Former Chairman of Assets Management Corporation of Nigeria (AMCON), Muiz Banire, has said Nigeria needs a more standard market to help relocate roadside sellers and also grow Nigeria’s economy. 

The former Lagos State Commissioner made this assertion while speaking at the inauguration of a real estate new office in Ajah area of Lagos State.

Banire while making a case for market women said it is time to prioritise women in society to ensure rapid growth in the country’s economy. 

He said, “We now have no other option that just helps our women boost their business, they are the most populated in the market and definitely this contributes largely to our GDP. 

“We must also thank Golden Bricks Realty And Investment Ltd for their interest in building marketplaces against residential buildings which always interest realtors. I appreciate this company and I celebrate with them,” he added.  

Speaking at the event, the Chief executive officer of Golden Bricks Realty And Investment Ltd, Okusanya Oyeyemi further said the commissioned market, malls and cinema were made possible through a Public Private Partnership agreement with the Oyo state government. 

Mr Oyeyemi added that he has begun the move to construct over 10,000 affordable market points and buildings in its bid to reward its customers’ loyalty across the Southwestern part of Nigeria. 

Mr Oyeyemi noted that the 10,000 housing units will be scattered across choice areas in the state capitals across the six states of the Southwest. 

He explained that the market places and buildings are targeted at easing the struggle to own residences and trading points by their already existing and emerging clients. 

While commending members of staff and management of the company, Mr Oyeyemi said he can’t appreciate the workers enough for their dedication toward the many successes the company has achieved in its 11 years of existence. 

Also speaking at the event, Group Chairman Ojulowo Omoluabi Empire Holdings, Dr Victor Eniola Mark, congratulates Mr Oyeyemi for his sterling achievement.
