Amid the euphoria of winning “the Real Estate Company of the Year Award”, the Chief Executive Officer of Pelican-Valley, Dr. Babatunde Adeyemo, has said that the company was determined to bringing Lekki in Lagos State to Kobape in Ogun State.
Lekki parades unique spectacular homes amid residential estates that adorn the state of excellence.
The Chief Executive Officer of the company, Dr. Babatunde Adeyemo, spoke while receiving the award in his office.
Adeyemo described the award as victory for hard work, perseverance, selflessness, honesty and transparency.
While expressing delight at the award, Adeyemo said: “this award will spur our company to strive and record more feats in the real sector in the country”.
Adeyemo said his company would always follow due process in carrying out real estate business and ensure that its clients get value for their money.
While declaring that he had managed the business for ten years without dispute or court case, the journalist turned estate entrepreneur added that he would continue to follow the path of honour in building and taking the company to an enviable height.
“At Pelican Valley, we are doing due diligence; complying with government’s directives, rules and regulations, and ensure that we do all necessary documentations. All these are capital intensive, particularly, getting approval for layout, but we do them to give our clients the best.
“Our clients get 100% return on investment in six months on the land they buy from us, and within seven days they get their building plan approval at any of our estates,” Adeyemo stated.
On the plans of the company for 2022, Pelican Valley CEO disclosed that a new project will soon be launched at Pelican Brief, Kobape.
According to him, over 400 direct investments would be brought into the location to build classic homes, saying “we are bringing Lekki to Kobape”.
“In furtherance to our vision to ignite the economic development of Kobape, we are launching a classic home project. Already, we have over 400 direct investors ready to partner with us. Here, we are replicating Lekki; we are starting with about 20 homes that can compete with any you can find in highbrow estates in Nigeria.
“To encourage our clients, there will be 10% rebate as pre-aunch give away. The payment will be in dollars to insulate the project against inflation and variation, and the payment will be interest free.
“While we make the payment plans to be between six and 24 months, there will be penalty charge for defaulters. By the time this project kicks off next year, Kobape and its environs will witness a total turn around,” Adeyemo stated.
Chairman, Awards Committee, Adebowale Aderotoye, said Pelican Valley was nominated and eventually picked by the audit committee for its various giant strides in the real estate sector.
The award established ten years ago was put together by the Gateway Business Awards.
