The event which was celebrated across the banks 20 African subsidiaries, including New York, UK, France and Dubai, culminated into a mini carnival at the corporate head office in Marina, Lagos as it witnessed  a rich culture of African people on display.

The bank said the event was aimed at encouraging Africans home and abroad to be patriotic and embrace their culture.

It was all colour and glitz as a troupe of dancers representing Nigeria, Ghana, Zambia, Côte d’Ivoire, Senegal, Zimbabwe, among other African countries, entertained the audience from the entrance of the building to its doorways through to the Tony Elumelu Amphitheatre Hall. Their overall performances exuded good vibes and earned them ovation from all.

Noting that Africa has unarguably positioned herself as the second largest continent in the world with its rich cultural heritage, the bank said the continent remains the only one in the world that was evidently bequeathed with the most colourful and distinctively diverse culture appreciated across the globe.

From her aesthetic art works, ethnic costumes, expressive dances, mind-blowing plethora of languages, amazing dishes, tourists attractions, and wildlife among others, Africa is seen as a world power that is yet to explore.

It is, therefore, to proudly and powerfully project her cultural heritage that UBA hosted the event in Lagos an to commemorate this year’s Africa Day. It said that part of its aim was for dignitaries to map out lasting solutions to persisting challenges in the continent.

Themed, “Educate an African Fit for the 21st Century: Building Resilient Education Systems for Increased Access to Inclusive, Lifelong, Quality, and Relevant Learning in Africa,” for us at UBA, it only reinforces our belief and passion for education as exemplified in our foundations National Essay Competition where winners who emerge are given scholarships through school.

According to the Group Managing Director, United Bank for Africa, Oliver Alawuba, “We are in 20 African countries and four countries outside Africa. Our focus has always been on not only driving investments into Africa but also to empower Africa’s youth by honing the critical thinking prowess of our youth as well as groom them for leadership roles across the continent.

Alawuba said UBA aspires to develop and grow in the world, adding that unity is critical and very important in Africa hence the emphasis on how to change the narrative. “Unity is critical and very important for the future of Africa, we need to remain united to achieve our aspirations and the youth are critical to that growth”, he said.

Consequently, as one of Africa’s leading financial services institutions, with a pan-African footprint spanning 20 African countries and globally in the US, UK, the United Arab Emirates and France, UBA says it’s fully committed to unifying Africa and empowering youths for the future. It also continues to lead the narrative focused on the development, growth, and unity of Africa

Dr Saheed Mosadoluwa better known as Mr Ibile will be hosting Bridging Housing Deficit Summit 2024 “BHDSummit2024”, coinciding with the grand launch of Lekki Aviation Town. This summit will bring together 7,000 Nigerians to discuss solutions to the housing deficit and affordability obstacles, showcasing Mosadoluwa’s commitment to addressing these critical issues.

Hon. Dr. Saheed Mosadoluwa, a prominent businessman and entrepreneur, is making significant strides in tackling Nigeria’s housing deficit and national airline challenges. As the chairman of Harmony Gardens and Estate Development Ltd, Mosadoluwa has established himself as a leading figure in sustainable real estate development in Lagos State.

Founded in 2019, Harmony Gardens and Estate Development Ltd has grown into a major player in the Nigerian real estate industry. With a portfolio that includes seven developing estates, such as HarmonyVille, Granville, CrestView, Oju-Alaro Estates, and Lekki Aviation Town, the company aims to provide housing for up to 750,000 Nigerians. The acquisition of 1,412 hectares of land valued at $860 million underscores the firm’s ambition and capability.

Mosadoluwa’s journey began in the aviation and logistics sectors, where he catered to Hajj operations and freight forwarding.

His aviation ventures have contributed to a diversified portfolio that spans logistics, events, hospitality, and manufacturing, with a global footprint across Europe, Asia, the Middle East, and Africa.

Mr. Ibile’s impact extends beyond real estate. His commitment to public service and sustainable development has earned him recognition as one of the most influential young entrepreneurs in West Africa. Despite facing numerous challenges, he has consistently demonstrated a strong work ethic and visionary leadership.

In addition to his business achievements, Mosadoluwa has addressed the pressing issues of Nigeria’s housing deficit and national airline challenges. He believes that overcoming these obstacles requires a willingness to let go of trade-offs and embrace innovative solutions. His vision for Lekki Aviation Town, a hub for aviation services, training, and innovation, aims to position Lagos State as a key player in the global aviation industry.
