Some real estate experts have described Lagos State as a land with many opportunities yet to be discovered.
A Co-founder of Pertinence Group, Mr Wisdom Ezekiel, explained this during a press conference on Wealth Summit 2021 themed: ‘The Real Money of Lagos’ on Tuesday
He hinted that the wealth of Lagos resides in every sector of the State’s economy but required knowledge to unravel it.
He added that there are some identified and unidentified challenges faced by residents n Lagos that required solutions.
“If you look at the challenges of Lagos, you would mention traffic, bad roads and a couple of others; but mention real estate you would say that is much more problematic.
“The thing about challenges is that once you see one, realise that there is money in there. If you solve the problem, you get paid for it. So the real money of Lagos is in solving problems.
“If you can solve the problem of the people of Lagos, it means that you make the money that is in Lagos.” Ezekiel posited.
Meanwhile, the Group CEO, Pertinence Group, Dr. Stephen Oluwatobi, added that many still believe that money making is mystical and dedicated to family pedigree.
“The wealth summit is an initiative of Pertinence Group and the idea is to help people capitalise on the opportunities available in Lagos. Our mission is to empower people and that’s why we are an enterprise development and people empowerment company and to do that we need to educate people about wealth creation and money so that people stop thinking that making money is mystical but attainable by anyone.”
Oluwatobi listed the lineup of guest speakers for the July 10 summit to include: Debola Williams, Olumide Emmanuel, Sam Adeyemi, Sunday Olorunsheyi, Wisdom Ezekiel, Akin Alabi and Ali Baba,.
