Lekki conference our little help to unemployed youths, says Ubamadu
As part of its social responsibility, the Church of God Mission, Garden City, Lekki, Lagos, last week, held the maiden edition of its Roundtable Lekki, tagged: “Emerging Business Opportunities in Real Estate at Lekki Axis.”
The Senior Pastor of CGM, Garden City, Rev. Chris Ubamadu lamented the rising rate of unemployment, banditry, kidnapping and terrorism, reason the church decided to help youths overcome poverty.
“As a church, if we could help to tackle unemployment, perhaps, we would be able to help a few families come out of some of the issues we have identified. And that was what led to the creation of the platform we call the Roundtable Lekki Conference. It is an economic plan, networking platform, a business development plan that enables us to focus on the ability to network and bring people from various sectors for the major objective to x-ray and expose opportunities that lie in those sectors,” he said.
Ubamadu, who is also Zonal Coordinator of the ministry on the Island, addressed journalists in company of Deacon/Chairman, Planning Committee, Tseyi Ejueyitsi; Chief Executive Officer of Xtreme Mindz Solutions Ltd, Mr. Fegho Umunubo.
He said: “People should not think that real estate is only for the rich. As a matter of fact, the real estate segment in Nigeria, particularly the Lekki axis is known to be the fastest growing in Africa today.
Real Estate, according to Deacon Ejueyitsi, is not a business for newcomers to just jump into, as they would need training and adequate information.
He said: “Not everybody can jump into real estate business. Some people have tried it and failed. So, you need to get the right information from the right sources.”
In his contribution, Umunubo said his company partnered the church because Roundtable Lekki was a noble action. “For us at Xtreme Mindz, the Roundtable Lekki is in line with our CSR strategy for the year. We believe in empowering individuals, which is what the roundtable is all about,” he said.
The programme, which was free held at the church premises.
