The NIDO Housing Investment Summit will take place simultaneously with the organisation’s annual meeting in Lisbon. The event, which will be attended by real estate companies from Nigeria, international property investors, banks, among others, is intended to attract Diaspora investment into the real estate sector in Nigeria.
“The NIDO Housing Investment Summit will gather the full spectrum of Nigeria’s real estate sector and will assist companies to secure international investment for commercial real estate development and infrastructure projects,” Gbandi said.
He added that the summit is a veritable forum for state and municipal governments in Nigeria to seek partnership in the realisation of their infrastructure projects that will contribute to their urban development plans.
Among the real estate and infrastructure professionals who will descend on the Portuguese capital for the summit are Pastor Kayode Obembe (CEO, Kayode Obembe & Co Limited, Lagos), Pela Kennedy Kawhariebie (CEO, Citi Props Limited, Lagos), Odusola Babajide Oluwole (MD, Ogun State Property Investment Corporation), and Engr. Ajayi Sunday Olugbenga (Managing partner/CEO, Asonic Associates Limited, Abuja).

The housing summit is also a property buyer show as well, explained the NIDOE chief.  “The event is the ideal platform for anyone looking to own and invest in property in Nigeria. The innovative exhibition layout is designed to walk buyers through the property buying process,” explained Gbandi.
On why the organisation is focussing on housing in its investment promotion drive, Gbandi said: “In good times and bad, investment in real estate has proven a sound option.”
