…Firm Poised To Attract One Million Pound Investments To Ogun
By Rebecca Adeniran, Abeokuta
Foremost realtor, Dr. Babatunde Adeyemo, has declared that given the prevailing current exchange rate that placed foreign currencies like the pounds sterling and dollars ahead of the Naira, there is no better time for Nigerians living abroad to invest their idle funds in the lucrative real estate business back home than now.
Dr. Adeyemo, who is the Chief Executive Officer(CEO) of Pelican Valley Nigeria Limited, said Nigerians living in the UK, United States, Canada or Ireland are at a advantageous position to grab the favourable exchange rate climate that placed more value on the pounds, dollars and euros today, urging them to channel their funds to the secured and high R.O.I real estate business of Pellican-Valley Nigeria Ltd.
“It is good for people to invest now, most especially Nigerians in diaspora, they are really in advantageous position because the exchange rate is favourable to them and they can easily key into real estate business and it will multiply their Return on Investments (ROI). So, it is a good opportunity for them to key into the real estate business now,” he said.
Adeyemo who is a recently inducted ECOWAS Youth Ambassador and anti curruption ambassador gave the advice in an exclusive interview with our reporter, revealing that Pelican Valley Nigeria Limited had been billed to show case its range of products, offer real estate advisory and also flash his proven, secured real estate investment at the forthcoming London AVI Networking Event 2023, which will be focusing on property portfolio management, investments in Nigeria.
He explained that the event slated for December 2, 2023 in London, is being put together by equally a London – based Avenue Impact Training & Consulting Limited, a firm that assists immigrants with the necessary trainings required to take informed business decision in terms of career choice, field of endeavours and the better place that can help them achieve their legitimate life ambitions.
Ambassador Adeyemo expresses the confidence that the multiple award winning Pelican Valley Nig Ltd would be attracting to the Gateway State no fewer than One million Pounds investments from the Property Portfolio and Management Investments event in London, saying the project is going to be mutually beneficial.
On the London, AVI Networking Event 2023
Avenue Impact Consulting provides guidance and assistance to immigrants in the diaspora residing in the UK, USA, Canada, Australia, UAE and Europe, enabling them to establish themselves and pursue careers in Project Management. Many of their candidates have successfully transitioned into senior consulting roles for prominent international companies, assuming positions such as Program Managers, Project Managers, Product Managers, Business Analysts, Agile Delivery Leads/Managers, Software Testers, and Cyber Security Leads. They contribute to enhancing these organizations’ digital business processes through their expertise.
What AVI is trying to do now is that, having helped her members to fully integrate into the system, they are now propelling members to take an informed decision on how to invest their hard earned funds wisely. The beauty of travelling abroad is to bring all goodies acquired over there back home successfully. The AVI have actually independently conducted their research and due diligence on Pelican Valley Nigeria Limited and they have now successfully helped their members to take a wise and informed investment decisions about a viable and trustworthy organisation that their members can invest their funds in and have peace of mind. I think they really researched about us, checked our track records, goodwill, delivery and realised that we are of good reputation before reaching out to me personally to come over to London and enlighten their members on how to take a full advantage of the real estate investment in Nigeria through Pelican Valley.
Real estate business is highly lucrative and if I, could personally take it from almost the lowest strata of the society to this level that God has placed us, I can also help those that have the funds too, not only those with idle funds but also others that are looking at those positive and secured investments that would break-even and give a high RoI within a short period of time.
There is something you cannot take away from real estate business, that is Integrity and Goodwill. You need integrity to make your business thrive and not to cut corners of cheat investors.
You need to invest with someone with a proven track records of integrity and goodwill so that your real estate investment can be secured. Let me shock you, 90% of Nigerians in diaspora who are investing in real estate had actually got their hands burnt, because most of them are unable to reach out to realtors who can secure their investments. And it takes someone with clean character, prudency and great integrity to secure real estate on behalf of any individual. It is very evident in our track record that we have been into this real estate business for almost 14 years now without a single court or police case and when you check our reviews, u will discover that we have 100% positive reviews on all our public platforms. So, it would be a wonderful opportunity for those that are willing to invest and get a high RoI to take full advantage. Take for instance the Pelican Valley Estate which we started selling land there at N800k about eight years ago,today, a plot of land there is N20million, also Pelican Brief Estate in Kobape, we started selling land at N785k but today, it is N5million per plot. I know in the next three years, it will shoot up to N10million. So, it is good for people to invest now, most especially Nigerians in diaspora, they are really in vantage position because the exchange rate is favourable to them and they can easily key into real estate business and it will multiply RoI for them. So, it is a good opportunity for them to key in.

Every plot in Pelican Brief has electricity pole in front of it, with Fully energised serviced wires. It is the only estate that has a “FULL” GOVERNMENT APPROVED LAYOUT in Ogun State for the first three and half years of the present administration in Ogun State. Pelican Brief has so many fully subscribed diasporan clients, which influence the naming of some of our streets after their base, among those names are Ontario drive, Manitoba drive and so on..we cannot rule out the possibility of having a AVI drive or London avenue in the nearest future. Pelican Brief presently has over one hundred and fifty building approvals with over fifty ongoing constructions.
We’ve done all our beacon sheet (Ready-made registered surveys for all plots), when you buy our lands and pay in full, you get allocation almost immediately you are ready for development. These are type of products the Diaspora needs. The Estate is less than 15 minutes from the Prof. Wole Soyinka train station, which connects Ogun State to Lagos, Ibadan and in the long-term, all the 36 State capitals in the Nigerian Federation.
Another product is Pelican Ecostay apartments. Pelican Ecostay apartments is just one part of Pelican Brief Estate, there we have started building one bedroom studio apartments, two bedroom apartments, three bedroom apartments and three bedroom duplexes.

Those are some of the unique advantages of our products, you can call it our unique selling points. We also have Pelican Valley Greenish Acres Farm Estate, which is a by – product of Pelican-Brief Estate and the Pelican”s Ecostay Apartments. The idea is to have a place not too far away from the estates whereby our clients and residents can easily go to get fresh vegetables and farm products, to complement the dreams of Ecostay apartment and make people live natural and eat natural. We discovered that about 80% of our clients in the diaspora are 55 years old upward and most of them are ready to come back home in retirement and once they got home, they would need something to keep body and soul together. That was why we have the farm estate. It is about 1.5kilometer away from the Pelican Brief Estate and Pelican’s Ecostay Apartments. They can just take a walk up from their houses to their farms, eat fresh vegetables that the body needs and jug back home. It is a way of promoting wellness and healthful living and future. So, those are the products we are planning to introduce to Nigerians in diaspora started from London, this December, Gods willing. Our ranges of products are interwoven, interconnected and interrelated.
