STAGE SET AS NIGERIA’S LARGEST INDIGENOUS COMPANY ‘LARALEK’ TAKES POSITION ON SITE AT CANAANLAND
Churchng can confirm that Preparations ongoing for the Groundbreaking at the site of the new 100,000 capacity ‘The Ark’ (Legacy Project) were obvious today as a canopy was erected with many rented chairs being set at the site. Church Gist findings reveal that Olalekan Adebiyi, a construction mogul and owner of Nigeria’s largest indigenous company will be playing a major role in raising the project.
As the founder of LaraLek Ultimate Constructions, Olalekan Adebiyi is the numero uno—number one—in Nigeria’s construction community. This is all the more surprising considering the fact that Adebiyi has never received University education in Engineering or Architecture. How did he come about establishing the biggest construction company, and becoming the most successful and most sought-after construction contractor? The Nigerian Society of Engineers (NSE) gives a clue.
When NSE honoured Adebiyi with the highest honour possible for archons of engineering who did not themselves study Engineering, the body reportedly explained that Adebiyi’s ingenuity with construction had hit the mark! Thus, his LaraLek Ultimate Constructions rode the same reputation—hitting the mark at every corner and contract.
The City of Lagos has benefitted the most from the projects of the 21 year old LaraLek. Some of the most publicised projects handled by LaraLek include Church Road, Agbelekale; Giwa Street and Aboru-Abesan Link Road in Agbado Oke-Odo LCDA; 10-lane Oshodi-Murtala Muhammed International Airport Road—with three express lanes and two-service lanes in each direction; and the seven-kilometre Ayobo-Ipaja road, in Alimosho Local Government Area of Lagos State.
According to This Day, Olalekan Adebiyi oversees the operations of LaraLek while emphasising his personal guiding principles: excellence and economy.
Heavy equipment have been seen arriving Canaanland for the take off of the project immediately after the groundbreaking.
The event is scheduled to commence at 11am Thursday 25 March 2021.
