Astute banker, Bayo Adelabu has finally opened his private guest-house in Ibadan.
The new hotel which has been described as one of the choice places in the hospitality sector in Oyo State took just 5 months to be constructed and it turns out to be a master piece which has all the features and touches of a modern design that suits its purpose.
Those in the know claimed that the owner used his favorite holiday spot in Paris, France as a model for the architectural designs.adebayo_adelabu-200x300
The owner who is a grand-child of the late Ibadan politician, Chief Adegoke Adelabu ‘Penkelemesi’ is one of the deputies to the CBN Governor, Mr Godwin Emefiele.
Bayo to people close to him is a man that doesn’t compromise taste and perfection explaining his contest to make his new hotel the best in the city.
The new hotel speaks volume of the owner’s dream. The interior, fittings, beddings and even the location is a prove of its operation and the expected patronage. The hotel is located at the highbrow Akinola Maja, Jericho, Ibadan, a vicinity of the city’s top residents like the State’s Commissioner of Police, the former Governor of Ekiti State, Kayode Fayemi, ex-Governor Oladayo Popoola and many others.
Many admirers of the banker-owner of the hotel believe that the location of the guest house in Ibadan is a deliberate move by the owner to start preparing ground for a political ambition he is claimed to have been nursing for many years.
The Obafemi Awolowo University graduate of Accounting is said to have been a firm supporter of the many ideas and political principles of his grandfather, Chief Adegoke Adelabu, a very brilliant politician who ruled Ibadan in the 70’s.
Bayo is believed to posess his late grand-dad’s brilliance and boldness, these rare qualities endear him to the people with the belief that one day he would step into the late Adelabu’s big shoes.
The late Adegoke Adelabu was a man loved by many in Ibadan but his political dreams was cut short when he died in his early 40’s in a fatal auto crash.
The younger Bayo is revealed to be nursing a political ambition which he hopes to kickstart by contesting for the State governorship in 2019.
The construction of the Bayse-One hotel is claimed to be among his many plans to capture the support of his people.
The banker who rose through the ranks in his career as an Executive Director in First Bank before he was appointed a Deputy-Governor of the apex bank is a man that believes in youth empowerment and poverty alleviation and that is more reasons he is targeting employment as a means to win the people’s loyalty.
One of his friends revealed to papermacheonline that ‘Bayo’s calculation was to contest in 2015 but he had no option when the CBN job came. This came as a leverage to him and his target now is to draw support and plan for the next four years, by then he must have retired and that is why he is spending so much to locate his business in Oyo State and create employment. You will see other things he would be doing from next year. Age is on his side, he has a good pedigree and the people are all there for him’.
