Nigeria’s leading real estate development and construction company, Dukiya investments, has launched its latest project, Nairobi Estate, in Ibadan, Oyo State capital.
The estate, which is located in Moniya area of Ibadan, is the latest addition to Dukiya’s portfolio of real estate projects across Lagos, Ogun and Kwara States.
Over the last three years, the company has successfully developed and delivered real estate projects in 12 locations, while expanding to other locations in Africa, Europe and Central America.
Some of the projects already executed by Dukiya, include; Oakside, Ibeju Lekki, The Cabanas, Odo-iragushin Epe, Ontario, Noforija Epe, Rio Residential, Mojoda Epe, Norway District I, Ilara Epe, Norway District II, Mojoda Epe, The Atlantic View, Poka Epe, Golden City Phase 1 & 2, Kobape Abeokuta, and Ontario, Ilorin.
According to Lukman Shobowale, Co-founder of Dukiya Investment, Nairobi was curated with its customers in mind. He said, the location will provide a blend of urban and countryside living experience, in a central location, that boast of leading institutions and public infrastructure such as Ibadan dry port, Ibadan train station, Iseyin expressway, Global Agricultural Research Institute (IITA) and Premier University.
Speaking further on the historic launch, Shobowale said the choice of Moniya in Ibadan was very unique, as the company’s latest expansion project. He explained that aside Ibadan’s already established status as the largest city in Africa, it is also currently reputed as one of the fastest growing cities in west Africa, with major potential for investment, population growth, infrastructural development, businesses and urban-renewal.
“Ibadan is also projected to benefit from the current migration of people and businesses from Lagos. This is in addition to the near-completion of the Lagos-Ibadan expressway and the Lagos-Ibadan train service, which has made mobility seamless. There is no doubt that Ibadan is now the city to beat,” Shobowale added.
For his part, Babatunde Bayo Lawal, Co-founder Dukiya Investments, said Nairobi represents Dukiya’s renewed commitment to its strategic objective of reinventing comfort and helping customers meet their real estate objectives.
According to Lawal, Dukiya was convinced that the real estate sector has the potential to translate into greater economic prospect for Nigeria and the company is vigorously committed to lead the effort on the provision of accessible real estate investments to its customers.
Lawal added that Nairobi estate, Moniya, comes with among other things, a modern perimeter fencing, that will guide against future encroachment from land grabbers, a gatehouse for security surveillance, and a conducive environment.
Lawal said he has no doubt that Nairobi will be a strategic investment for any customer, that is either looking to make a high returns real-estate investment or a conducive environment to build a home in a fast-rising city.
