How Sijibomi Ogundele Became Billionaire At 33

Sijibomi Ogundele is the man to watch out for as far as the revolution of Nigeria’s prime real estate is concerned.
Perhaps the nation’s youngest billionaire, Sijibomi recently featured in Forbes Africa as a brave young Entrepreneur, an astute businessman with the capacity to change the Nigerian real-estate industry, Mr. Ogundele’s vast wealth of experience as a venture capitalist and investment strategist has provided a solid background in ensuring Sujimoto achieves its mission in the establishment of classy housing units in Nigeria that can compete with its counterparts globally.
Through innovative practices and an international network Mr. Sijibomi “Sujimoto” Ogundele’s sole objective is to redefine luxury in the Nigerian real-estate industry.
While many of his mates are either still struggling with their education or even if they have graduated from school would still be searching for paid employment, 33-year-old Sijibomi Ogundele has emerged one of the biggest boys on Lagos Island, who is making things happen; and with the zeal he entered the business world, he feels he can’t just lose.

The young man who has a humble beginning is at the moment the center of discussion in Lagos circle for what he has been able to achieve in just 33 years of staying on the fourth planet.
Very articulate Sijibomi who sits atop Sujimotors and Constructions didn’t just get to where he is today; he was able to climb the ladder of success through dint of uphill-struggle, pliability and perseverance to emerge as one of the richest young men in the country. With what he is dabbling into the business world, young Sijibomi who started his life in Agege, one of the suburbs of Lagos is putting Nigeria’s name on the global map especially in the real estate and construction trade.
Sijibomi has gradually become the biggest young property owner in an exclusive Ikoyi area of Lagos with the newly completed world-class luxury apartments, Medici Terraces, located on Milverton Road, Ikoyi.
The property which he acquired not too long ago, has turned to a beauty to behold in just few months he started constructing the mansion.
With offices in Paris, Accra, Madrid, Dubai and Riyadh, he has indeed stamped his feet solidly in the Nigerian business world with nothing but perfection and class rooted in his mind.
Sujimoto Group, his parent company, has continued to blaze the trail with an international network of partners, such as Fortune 100 Company Alhaji Group, which is known to be the wealthiest non-royal family group of companies in the Middle East. Sujimoto Group has helped the Alhaji Group and its other partners to locate and analyze business opportunities in the Middle East, Europe and Africa.
Sijibomi didn’t just wish change in his journey to embrace success; he actually lived the change in order for it to become a reality. That is why at a very young age, the then young lad would leave his suburb Agege to be at the Ikoyi Polo Club; his mission then was to be like the rich and opulent so as to emulate their unique lifestyles.
Today, Sijibomi is not just a member of the residents of Ikoyi, but has emerged as a member of the Landlords Association with about seven property listed as his.
The maverick businessman had his turn around in life when he met a Japanese university professor, Dr. Sujimoto Koga who boosted his confidence to believe in himself and take on life as it comes.
Since then, Sijibomi has never allowed his background to affect his confidence.
Aside the Ikoyi buildings, he has just acquired some other property on the noveau riche Bourdilon Avenue where he hopes to build a 100-unit hotel apartment. The project will start next year and will be completed in the same year. For Sijibomi, he has seen and has conquered and he’s still on the verge of netting more accolades in the business world.

Title-crazy civil servants to go

Title-crazy civil servants are scared of being sacked, The Nation learnt at the weekend. Officials, who violated the Public Service Rule banning titles until after retirement, may be retired in the coming civil service reforms.
Only those whose titles were traditionally inherited may be spared but their postings and conduct will be put under watch.
According to sources, the government is disturbed that most of the top civil servants with honorary awards actually bought them at high fees.
The affected civil servants violated the rules which grants them the right to such honors only after retirement.
Besides committing the resources of Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAS) to such awards, most of the civil servants used the window to “grant favour to groups, persons, and communities in violation of their oath of office.”
