    If you want to own a house in lekki without stress, what you need to do is try and purchase two or more plots of land in Ibeju lekki now for some around N1.5 to 2M on installment now that the land in that area is still reasonably cheap. Before you finish paying, the general cost of land would have increased and then you can sell one for something around N5 – N7 OR N10M.

    With the money you’ve made on the land, you’ll be able to build a house of your dream.

    Don’t say I didn’t tell you!
