In many ways, the Nigerian society, fraught with its many problems and challenges, ends up forging men driven to building legacies and giving back to society.
It is one of the many ways we as a people keep growing and getting better at leading good lives.
Bukola Odeleye, CEO Beedel Constructions, is certainly in the comity of men who continually strive to give back to society through creative, yet essential Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) initiatives.
Earlier in the week, as part of its corporate social responsibility, Beedel Constructions inaugurated the reconstructed and beautified Adeoyo Ring Road Roundabout in Ibadan, bringing new life to the area.
Known far beyond the shores of Nigeria for their excellent construction exploits, Beedel, based primarily in Ibadan, is keen on beautifying the Pacesetter State as the renovation of the Adeoyo Ring Road Roundabout indicates.
Speaking on the revolutionary step, Odeleye explained that this is merely a move by Beedel to contribute its quota in a unique way.
According to him, initiatives like this should be a clarion call to entrepreneurs to make better the environment, community or state in which they operate.
For Beedel, Adeoyo Ring Road area is a prime location as it is where the company’s corporate headquarters is located.
He expressed the hope that the gesture would inspire others who do business in Oyo State and Nigeria as a whole to strive to make society a better place for all to operate in through concentrated and concerted CSR efforts.
Already, residents of the area have applauded the move by Beedel Constructions, commending the state-of-the-art beautification of the roundabout.
