He explained that,”His excellency believes so much in individual prosperity. Once the individual prospers our economy grows.

There would be progress in society, there will be less crime, and people would sleep with their two eyes closed. To see young guys like you doing this wonderful things shows that our future is bright for Nigeria. 

In Ogun state, we take the lead positively in Nigeria, when you talk about any profession, people tend to envy us, we are seen as number 1, and we have a higher institutions in Ogun state than in any other state.”

Alhaji Odushile added that,”There is what we call ease of doing business, one of the things the government is trying to do is to make Ogun state the first choice for investors. People tend to mistake investment and investors, we have been attracting foreign investors, we want to be at the top and part of the things we want to use to attract investors is to have good infrastructure.

You won’t have to preach more than any reasonable investors.

We are proud of what you are doing at pelican estate, I also heard that  you have done all the documentations.

In his address,the Chief Executive Officer of Pelican Valley Estate, Dr Babatunde Muritala Adeyemo said the visit was to share with the commissioner the vision and mission of the company towards creating a self-sustaining economy that would also serve as bedrock for sustainability urbanization, coupled with mechanized agriculture as a springboard for economy sustainability.

Dr Adeyemo said,”We want to ignite the Gateway smart cities of our dream as Urbanization lies not just in the hand of the government, but likewise collective effort of the private investors and stakeholders in the real Estate sector in the state in line with the mandate of the Prince Dapo Abdiodun’s Led Administration.

“Pelican Valley Nigeria limited had played a vital role in the state urbanization and controlled development strategy in Ogun State government in general. 

“The emergence and the launch of Pelican Brief Estate, Kobape had played an integral role in generation of revenue for the state government, ranging from various stamp duties from clients and investors, also bringing over one thousand Nigerians in diaspora  into the Ogun State governments Tax drag net, through payment of stamp duties and building approval levies, apart from the corresponding job creation effects of our project.

To us this is just a starting point as we are set to ignite some project within the Kobape region that will help aid, sustain and generate more revenue to the coffers of the state government and also aid controlled development, proper planning and Urbanization and most importantly boost the agricultural production base of the state in no small measures.”

Speaking on the proposed Pelican’s Gateway Economic Autarky project, Dr Adeyemo said the  project contains three sub project namely; The Pelican’s Ecostay Apartments, The Pelican Brief Estate, The Pelican’s Greenish Acres Farm Estate and The pelican Farm Market. (As it was in our frame).  

He added that,”The pelican ecostay apartment as the name implies evolve around building affordable homes for intended client in a 100% eco-friendly environment which support zero carbon emission in it usage. 

The Pelican Brief Estate is set to be the very first smart city, with our serviced plot allotment scheme… However, in our bid to completely invigorate the economy of our Estates axis, our Organization had concluded plans to launch the Pelican’s Greenish acres farm Estate and also the Pelican’s Farm Market, less that 1.5 kilometers away from our Estate projects in Kobape, come 11th of September 2022.

“It’s worthy of note that this particular Masa, kobape axis had been constantly neglected by past administrations; and had felt the presence of government last for over 2 decades.

” Thanks to chief Osoba for fixing a 33-KVA trunk line we are enjoying on the axis today. 

Apart from the 1.5Km committed acquisition boundaries, the strategic and prime status of the axis is expected to generate an estimated #30 billion in direct and indirect taxes into the coffers of the Ogun State government within the next three years, when the 3 kilometres single lane road is fixed.

Apart from the attendant expected revenues from that axis, the road would also serve as a veritable means on decongesting the kobape/Abeokuta expressway and also aid urban rural migration, which would in the long run decongest Abeokuta metropolis.”

He said the Company will also extend the consultations to the ministry of Agriculture, finance, Housing, urban and His Excellency, the Executive Governor, Prince Dapo Abiodun mfr.

Dr Adeyemo called on the good people of the state for partnership with the government in order to achieve the goals of the project and make life more bearable for the residents of the State
