SUJIMOTO – In 2009, Barack Obama bagged the Nobel Peace Prize for his “extraordinary efforts to strengthen international diplomacy and cooperation between peoples”. This award was given to him not because of what he had achieved but for the projection of what he could achieve.


To understand the future of a dynamic company, you would need to measure their past glory, the present achievements and the expected trajectory of their future accomplishments. This is why Business Day has recognized Sujimoto Group as a leader in the real estate industry, not only because of what it has achieved in the past but as a result of its numerous audacious multi-billion dollar goals it has set for itself for the next 10 years. Sujimoto Group, alongside industry giants; Septlat Energy Plc, Dangote Cement Plc, FBN Holding Plc and MTN Nigerian Communications Plc., were part of the winners at the 8th edition of the Nigerian Investor Value Awards – NIVA 2022.


As a world class real estate brand that is constantly changing the narrative of luxury living in Africa, Sujimoto Constructions Ltd was the only Luxury Real Estate brand recognized as the prestigious recipient of the Next Bulls Award – one that recognizes private companies that have built strong national brands, established strong market share and set a reputation for world class standards and processes.

Speaking about the award, the Group Managing Director Mr. Sijibomi Ogundele said;


“When we started this company, we had only 1 staff, today we have over 500 active staff. Many thought we couldn’t even build a kitchen, now, we are building 15-storey buildings, currently planning the development of a 44-storey Twin Towers. These are only possible because the fundamental philosophy of what is deeply rooted in the Sjimoto brand is the D.I.E philosophy – Diligence, Integrity, Excellence. The diligence of going the extra mile, the Integrity of being a man of your word and doing what we say we will do and the Excellence of providing quality products that ensures we leave our clients better than we met them.


Speaking about Sujimoto’s New Project, Mr. Ogundele said:

Our results speak for us. Report cards don´t deceive, rather, they are key indicators of performance; reminding us of what we have done right, where we are now, and what we can do better.


He went further to emphasize, “Innovation must be the foundation of our projects, and diligence should be embedded in our DNA. More than ever, I appreciate those lessons from my past, as they have given me an edge in the world of business, amongst local and international competitors, reminding me that right from the stages of planning and architectural design, mediocrity isn´t an option; and if we want to be top 3 in Africa and top 10 in the world, we need to review our internal structure, create a competitive advantage, also be prudent in our OPEX and CAPEX as well as creating a decentralised corporate governance system.”

Sijibomi Ogundele, the undisputed Luxury real estate maestro is the developer of the iconic Lucrezia By Sujimoto tower in Banana Island, the much-talked about LeonardoBySujimoto – a 25-storey waterfront high-rise, and the powerful initiative – Sujimoto Twin Towers – a luxurious but affordable housing scheme where with as little as $380,000 anyone can experience a piece of the luxury Sujimoto Group offers. Ogundele is obviously becoming a force to be reckoned with in his generation and this young entrepreneur who emerged from Agege to become the youngest Billionaire in Nigeria, is not resting on his laurels.

Primate Ayodele’s Prophecy Fulfilled As Godswill Akpabio Faces Impeachment Threat (VIDEO)



The emergence of Godswill Akpabio as the senate president of Nigeria may have been approved physically but spiritually, there were pockets of resistance for his leadership. This claim has now been authenticated following the impeachment threats currently facing the politician.


Long before the senate presidency election, the electorates were warned by Primate Ayodele about the choice of their candidate. The global prophet went as far as mentioning names of candidates that have the approval of God but in the usual character of Nigerian politicians, they ignored.


Primate Ayodele repeatedly said that an Igbo person is the right candidate to become the next senate president but the most prominent person in that category wasn’t allowed to get the seat, the electorates threw their weight behind Godswill Akpabio.


It would also be recalled that immediately Akpabio won, Primate Ayodele stated that there would be problems in the house. Some supporters of the politician thought Primate Ayodele had a personal issue with their principal and went on to verbally attack the prophet. Little did they know that it won’t even take long before things unfold.


In a video shared on Primate Ayodele’s tiktok account in August, the prophet clearly revealed that some people will launch an attack of impeachment on Godswill Akpabio. Every normal person would have thought this will not come to pass anytime soon because the government is still new and there were no issues at the time Primate Ayodele released that prophecy but prophets don’t operate on the normal realm, they have the ability to see stillness in the midst of a raging storm and a raging storm in the midst of stillness.


These were the words of Primate Ayodele:


‘’I see that some people will launch attack of impeachment on Akpabio, they will condemn him and will begin to have problems.’’


As the prophet revealed, reports making rounds have it that the Senate President is going through an impeachment attack which was launched by two senators from the north. According to the reports, former governors who are also in the senate have joined the league of senators seeking for the impeachment of Godswill Akpabio.
