"We're Building Low-Budget Houses for Salary Earners" ...Metro and Castles CEO, Adekunle Abdul


Mr Adekunle Abdul, the CEO of Metro and Castles Homes, is a well experienced building engineer with international exposure. Abdul is happily married to Marita Ayodele, daughter of popular natural health specialist, Mrs Quincy Ayodele.

It was a memorable day in the life of this couple last Sunday when they officially unveiled the Phase 1 of Metro & Castles Homes Estate at Sangotedo, Lekki, Lagos State. 

The houses in the Phase 1 Estate has been fully purchased by subscribers at a price of N36 million which is relatively cheap compared to other houses in that axis. They are built into duplexes with three major rooms and one extra room for visitors. 

While speaking during the unveiling, Abdul who encourages that having a shelter is not a necessity not luxury, added that once one has a good job and is credit worthy, such person should have a home him or herself. This, he posits, is the reason why Metro & Castles is all out to build affordable houses for people in a serene environment complemented with social amenities like gym, swimming pool, playground for children etc. 

The suave businessman revealed that SunTrust and Keystone Bank are major partners of Metro & Castles on the project and the company also markets by itself.

Another good thing about the project, Abdul added, is that subscribers can pay within the space of 36 months (three years) with an initial 40% deposit while he says that the company plans to extend the payment offer to five years in the future. 

“This is a lifetime offer. All the materials used are locally sourced with a touch of class and each duplex is fully equipped. Furthermore, the Phase 2 of the scheme is commencing immediately based on popular demand, Abdul noted, while advising “anyone that is credit worthy, be it a salary earner, to partake in this scheme, either by coming to us directly or go through our partners”.
