governor on Infrastructure, Pastor Ayoade Babalola, and Special Adviser on Entrepreneurship, Mr. Summy Smart Francis.

This development is expected to boost the economy of Ondo State and demonstrate the government’s commitment to creating a business-friendly environment.
