The Governor, who spoke at the foundation laying ceremony of the J.K. Randle Centre for Yoruba Culture and History in Onikan, Lagos, said the Centre was part of a grand plan by his administration to turn the Onikan axis into a critical tourist hub, not just in the country but in the continent.

In a statement issued by the State’s Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Steve Ayorinde, the State Government said the upgrade demonstrates its commitment to use sports as a potent tool for development and job creation, adding that the stadium, which is the oldest in Nigeria, was originally built in 1930 but was last renovated in the 1980s.
