LUCREZIA by Sujimoto
Not the impact of COVID-19 pandemic on businesses, especially the real estate sector, a renowned real estate player and Nigeria’s leading luxury property guru who is the Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer of Sujimoto Construction Limited, Mr. Sijibomi Ogundele said his company offers investors a rare opportunity of reaping over 200 per cent profit in Return on Investment (ROI) over three years.
Stressing that there is a blessing in every adversity, Ogundele said Covid-19 has indeed been a blessing in disguise for him. The renowned real estate titan, said, “I have come up with more ideas than ever and even had time to study my past and also re-assess the opportunities in real estate.
“Many have said that the real estate industry is one of the worst-hit by the Covid-19 Pandemic, but we have been here before during the last recession and we didn’t sink! Just like other times, we shall learn from it, rise and re-strategize.’ According to him, to take advantage of the opportunities ahead of us, there are three fundamental Ps we are already implementing, viz, People, Prudence, and Projects.
“Projects: We have three major projects we have in the pipeline that will bring a minimum of 200 percent ROI to Sujimoto. Most projects will last a minimum of one year, so while other organizations are in limbo, folding their hands and waiting for the pandemic to be over before they take any meaningful action, we have already started. By the time the world is ready to restart, we will be done!
Prudence: We have instituted a diligent spending culture by putting an Opportunity Per Cost (OPC) strategy to every penny spent. We shall only spend what is necessary NOW!
People: The Job market is saturated with lots of experienced hands who had been let off as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and we intend to work ONLY with the best. Therefore, we will be employing ONLY the best and the essential.
Amidst the pandemic, the Chief Executive Officer of Sujimoto Construction Limited said his company has developed a highly viable and profitable strategy and found an opportunity for savvy investors to invest N5 billion into Sujimoto and get N10 billion back in three years. This is guaranteed!
Comparing that with other forms of investments, he said treasury bills and other money market instruments will give between 5 – 10 percent ROI on investment but his offers guaranteed 200 percent ROI.
“This investment is NOT for everyone, it is ONLY for the vital few, who can identify opportunities when they see one. Please contact me directly via my email firstname.lastname@example.org, and I will be available to meet ONLY the vital serious few.
“It’s simple, we are looking for the Warren Buffets who can discern opportunities and grab them! We will not quickly forget Ronald Wayne who sold his Apple shares in 1976 for $800. Today, that share is worth 90 billion dollars!
“In all my projects, I always try to invite a few friends to invest early. Many invest with me and make 200 percent ROI, while others simply take it for granted! He added.
On the effect of claims that there are more than 2,000 empty apartments in Banana Island, Ikoyi and Victoria, Ogundele said; “When you negotiate the price of greatness, you pay the full price for mediocrity.
“For us at Sujimoto, we do not know what ‘empty apartment’ means because, in the heat of the 2016/17 recession, we sold out projects in Ikoyi.
“Our just concluded Giuliano project in Banana Island was sold-out six months before completion! Not only did we sell out, but we have also witnessed about three other resales, where a lady bought at N350 million and she sold for N480 million, making N130 million in 11months.
“At Sujimoto, we have only two things going for us, Quality and Integrity. I have no sponsors; no rich Father or powerful Aunt, all I have is my Word and addiction to Quality”, he added. Ogundele further said that many businesses will witness a change post-COVID-19 because change is the only permanent thing.
“We will be doing a lot more of commercial real estate than residential. We don’t want to do a lot of off-plan sales anymore except for special residential off-plans.
“We will also focus on building private projects for people. We are also interested in lands in Ikoyi or Banana Island for outright sale or Joint Ventures, (JVs). Anyone who has good land in a great location can contact me directly, OWNERS ONLY please”, he added.
