The Nigeria Diaspora Mortgage and Property Conference/Exhibition organized by MBAN and NMRC with the support of FMBN,REDAN and FHF has commenced today Friday 17th May in London, United Kingdom.
The 2-day event which will continue tomorrow Saturday 18th is taking place at Crowne Plaza London – Battersea, Bridges Wharf.
The conference and exhibition titled; “Home Ownership and Property Investment in Nigeria Made Easy,” is well attended by Nigerians in the diaspora to learn about credible steps to buying homes and properties for investment income in Nigeria
The organizers said: ‘’We the key stakeholders of the housing and property market in Nigeria are aware that there are so many sad stories of Nigerians in the United Kingdom and the rest of Europe trying to buy property back home that they can return to for vacations or for rental income and of having been swindled out of their hard-earned remittances, by either unscrupulous agents or worse still, family members and friends.
‘’This Conference/Exhibition will mark the beginning of the end of such stories because this conference is sponsorship by credible stakeholders of the Nigerian housing market funded through a combination of public and private sector funding as well as international development finance institutions like the World Bank.”
Participants at today’s event were welcomed by Dr Chii Akporji, former Executive Ditector of NMRC.
The opening remarks was delivered by Adeniyi Akinlusi, President MBAN and MD/CEO TrustBond Mortgage Bank.
