Nigeria: La Campagne Tropicana Celebrates PHCN Connection

La Campagne Tropicana Beach Resort, a seaside hospitality and leisure property at Ibeju Lekki, is celebrating the successful connection of the resort to the national grid, ten years after it began operation.

The resort was hooked to Power Holding Company of Nigeria at the beginning of the year. Wanle Akinboboye, founder of the resort, said though, public power supply is erratic across the country, the few hours that the facility will enjoy power will save the resort a lot of resources.

He noted that running on generators since he began operations has been tough, with over 30 per cent of profit going to diesel and maintenance of the resort's generators. According to him, savings following the connection to PHCN would be channelled to upgrading facilities as well as hiring more locals and staff thus perpetuating one of the aims of the resort- providing jobs, as well as opportunities for the surrounding communities.

The resort currently provides over one hundred and fifty full time and occasional part time jobs for the host communities.

La Campagne Tropicana Resort has over 100 rooms in various categories and has grown to become the preferred seaside resort in the country for Nigerians and the large expatriate community.

The resort is an hour's drive from Victoria Island, Lagos, with its infrastructure perfectly blended with the surrounding and spectacular ambience of the countryside.
