Embattled CEO of Lekki Gardens, Mr. Richard Nyong has apparently learnt his lesson. He was in the eye of the storm back in March when one of his buildings collapsed killing about 34 people. He was arrested and detained for a few days before been released.
One of the lessons he must have learnt, was the need to recruit experienced consultants instead of the ‘shabby consultants’ most of his critics have accused him of using.
The CEO claims he now has the right team
“In the last six months, we have taken time to review and strengthen our technical structure; today, Lekki Gardens now boasts a solid technical team with qualified and experience professionals to deliver a world-class housing experience to our clients. “Also, Lekki Gardens now works with the best-in-class among building and construction consultants and contractors in Nigeria.” He assured stakeholders that their investment was safe and appreciating in value in spite of the current economic downtown, adding that despite the temporary setback, the company remained economically viable and liquid without any form of indebtedness. “The accounts of the company have recently been audited and certified satisfactory by Ernst &Young, a global auditing firm,”
Will this significantly affect the cost of his developments?
