The summit was officially opened by His Excellency, Governor Babatunde Fashola (Governor of Lagos State). Speaking on education as key to ignite the F.I.R.E the Governor described the issue as a serious matter of self and public education that must be undertaken before everyone fully comprehends issues of mortgage and affordable housing—access to which is a fundamental human right of citizens to their government.

Prior to his speech, the Governor had been introduced by Ruth Obih (CEO of 3Invest; organizers of the Real Estate Summit). In her introduction, she said, “We believe that Africa’s largest economy has a strong role to play in making real estate a major contributor to national GDPs across the continent; thus the event brings together global experts to uncover untapped opportunities within the industry.

Keynoting the F.I.R.E panels respectively were Real Estate leaders such as Kunle Osilaja (Head Real Estate Ecobank); Olumide Olusanya (Professor of Real Estate at Unilag) and Hakeem Ogunniran (Managing Director, UPDC).

The day then wrapped up with the annual Awards gala where the best of the industry were celebrated in twelve categories of winners selected from a competitive pool put forward and voted on by the public. The winners of the Real Estate Unite 2014 Awards were announced as follows:

    Is Julius Berger the only construction company in Nigeria? Where are the others, where is the competition? And with real estate, who covers risk management? Where are the actuaries and insurance companies?

    I see purpose in display; it’s about knowing where you belong and stay consistent. Outstanding programme coordination I guess! Great work.
