Tunde Adeyemo, Chief Executive Officer of Pelican Valley Nig. Ltd, is not a professional town planner, neither is he an architect, engineer, builder or environmentalist! But the exploits of the Ibadan-born proactive journalist in real estate has made people wondered whether journalism, his choice of profession was not a mistake.
However, youthful Adeyemo, in his early forties, is always quick in his response, that he could not have gotten the leverage he received from the noble journalism profession, saying that it opened and is still opening many doors of opportunities for him.
The Correspondent of the MITV in Ogun State, is doing a commendable job in Abeokuta, not only in journalism, which brought him to the gateway capital from Lagos, many years back, but also in real estate through his business outfit, The Pelican Valley.
Through Pelican, Adeyemo has complemented governments, both at the state and federal levels to meet the housing needs of many Nigerians, through provision of affordable housing programmes.
What Adeyemo has turned the once hilly thick bush of the Arobiologbo Village to within six years, leaves tongue wagging that he must have probably studied engineering and town planning from his mother’s womb.
It is difficult to believe the transformation that has taken place within such a short time, about seven years in Pelican, a place where many prospective landlords, who visited, once rejected because of its bareness, locality and haven for wild animals and other reasons.
Today, Pelican Valley is a success story; a reference point in real estate development in Ogun State through the ingenuity of Adeyemo, who continues to dazzle clients, professional colleagues, business associates with uncommon innovations. This usually endears him to customers within Ogun State, Nigeria and indeed outside the country, that strive to own a parcel of land from the well-planned ‘unusual homes’ of Pelican Estates in Abeokuta.
Adeyemo’s resolve to look beyond journalism practice, which brought him to the political capital of the Egbaland has really paid off as he ranks among top real estate merchants in the state capital with what he termed ‘Property-Journalism Entrepreneurship’.
His first pet project, Pelican Valley, which is just less than five minutes’ drive from the Abeokuta train main station, named after the Noble Laureate, Professor Wole Soyinka, though today a success story, was a big challenge and tough for the enterprising real estate merchant who later surmounted the odds.
