Hotels fully booked in Osun ahead of poll



Hotels fully booked in Osun ahead of poll

Virtually all hotels in Osogbo, Osun state capital have been fully booked ahead of the state governorship election slated for September 22.


New Telegraph investigations revealed that most of the intending lodgers have paid management of the hotels since last week, while some made payments early this week to secure accommodation during the election.

Findings further revealed that those that booked these hotels on behalf of their visitors are influential politicians in the state, especially leaders of All Progressives Congress (APC) and Peoples Democracy Party (PDP) as disclosed by some hotel management and staff, who spoke to our reporter on the condition of anonymity.


As a result of the development, many hotel managers now turn down booking requests of their normal customers and non-politicians as they claimed that the hotels are fully booked to its brim and they cannot manage to accommodate new visitors.


Speaking with our reporter at Ideal Nest Hotel, a receptionist, who refused to mention his name said: “Our hotel rooms have been fully booked and there is no need making an enquiry of the amount we give out rooms to customers till the end of the election in the state.”

He, however, apologised for any inconvenience that might cause the lodgers.


Also, at Adekunle Hotel in Osogbo, it was the same story as the receptionists appealed to customers to look elsewhere for their lodgings because the hotel rooms have been fully booked ahead of the September 22 election in the state.
