• The Management of Thinkmint Nigeria, organizers of the Real Estate Discussions and Awards (REDA), has given the Managing Director and Chief Executive, Senator Gbenga Ashafa, a Special Recognition Award for Excellent Service In The Development and Growth of Nigerian Real Estate Sector.

    Giving the award in his office, the representative of Thinkmint Nigeria, Imelda Usoro, said the award was in recognition of Senator Ashafa's contributions to the growth of Real Estate in Nigeria, starting from when he was the Permanent Secretary, Bureau of Lands, Lagos State. She went further to state that the MD'S immediate impact, under one month of his assumption of duties as the Chief Executive of the Federal Housing Authority, especially as regards the regeneration of FESTAC Town Lagos, is a pointer to the great things he is set out to accomplish.

    In his acceptance remarks, while thanking the firm of Thinkmint for considering him for such an honour, Senator Ashafa noted that he would have prefered the award to have come at the end of his tenure as the Managing Director of the Authority, a time his scorecards would have been speaking for itself. It should be recalled that the MD/CE was the Keynote Speaker in the recently held Real Estates Discussions and Awards (REDA), Digital Dialogues, which was organised by Thinkmink Nigeria, in conjunction with the Business Day Newspapers.
