At the two estates, several landowners took possession of their properties.

Speaking, Obesere urged Nigerians to cultivate the culture of investing in properties as it is one of the most viable forms of investment.

According to him, the most valuable form of investment is in properties because it gives one peace of mind as you do not have to panic.

“Also, properties appreciate in value more than some other forms of investment that can depreciate.

“Even if you keep money at home, over time, you will find out that the money would have lost value,” he said.

Attesting to the credibility of Gtext Holdings, Obesere disclosed that he decided to associate with the company because they are reliable.

“l have been with the brand for 5 years after carrying out due diligence and proper research about the real estate company, and I am proud of them as their standard keeps growing.

“Also, the chairman of the company, Dr Stephen Akintayo is a complete gentleman who has an image to protect.
