Revolution Plus Property Vs Kayode Oladipo: Lagos State Real Estate Regulatory Authority Intervenes…..

Published

on

Sequel to the false allegations made by Mr. Kayode Oladipo, that the Company collected the sum of 40 Million(Forty Million Naira) from him without allotting him the land he paid for, The Lagos State Government(LASG) invited our Company to intervene in the matter.

 

The meeting which took place on Friday, 19th January 2024, by 10 am took place at the LASRERA Office Alausa, where the Commissioner for Housing, Moruf Akinderu Fatai, the Special Adviser to the Governor Housing, Barakat Odunuga Bakare, the Permanent Secretary, Lagos State Ministry of Housing, LASRERA Officials and Revolutionplus Property Development Company’s CEO, Dr Bamidele Onalaja, the GED, Mrs Tolulope Onalaja and other officials in the Company were in attendance.

 

In trying to mediate in the matter, Mr. Kayode Oladipo was given a call and he indeed admitted upon questioning that he lost his job at a point and could not proceed with payment of the required fees as expected and within the stipulated time frame, Mr. Kayode Oladipo also confirmed that he didn’t pay the sum of Forty Million Naira N40,000,000) as alleged in the viral video but paid the sum of N18,000,000. In response to his claims, the GED of Revolutionplus Property refuted the claims of the N18,000,000 allegedly paid by Mr. Kayode Oladipo, stating with evidence that the total sum paid to the Company was N16, 752,000(Sixteen Million, Seven Hundred and Fifty Two Thousand Naira only). Attached herewith are the evidence of payment in this regard.

 

Upon further discussion, Mr. Kayode Oladipo also admitted that he indeed bought the plots of land in 2017 and could not complete payment because he lost his job. He claimed that he came back in 2020, but the CEO of Revolutionplus refuted his claims and reiterated that he was only aware that Mr. Kayode Oladipo came back in 2022, six years after his initial payment, demanding to be allotted the same land he subscribed for in 2017, despite his default in payment.

 

The CEO met with Mr Kayode Oladipo and empathized with him over his financial plight, and further explained the penalties attached to default in payment to him as stipulated in the contract signed by parties. The CEO stated that the Company in its commitment to priotizing its customers, will make other options available for him in the equivalence of the monies he had paid. Furthermore, the CEO of Revolutionplus Property, Dr Bamidele Onalaja appreciated his Excellency, the Lagos State Governor, Babajide Sanwoolu, for stepping into the matter and giving room for the company to state her side of the story.

 

The CEO also stated that out of respect for the Lagos State Government, and the relevant bodies assigned to regulate the real estate industry in Lagos State, the company was willing to allocate lands in another location at one of its Estates, Amazon Estate, Epe.

 

The CEO expressed displeasure at the slanderous coloration given to the video explaining that the Company had been doing business for years and had continued to operate within the ambits of the law despite all challenges posed to the business in Nigeria. The CEO also stated that Revolution plus Property had served a lot of Nigerians in the diaspora and had continued to work with the vision of the Lagos State Government to attract investors from the diaspora especially in the real estate industry. To resolve the matter, the Commissioner for Housing appealed to both parties to tow the part of peace, and it was decided thus:

 

• That Mr Kayode Oladipo would do a Video the next day appreciating the Lagos State Government for mediating and resolving the issue That in the said Video, Mr Kayode Oladipo will do a retraction of his distorted allegations of fraud, and state emphatically that Revolutionplus Property did not set out to dupe, defraud or scam him.

 

 

• That when the video is done, the alternative land promised by the Company in the equivalence of the monies paid will be immediately allotted to Mr. Kayode Oladipo the same week, the retraction is done. Whilst we are still waiting for Mr. Kayode Oladipo to do the Video as promised in the meeting.

We wish to appreciate the Lagos State Government for stepping in as a mediator to resolve the issue, We also appreciate all our esteemed customers who reached out to us to encourage us and stand by us in the heat of the issue. We are committed to service and customer satisfaction and we will not relent.

Julius Abure the national chairman of the Labour Party (LP), has been arrested by the police in Benin City, Edo State.

It is currently unclear the reason behind his arrest but sources say it may not be unconnected with the recent crisis rocking the party.

Recently, he was accused of forging the signatures of some political aspirants in Ebonyi and Plateau States.

Now, it has taken another dimension. This time around, it is financial allegations. Allegations coming from no other person than the national treasurer of the party, Mrs Oluchi Oparah. The Exchequer of the Labour party who is supposed to be 100% in the know of the party’s finances accused Abure of forging the signatures of the party’s late national chairman, Abdulkadir Abdulsalam to withdraw funds totalling N21 million.

Before this most recent allegation, a governorship aspirant of the party from Ebonyi state, Mr. Eze Oko, had accused the Party’s National Chairman of alleged forgery and conspiracy that led to his replacement few days to the March 18 gubernatorial election.

Specifically, Oko alleged that at the heat of political activities leading to the gubernatorial election in Ebonyi state, the national chairman initiated moves to illegally remove him as the gubernatorial candidate with an alleged forged withdrawal letter submitted to the Independent National Electoral Commission, (INEC).

Published

Adewale Tinubu, CON, boss of energy giant, Oando Group, is always a delight to watch when in the boardroom or engaged in anything concerning business.

He usually leaves his watchers and admirers enthralled by his articulation and aplomb. He is always graceful in his fine grasp of business intricacies, with a very strong sense of deep erudition in discussions, especially in the area of economic development in Nigeria.

Of course, the foregoing may not be news to many. But what many may not know about this technocrat is that beyond his feats in the oil sector, he is endowed with oratorical power.

 That excellent trait was much on display at the ongoing Guyana Energy Conference, where the top oil player once again showcased his God-given talent.

While speaking on the topic, ‘Upstream Activities Required for a Resilient Oil and Gas Value Chain, the oil and gas mogul received intermittent standing ovations, accompanied with several rounds of applause for his dazzling and awe-inspiring speech.

Oando, Africa’s largest integrated energy solutions provider, is diamond sponsor of the third edition of the Guyana Energy Conference and Supply Chain Expo, which started on Monday, 19th February to Thursday, 22nd, 2024, attracted participation, at the highest level, from more than 21 countries also drawn in 19 sectors – outside of the energy sector.

 Participating companies at the conference tackled important concerns affecting the energy sector, as well as the challenges of climate change mitigation and maximizing the benefits of local content development in Guyana and the region.

Commenting on the conference, Mr. Tinubu posted on his social media handles.

He wrote:

 ‘’Spent the last two days at the Energy Guyana Conference and Supply Chain Expo – a first time attendee and 3rd time visitor to this beautiful country.

Myself and the #HumansofOando welcomed the President of Guyana, Dr Mohamed Irfaa1, the Prime Minister of Trinidad and Tobago Dr Keith Rowley and the Minister of Petroleum, (Trinidad and Tobago) Stuart RYoung 1 to our exhibition booth, where we walked them through Oando’s journey to date in curating Nigeria’s energy mix.

The oil and gas industry in Guyana is rapidly evolving, thus the importance of creating an enabling environment for growth cannot be understated.

Yesterday, I delivered a keynote address to industry leaders and other esteemed guests explaining the winning Oil and Gas Industry Strategy.

With the warm welcome we received we are assured of promising collaboration towards successful oil and gas venturing in Guyana’’.

Other speakers at the event include His Excellency, Dr Mohamed Irfan Ali, President of the Co-operative Republic of Guyana; Bharrat Jagdeo, Vice President, The Cooperative Republic of Guyana; the Honourable Vickram Bharrat, Minister of Natural Resources, The Co-operative Republic of Guyana; Stuart Young, Minister of Energy and Energy Industries, the Republic of Trinidad and Tobago; Antonio Almonte, Minister of Energy and Mines, the Dominican Republic; His Excellency, Sheikh Mohammed bin Abdulrahman Bin Jassim Al Thani, Prime Minister of the State of Qatar; Alistair Routledge, President, Exxonmobil Guyana and Her Excellency Jane Miller OBE, British High Commissioner to the Co-operative Republic of Guyana, among several other world class personalities.

Hope In Time Of Crisis: A Call For Unwaivering Faith In Nigeria.

Published

By: Ayobami Ladipo

 

 

Dear Nigerian Youths, Friends and The Social Media Community.

 

I feel the need to share some words with you this morning, not just for communication sake but because it’s the right thing to do at a time like this when we’re all groaning in pains.

 

Indeed, times are hard, the pain is unbearable, the cost of living has tripled and ripple effect of the current economic hardship on the common man can only be imagined.

 

Truth be told, we are all SUFFERING!

 

Let’s take a moment to situate this correctly, especially for those of us who are not public office holders but campaigned for President Bola Ahmed Tinubu, believed in the manifesto and still optimistic that he’ll deliver his good promises to Nigerians, it’s not been easy.

 

Believing in a mantra or giving support to the president at a time like this does not take away the pain, it doesn’t not alienate me or any of his supporters from the people or the present economic hardship, it just shows that we still believe that pain is normal when something good is about to be spring forth.

 

Standing on the mandate no mean say leg no dey pain oh, but just like Isaac believed in Abraham his father to the point of death when he had thought he would be slaughtered as a sacrifice to God before the Almighty provided a ram, we also believe that the ongoing reforms will yield a great result and restore our country’s lost glory.

 

When we stop believing, hope fades away and nothing good will come through, hence the PLEA for calm and for us all to put aside our political or ethnic differences right now, let’s persevere a little more and keep up the conversation for a better and working Nigeria.

 

We won’t stop talking, we won’t stop engaging government, we won’t stop registering our displeasure via the right channels but PLEASE let’s come together as one and show some love to one another at this trying time.

 

Just like the Bible says, weeping may endure for the night but joy cometh in the morning, May the joy of Nigeria come so quick and May we all be alive to witness a new Nigeria that’ll be full of prosperity and greatness .

 

As I conclude, I want to plead with you all that we refrain from the needless curses, insults and abuse, WE ARE ALL IN THIS TOGETHER and TOGETHER shall we witness greatness at the end.

 

Naija Shi Ma Dun

 

God Bless Nigeria 🇳🇬🙏🇳🇬
