That the former Skye bank managing director and chairman of Heritage bank, Akinsola Akinfenwa is heavily into properties might be stating the obvious. The good news however is that a new hotel project of three-star located in the business district of Ikeja has been linked to the banker. It was gathered that the hotel, just been completed is set to open on February 14 to celebrate the famous Valentine’s day. Already Ibis hotel group contracted to manage the hotel is said to have taken charge and concluded arrangements to open for business.
The hotel is located right behind the Skye bank regional office in Alausa, opposite the Ikeja shopping mall with Elephant House as its neighbour. As Expected, tongues are wagging that the land in which the hotel was built on might have been appropriated from Skye bank while he was the boss. Attempts to seek the views of workers at the newly completed hotel was unsuccessful as they have been instructed no to divulge critical information as to ownership to the public.
