Today, Pelican Brief Estate, Kobape is one of the fastest growing Estate, with over one thousand Nigerians in diaspora investors..
We acknowledge the promptness of your staffs towards a very fast building approval process.”
He explained that,”we are here for a number of reasons, one of which is that Ogun state is our host, But primarily, we are here to share with you our vision and mission towards creating a self sustaining economy that would also serve as bedrock for a sustainability urbanization, leading to economic independence .
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 of this ministry in particular and 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.
The role of your ministry can’t be overemphasize in achieving the above mentioned project, due to the well implementation of our full government approved layout .
Pelican Brief estate had attracted over one thousand investments from Nigerians in Diaspora to Kobape. This project had banked on various infrastructure development mainly the 33KVA trunk line project done by the Olusegun Osoba led administration, a project of an estimated value of over five hundred million done over two decades ago.
However this infrastructure had laid fallow over the years and remained untapped and underutilized, until the advent of our company, Pelican valley Nigeria LTD.
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 cofers of the state government and also aid controlled development and proper planning and Urbanization.”
Dr Adeyemo further explained that The Pelican’S Gateway Economic Autarky 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.
He said,”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 Organisation had concluded plans to launch the Pelican’s Greenish acres farm Estate and also the Pelican”s Farm Market, less that 1.5 kilometres away from our Estate projects in Kobape, come 11th of September 2022.”
Dr Adeyemo called on government to partner with them in provision of infrastructure especially road to achieve the vision. He said ,”Infrastructure is an important element in urban development. No one can underestimate the need for good road network and the various developments it can drive along.
It is worthy of note that this particular Masa, kobape axis had been constantly neglected by past administrations; and had felt the presence of government over 2 decades ago. 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 decongesing the kobape/Abeokuta expressway and also aid urban rural migration, which would in the long run decongest Abeokuta metropolis.”
He informed that the consultations will be extended to the Ministry of Agriculture, Finance , Housing, Information and His Excellency, the Executive Governor, Prince Dapo Abiodun mfr.
