Mo and Oakwood Park
  Another major achievement of Mo Abudu is The Protea Hotel, Oakwood Park which was commissioned in August 2004.

The Protea Hotel, Oakwood Park, situated along the Lekki Expressway is the first new build hotel of its type ever in Nigeria.


The Protea Hotel, Oakwood Park is set on over 1 hectare of land, comprising of:

  • A specialist executive centre with 10 training rooms, 12 syndicate rooms equipped with state of the art training and conference facilities, sitting between 10 – 300 delegates.
  • A hotel complex of 65 rooms, comprising of standard twin and queen rooms and 3 king suites.
  • A 120 seater state of the art restaurant.
  • Leisure facilities to include a gym, swimming pool, sauna and elaborate landscaped areas.

Mo’s concept for the Protea Hotel, Oakwood Park from day one was to achieve a facility that provides services to meeting the changing needs of professionals who want the serenity of a suburban location, well equipped dedicated training and conference facilities and the comfort of executive accommodation and leisure. The flexibility in meeting these needs is the key element of both the program and design of the Protea Hotel, Oakwood Park.

Prior to sourcing for additional investors to get the project started, the responsibility for the location, the design of the facility, obtaining governor’s consent, obtaining planning approval, sourcing for a well respected Hotel Group to manage the complex all rested on the shoulders of Mo Abudu.

Today, the Protea Hotel, Oakwood Park plays host to serious business events, conferences, workshops and training courses.
