Business tycoon and philanthropist, Ayoola Awosemo, on Saturday 20th, August 2022, officially launched an ultra-modern event centre in the city of Ibadan.

The event centre was named, E’ledua Multipurpose Event Hall; an indigenous name for God in Yoruba land. It occupies a very large expanse of land at the Office Bus stop, along Moniya Road, Sasa area of Ibadan.

The launching ceremony was held at the main hall of the event centre as the edifice was commissioned by Rt. Hon. Adebo Ogundoyin, Speaker of Oyo State House of Assembly. He was accompanied by quite a number of lawmakers of the esteemed assembly. They include the likes of House Majority Leader; Hon. Sanjo Onaolapo, Hon. Olusola Owolabi, Hon. Femi Julius, Hon. Rasaq Mabaje, Hon. Kazeem Olagunju, Hon. Babajide Gabriel, Hon. Sanjo Onaolapo, Hon. Hakeem Mustapha, and Hon. Olatunde Kehinde.

Giving a welcome address by proxy, Awosemo who is far away abroad revealed that the desire to build the event centre was born out of his philanthropist gesture which is to provide job opportunities for people and by extension give a means of better livelihood. He said the event hall would also go a long way in providing relaxation for fun seekers as they need not travel far away to get a befitting venue for their events.  He however assured the audience that he won’t be discouraged in replicating such gestures at every opportunity.

The Oyo Speaker during his speech commended Mr. Awosemo for the laudable project and the initiative of giving back to his community as the project would benefit the state at large. He pledged that he would ensure that the event centre would enjoy the patronage of the lawmakers. At the same time, he urged indigenes of Oyo state in the Diaspora to establish their businesses at home as the state government is ready to fully support them.

Also speaking to commend the CEO of the event centre were the Chairman, Oyo State Waste Management Authority; Prince Segun Moronfolu, Hon. Hakeem Mustapha, Hon. Babajide Gabriel and Jadesola Oyetayo of Jade Cuisine.

The star-studded event was a classy one. It was attended by top personalities such as the Majority Leader of Ibadan North Local Government; Hon. Adeagbo Oluyemisi Ogunkeyede, Oyo state Commissioner for Youths and Sports; Hon. Asiwaju Seun Fakorede; Prince Adebowale Falana, Alhaji Taoreed Koleosho, Mr. Esimekuai Emmanuel, Alhaji Lawal Quadri, Chief Benedict Akika, and many others.

They all had a splendid ceremony as they enjoyed the treat given to them by the host in the very conducive environment of the event centre. The waving-making music band, Dayo Success band was fully on ground to entertain the host and guests as they wine and dine in celebration of the launching of the multipurpose event centre.

The E’ledua Multipurpose Events Centre is an attractive and inviting edifice when sighted from a long distance. A closer look at the structural design depicts class. The 1500 setting capacity event centre houses the main events hall; Abike Hall, and 3 galleries namely Arike Hall, Aremu Hall and Ajoke Hall. Each of the galleries has a projector screen attached to them. The galleries can be detached and used separately as each of them has soundproof facilities to prevent interference when more than one event is being held at the same time. It also has enough packing space for guests.

Aside from the massive halls at the premises, Eledua Multipurpose Events Centre offers facilities for lodging and a lounge/bar for fun seekers. It has come at the right time to ease its customers off the stress of the day. It is indeed a place to be.
