Description


In so many ways, Nigeria looks like an investor's dream. Africa's largest economy has an emerging middle class eager to shop in modern stores, live in nicer houses and work in glamorous offices. The country has a shortage of all types of modern space, raising the likelihood that the market will favour landlords for years to come. For a lot of Nigerians living in the Diaspora and friends of Nigeria, the opportunity to invest in the Nigerian market is attractive to them but the lack of information makes this challenging.

Join us as we attempt to shed light on the Nigerian Real Estate Market. Our speaker on the night will deliver a comprehensive insight into the property space in Nigeria. Some of the topics for discussion will be

• Past, Present and Future trends in the market

• Growth prospects of the market

• What are the Opportunities and Challenges of investing in the market


MEET OUR SPEAKER:

Richard Obahor -CEO Purple Premium Ltd

Richard Obahor is the CEO of Purple Premium Ltd, a U.K./Nigeria based Real Estate Company considers himself to have a dyed-in-the-wool attitude to accomplishment, doggedness and resilience.

Richard’s career first started in the Real Estate industry in 2003 with Alandale Construction UK, where he worked as a Senior Manager on multi-million pound projects like the Bankside 123 in the City of London, Tower Place, and Westfield Shopping Centre in West London. He set up his first Real Estate Company in the U.K. in 2008, offering property acquisition, property development, and property management services to his ultra-high net worth clients. Soon after, he integrated into the Nigerian property market, catering for the demands of Nigerians based in the Diaspora whose intention is to own a home in Nigeria, but rather than transact with individuals would prefer to do business with a reputable company. The company now develops quality luxury homes. His philosophy is that if you would dream anyway, you might as well dream big and his vision is to build 2022 homes right across Nigeria, Ghana, Sierra Leone and Kenya by the year 2022, to house Africans living in the Diaspora.

Richard is a very firm believer in community development and under his corporate social responsibilities supports numerous community programmes right across Nigeria and the United Kingdom.

The serial entrepreneur, who is also a notable public speaker, a writer and a business mentor, has garnered several skills and experience from reputable professional institutions. He has been celebrated with a number of very prestigious, industry leading awards including the BEFFTA 2016 Leadership award, the 2016 Gathering of Africa’s (GAB) awards for Excellence and the 2017 Best Nigerian Real Estate Player in the Diaspora award.

Richard believes that to win you have to be in the game, and because he is in the game for the long haul he is looking forward to a number of huge wins. He is married to Joan and has three wonderful children.
