The Managing Director, WEMPCO Group, Mr Lawrence Tung, made the announcement in a statement in Lagos by the firm’s Executive Director, Corporate Affairs, Taiwo Alli.
Tung reaffirmed the company’s commitment to the Nigerian economy through youth empowerment and continuous delivery of world-class hospitality services to foreign investors as well as other critical national stakeholders.
“The WEMPCO Group remains fully committed to supporting Nigeria in her efforts to develop and grow the nation’s economy through diversification.
“Our hospitality business, Lagos Oriental Hotel, has been at the forefront of providing international standard services to guests and visitors for over a decade and will continue to do so,” Tung said.
He said that facilities which were affected by the unfortunate attack on the hotel in October had been fully restored.
