Nigeria’s leading real estate company, Property World Africa Network, (PWAN) Group, has inaugurated an affiliate office in Ughelli, Ughelli North Local Government Area of Delta State.
The office named PWAN Potters will coordinate the growing activities of the firm in Ughelli, Isoko, Anioma and other parts of Delta State in providing affordable lands and housing for its customers.
PWAN Group is also the operator of Celebrity City, Ogor, near Ughelli, and several other estates across the state.
The new office located along the popular Dumez (East-West) Road, Opposite First Bank, Ughelli, was unveiled by the revered Ovie of Ughelli Kingdom, HRM Oharisi III.
Chairman of PWAN Group, Dr. Augustine Onwumere, said the firm’s vision is to ensure that every Nigerian becomes a house owner in Delta and other states of the country.
According to him, as part of its vision to reduce unemployment, PWAN Group is also providing a platform to gainfully engage youths in Ughelli and its environs.
He said, “Our vision is to come and develop this place, that’s why I believe this event to be an historic one and it is the beginning of a new dawn for the entire Ughelli North local government and environs.
“One of the major challenges we face today is insecurity, which many experts both in government and outside government have attributed to the high unemployment rate in the country, and that has been one of our major area of focus, which is to address insecurity and youth restiveness through job creation, engaging the youths. This is why I will urge the youths to embrace this opportunity.”
Speaking in the same vein, the Group Managing Director (GMD), PWAN Potters, Dr. Mrs Jayne Onwumere observed that, apart from providing opportunities for people to own their own choice houses, the organisation also gives opportunity to people to earn a living for themselves.
She said, “Nigeria today is trying to diversify, which is to tell you that the oil business is already failing, real estate is a business that gives opportunity to everyone both old and young and it is one of the fast growing business all over today. So we are simply saying people should be in real estate.
“We are here to help the people embrace a system that can pay them for life. Our operation is like an empowerment system. Currently we are in 16 states in Nigeria with over 30 affiliates.
“What we do is to give opportunity for people to partner with us, we train people, and that is why we have our seminar hall up there, equip them with the required knowledge and skill to succeed in this business.
“We also help both low and high income earners to acquire landed properties and even a home without stress through a programme that allows them make convenient installmental payments over a convenient period of time.”
