The event which held in Asaba, the state capital was tagged Seth at 5, the incredible 5 years experience.
The Chief Executive Officer of the Seth Hotel, Mr. Seth Okanoro said the hotel had contributed its quota to reducing the unemployment rate in the state and nation at large, noting that so many youths were working in various sections of the hotel in its different branches.
Mr. Okanoro who is also the Senior Special Assistant to the Governor on Youth Development said hospitality business generally had its unique challenges requiring patience, focus and dedication, and urged those who desired to venture into the hospitality industry or similar investments in the state, to take the bold step and focus on the goal.
He recalled how being in a correctional centre had helped to reform his mind to think towards development strides, and thanked his father whom he said God used to reset him on the right path to re-write his story.
The CEO thanked all who had supported him to become a strong brand.
The General Manager of the Seth Hotel, Mr. Shedrack Azubuike said the hotel was built with a vision of creating comfort and luxury, guided by the founder’s belief in excellence in hospitality, noting that the hotel’s transformation into a sanctuary in the past few years was a testament to the commitment of the team.
Mr. Azubuike said positive feedback from guests around the world, as well as awards received by the hotel had all served as motivation to the management and staff to see that the hotel continue to evolve, to meet the ever changing needs of guests.
The member representing Ndokwa East in the State House of Assembly, Prince Emeka Osamuta, the Commissioner for Youth Development, Dr. Isaac Agbateyiniro and the father of the Chief Executive Officer of the Seth Hotel, Mr. Bernard Okanoro, were among dignitaries who graced the event.
