The proposed corporate offices, including a 12-storey building will control the activities of the banks in West Africa.
Governor Ibikunle Amosun who made this known during a visit the project site, said contractors have started mobilizing to site of the projects, which are being undertaken by the state government and its corporate partners.
Another major project that will be located in the city centre, according to the governor, is the central station of the federal government’s rail project.
