Guild of Tourism Journalists Commend Aregbesola On Hassan Olajokun Park

THE Guild of Tourism Journalists of Nigeria (GTJ) has called on the Governor of the State of Osun, Mr Rauf Aregbesola on the Hassan Olajokun Park strategically located at the Gbongan junction, for the benefit of travelers, tourists and motorists.
The members of the association led by its President, Wale Ojo – Lanre, during a tour of the park on Friday, commended Governor Aregbesola for the successful completion of the park located at the critical Gbongan-Osogbo link Road junction along the Ife – Ibadan Expressway which, if in operation, will save a lot of people from being plagued by road stress.
The guild noted that the completion of the park with chalets, conference room, event centre, restaurant, toilets, recreation centre and kids place and many other amenities is a noble idea that would boost the economy of the state by luring travellers on that road to have a break on their journey and spend time, money, know more about the state and relax
The association pointed out: “We are impressed with the rate at which the government concluded the project. Now, you can break your journey instead of giving yourself too much stress on the road. You can relax at the park which has a lot of facilities that tourists and travellers will find suitable for their pleasure.”
It remarked that “The concept of the park is lovely. Corporate organisations can come into the place for retreats and other functions.
The park is not only spacious but well situated. The beauty of the park is that the government made adequate consideration for security and medical needs of the tourists by not only building a police post inside the park but also providing a stand by ambulance bus strategically placed outside the park for emergency usse.
“The association urged other state governors to borrow a leaf from the Governor of Osun State. A traveller going through that road to Abuja or North should have places like the park to relax. It will ease the stress of travel. There should be over five or more of such parks along the way to Abuja. If for any reason the traveller decides to make a stop-over, such traveler will be able to lodge without stress.”
The association however tasked Governor Aregbesola: “We implore the governor to gear up action on the park which is first of its kind in the country. We look forward to the government making the park a Public-Private Partnership venture. We do not want to see that beautiful concept run aground with unnecessary bureaucracy and red tape.
“We want to see it put into use in no distance future because the Christmas Festival is fast approaching. The park should be a beehive of activities, thereby generating income for the state and improving the economy of Gbongan and its environ.
