History was made recently when the ground breaking ceremony of La Campagne Tropicana River Resort Koton Karfi in Kogi State held at the resort’s site amidst celebration by the people of Koton Karfi and others in attendance.
The new resort is to seat on 89.7 hectares stretch of land with the River Niger forming a lake across the land.
Interestingly, just like the Lekki resort, which has the Atlantic Ocean and the lagoon with the mangrove swamp and stretch of forested land harbouring some animal habitats, the Koton Karfi resort also comes with its complete blend of natural elements such as the lake and forest area which hopefully would make the resort a distinctive natural hideaway as well.
Speaking during the ceremony, the founder and President of La Campagne, Otunba Wanle Akinboboye, described the new venture as a new dawn and celebration of industry and successes that have been achieved in the 30 years of the existence of La Campagne in Lekki and that he hopes to replicate the same in Koton Karfi and even surpass it.
He urged the people to embrace the resort because it is for them as it is meant to bring development to the community and open it to the international community, thereby improving on the socio- economic and cultural development of the people and the community.
