In a momentous event that sparkled with honour and inspiration, Julius Oyedemi, executive director of Sales and Marketing at PWAN Group, added yet another feather to his cap. He was crowned the Real Estate Humanitarian Personality of the Year for 2023.
The spotlight shone brightly on Ambassador Oyedemi amid a gathering of distinguished individuals and honorees, all of whom have, through their benevolence and unwavering dedication, illuminated the lives of countless Nigerians.
This recognition was bestowed upon him at the illustrious Nigeria Philanthropy Awards (NPA), a grand annual affair organised by Unabashed Media LTD, hosted at the esteemed Nigerian National Merit Award House in Maitama, Abuja.
Ambassador Emmanuel Oko, the Principal Partner of NPA, explained that the Nigeria Philanthropy Award’s noble purpose is to pay tribute to exceptional Nigerian philanthropists, champions of good governance, advocates for positive change, leaders who shape policies, and those who practice corporate social responsibility.
The award ceremony aimed to thrill, inform, and inspire through remarkable stories of achievements by individuals who have selflessly dedicated themselves to the betterment of society’s most vulnerable.
Oyedemi, MD/CEO of PWAN PLUS, the owners of Cedarwood Luxury & Heartland Estates, accepted this accolade in the presence of esteemed dignitaries, including the Executive Governor of Nassarawa State.
The night was a true testament to the extraordinary impact that a single individual can have through philanthropy and community service.
PWAN PLUS, under Ambassador Oyedemi’s visionary leadership, has transcended the conventional definition of a real estate company. It has evolved into a potent instrument for uplifting host communities, supporting the underserved and underprivileged, empowering the vulnerable, and contributing to the overall development of the nation and humanity.
For many years, Oyedemi has demonstrated his unswerving commitment to philanthropy by allocating a substantial portion of his financial resources, technical expertise, and intellectual prowess to serve the less privileged and underserved in Nigerian society. His dedication has bestowed hope where it was once scarce and touched numerous lives.
Two of the company’s Directors, Simeon Umar and Rejoice Alabi, stepped onto the stage to receive the award on Oyedemi’s behalf.
They highlighted the fact that in the eyes of Oyedemi, real estate surpasses mere profit and personal gain, but stands as a vehicle for societal change and community betterment.
“This unique approach to real estate has set a new industry standard, fusing business acumen with a profound sense of social responsibility,” they said.
As the curtains were drawn on the 2023 Nigeria Philanthropy Award, the message resounded clear and strong: Oyedemi’s humanitarian endeavours and his unique vision of real estate have set an inspiring example for others.
His commitment to using his success to uplift those in need is a testament to the profound transformative power of philanthropy.
In honouring him, the NPA hasn’t just celebrated an extraordinary individual; it has kindled a national spirit of giving and compassion. Oyedemi’s legacy will undoubtedly continue to inspire and empower communities for generations to come.
