The real estate development as taking a new shape and job creation in the country according to the Nigerian institution of Estate Surveyors and Valuers (NIESV) is set to partner with the Executive Producer of the TV programme, Real Estate Today M.I. Okoro & Associates, Dr Meckson Okoro.
When paying a courtesy visit to the new President of NIESV, Emma Okas Woke in Lagos, recently, Okoro said they are ready to partner with them and the partnership will be a rewarding one. The meeting was predicated on four major policy thrusts for real estate development in the country.
While talking to newsmen he said the purpose of the partnership is to create a very strong bridge between the federal government and Nigerian institution of Estate Surveyors and Valuers, in other to assist the government at all costs in other to generate all the necessary funds to finance government activities without borrowing or depend on oil, particularly in this era of COVID-19 pandemic in the world.
The both parties later agreed that the ongoing National Advocacy and publicity drive established by the immediate past regime of NIESV, in which Okoro was the Chairman, it is a must to continue creating postivite impact within Nigerian Public. They noted that, within a very short time, the advocacy and publicity drive would stamp in the heart of the Nigerian public the identify of professional estate surveyors and valuers without the confusion of who estate surveyors and valuers are, as presently the case in Nigeria.
The meeting further x-rayed the viability of using the National Real Estate Today and NIESV Half-hour, two TV programmes sponsored by Okoro and NIESV respectively, to generate jobs for members of the professional body through active penetration in government, corporate organisations and multinational companies.
Both parties, however, agreed to collaborate effectively in using the advocacy and publicity machineries and platforms at their disposal to maximise and polish the image of NIESV and promote their membership.
The President of NIESV commended Dr Chief M l Okoro whom he said “has sacrificed a lot of his resources for the image of NIESV”, and promised to discuss with the Council of the institution in order to fashion out a way to support National Real Estate Today which is the brain child of Okoro.
In his response, Okoro noted that the incumbent President of NIESV was his assistant when he (Okoro) was the National Publicity Secretary of institution. The popular real estate professional recalled the peaceful working relationship with Wike, hinged on serving their institution better than they met it. He commended Wike for rising to become the President of NIESV, while promising to deploy his contacts and resources towards making him succeed in office.
