Senator Adeseun upgrades Ibadan National Museum of Unity

Senator Ayoade Adeseun, the Senator Representing Oyo Central at the upper legislative arm who also is the chairman, House Committee on Capital Market has again demonstrated his passion for historical records and monuments through his contributions to the development of the Ibadan Museum of National Unity.

Senator Adeseun did not only transform the museum by ensuring infrastructural development, he also spent money on projects that will drive the revenue generations efforts of the museum and the initiatives has not only boosted the revenue generation, but also helped in luring tourists and researchers to the museum.

The curator of the Museum Mr Bode Adesina said: "Senator Adeseun's name cannot be left out in the development we have witnessed in the museum, he has been very supportive before I came here and since I took over two years ago.

We intimated him of our needs and he has really assisted us through his assistance, the road within and leading to the museum has been tarred, he erected solar light in strategic places within the museum, he also assisted us in constructing a 1000-capacity auditorium which is yet to be commissioned.

He also constructed a new children play park which has really beautified the environment of the museum, aside from his contributions anytime we have programmes and we call on him for assistance he is always available to assist. The new museum kitchen too was also constructed by the lawmaker.

"A recent visit to the museum revealed gradual changes that has evolved right from the entrance, hitherto the road linking museum with the Aleshinloye Market road was not in good condition, but the quick intervention of Senator Adeseun saw the road being tarred even beyond the Museum and this even rubbed off on the State Security Services office which is not far from the historical record house. The museum premise was also tarred with fixtures and solar electric poles both inside and outside the museums.

"The solar electricity poles are not only within the premises alone, but also extended to the main road up to few meters to the SSS offices.

The children play park is also equipped with modern facilities at the children's park were said to be one of the best in Ibadan,

The Children Park according to Mr Adesina is to complement the fun for the children who visit the museum. "When school children came to visit the museum, they also have the chance to recreate and catch fun."

While speaking on the 1000-capacity seats hall, the curator said the hall which is yet to be commissioned houses two halls for exhibition and another one for IT "The main hall is for meeting, while the remaining two halls are for exhibitions, one is for IT, where we will have electronics devices such as computers with internet facilities through which people can come and make research, We are poised to give the best and with the gestures from people like Senator Adeseun, we are getting closer to our target.
