“By next year we will be launching the low cost housing which will entail three bedroom flats, two bedroom flat and one bedroom flat and we will be the first company in Nigeria to commercially render self contain that people can buy and own .
“We want to break it down so that even the students can own houses,” he said.
China pledged have 100 non-biological children, apart from biological children which would have property to inherit thereby creating value for money through social funding scheme.
He said that this vision what started the drive of becoming the mayor of housing.
“I made social funding a self determining model which is better than mortgage. It does not require government support, it does not require investors fund or individual support.
“ We were able to take lifestyle up from Zero naira in 2018 to N20 billion in asset in 2021 without government help or investment.
“ It is just by our contributing help of social fund. The backbone and the spirit of a Nigerian person is the spirit of collaboration and cooperation,” he said.
He therefore called on the leaders to build on the grounds of cooperation as unity was the only solution to dissolving impossibilities.
