FINDING A GENUINE ENTREPRENEUR WILLING TO DIVERSIFY INTO DIFFERENT SECTOR OF THE NIGERIAN ECONOMY IS A RARE BLESSING TO THIS COUNTRY. INSTEAD OF CONTRIBUTING MEANINGFULLY TO THE ECONOMY OF OUR DEAR NATION, MANY NIGERIANS WOULD RATHER SEEK PAID EMPLOYMENTS, EARNING AND MAKING A DECENT LIVING DEVOID OF ANY FINANCIAL AND PSYCHOLOGICAL RISKS.

THE ENTREPRENEURIAL ACUMEN AND STRIDES OF MR. TAYO ADEGOKE IS SUCH THAT GIVE HOPE TO NIGERIANS AND THE NIGERIAN ECONOMY, BECAUSE, APART FROM THE POSITIVE INPUT THESE ACTIVITIES ARE ADDING TO OUR GROSS DOMESTIC PRODUCT, THEY ALSO CREATE JOBS THEREBY CUTTING DOWN THE RATE OF UNEMPLOYMENT IN THE COUNTRY…

WHEN MANY ARE STRUGGLING TO RUN A BUSINESS VENTURE, ONE CAN ONLY IMAGINE HOW TAYO ADEGOKE KEEPS SEVERAL BUSINESSES AFLOAT CUTTING ACROSS SEVERAL INDUSTRIES SUCH AS REAL ESTATE, CONSTRUCTION AND AGRICULTURE, TO MENTION A FEW.

THIS YOUNG MAN BEGAN FORAGE WOK, A COMPANY WITH SPECIAL INTERESTS IN CONSTRUCTION AND PROPERTY DEVELOPMENT AS A MERE HOSPITALITY BUSINESS.

OWING TO HIS TENACITY AND HARD WORK, FORAGE WOK IS GRADUALLY MAKING A NAME FOR ITSELF WITH DIVERSE INTERESTS IN HOSPITALITY (SHORTLET APARTMENTS), PROPERTY DEVELOPMENT; EQUIPMENT LEASING AND DREDGING AMONGST OTHERS.

THE ONDO STATE INDIGENE’S ABILITY TO BUILD THIS COMPANY INTO A MULTI-BILLION NAIRA CONGLOMERATE ATTESTS TO THE SAYING, “HARD WORK PAYS”.

REGISTERING HIS PRESENCE AND MAKING HIS IMPACT FELT IN THE AGRICULTURE SECTOR, HE FLOATED THE VALUE BRAND COMPRISING OF VALUE EGGS, VALUE CHICKEN, VALUE FEEDS AND VALUE COMPOST. VALUE EGGS IS A SIGNIFICANT HOUSEHOLD COMMODITY AND BRAND IN NIGERIA, ESPECIALLY IN ONDO STATE.

AS AN ENTREPRENEUR WITH KEY INVESTMENT INTERESTS IN REAL ESTATE AS WELL AS A DESIRE TO MEET THE HOUSING NEEDS OF EVERY NIGERIAN, IRRESPECTIVE OF THE CLASS OR SOCIAL STATUS, HE HAS A NUMBER OF COMPLETED AND ONGOING ESTATE DEVELOPMENT PROJECTS IN LAGOS AND THE FEDERAL CAPITAL TERRITORY UNDER THE AEGIS OF FORAGE WOK.

MR. ADEGOKE, A PATRIOT TO THE CORE, ALSO HAS AN ONGOING DEVELOPMENT PROJECT IN THE HEART OF THE AKURE, THE ONDO STATE CAPITAL.

OTHER PROJECTS HE HAS GOING AT THE MOMENT IS “THE CREST”, WHICH IS A 11 UNITS OF LUXURY MANSIONS BEING BUILT TO CATER FOR THE NEEDS OF CLIENTS IN THE DIASPORA AND HIGH NET WORTH INDIVIDUALS, WHO WOULD LOVE TO LIVE IN A STRATEGICALLY MANAGED ENVIRONMENT WITH 24/7 ELECTRICITY, INDIVIDUAL SWIMMING POOLS AND CCTV, WHICH CAN BE MONITORED FROM ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD.

THIS CAPITALIST’S APPROACH TO REAL ESTATE IS ALL ENCOMPASSING, BECAUSE HE HAS OFFERINGS FOR ALL CADRE OF THE SOCIETY, FROM THE RICH TO THE MIDDLE CLASS AND THE LOW CLASS. GIVEN HIS BACKGROUND IN FINANCE AND ACCOUNTING, HE HAS BEEN ABLE TO CREATE A MODEL FOR EASY FINANCING THE ACQUISITION OF PROPERTIES FROM HIS COMPANY.

ONE WOULD WONDER HOW AN INDIVIDUAL POSSESSES SUCH GREAT ENTREPRENEURIAL AND MANAGEMENT CAPACITY, BRITISH TRAINED, ADEGOKE IS A WELL READ AND GREATLY EXPERIENCED PERSONALITY WITH AN INTIMIDATING PROFILE. HE HAD HIS A-LEVELS AT THE PRESTIGIOUS DAVID GAME COLLEGE, LONDON.

HE LATER OBTAINED HIS BACHELOR’S DEGREE IN ACCOUNTING AND FINANCE AT THE UNIVERSITY OF HERTFORDSHIRE, THEN PROCEEDED TO BAG A MASTER’S DEGREE IN ACCOUNTING AND FINANCIAL MANAGEMENT FROM THE SAME UNIVERSITY. HE IS A SENIOR MEMBER OF THE CHARTERED INSTITUTE OF RISK MANAGEMENT.

NIGERIA IN GENERAL AND ONDO STATE IN PARTICULAR, NO DOUBT, NEED MORE OF TAYO ADEGOKE, TO TRANSFORM THE FORTUNE OF THIS NATION AND DRASTICALLY REDUCE THE RATE OF UNEMPLOYMENT IN THE COUNTRY.
