Stephen Olufemi Oni, Ilorin

In its efforts to boost tourism in
Kwara State, the State Government has commenced reconstruction works on the long abandoned Patigi Regatta Motel in Patigi town,.

The reconstruction work, according to the Commissioner for Business, Innovation and Technology (BIT), Damilola Yusuf, would span eight months and would include shopping areas and expansive parking space.

The Motel features standard rooms, VIP suites, conference hall, restaurants, and courtyards, among others.

“We have already handed over the site to the contractor,” she added.

The Patigi Regatta Motel is located along Kpada Road and 1500m from Kusogi Park in Patigi town of Kwara State.

The government embarks on the total overhaul and remodelling of the existing structures to expand the tourism potentials of the state, generate jobs, and improve the current revenue generation drive of the state.

The Commissioner said the facility would come handy once the Annual Patigi Regatta and fishing festival is revived for recreational purposes in that axis of the state.
