Speaking at the launch, Adetoke Benson Awoyinka expressed her satisfaction with Kennedy Okonkwo and his projects, saying,
“Every time people say there is a housing deficit in Lagos, I tell them we have capable joint venture developers in Lagos, and this is just an example of what the government and the private sector are doing. Dr. Kennedy is a developer in Lagos and a friend of the State government as long as he is doing things right. We are very proud of you, and I know that the governor is proud of what you are doing. Thank you very much for being among those people developing homes in Lagos and bridging the housing deficit.”

Rising from being an agent to becoming a renowned developer in the industry. Today gives us a better perspective of an opportunity to improve on what the consumers want. Today we unveiled our 2022 home design collections at the Citadel View Estate, located just behind Lagos Business School. And we are also doing the groundbreaking for a 40 hectares estate, known as the Capital Gardens Estate.” – Dr. Kennedy Okonkwo.
