In pursuance of its primary goal of bringing the real estate business to the fore, a leading national real estate TV programme, National Real Estate Today, is set to launch on NTA International.

“You will recall that our first episode hit the air on NTA2 Channel 5 just two months ago and within eight weeks, it expanded to TVC News, under the platform of NIESV Half Hour and also Silverbird Television.

It will enable all Nigerians living all over the world to get first hand information on real estate investments and purchasing guides in Nigeria from a celebrated real estate professional whose experience spans 30years of stainless exposure in the practice of real estate consulting in Nigeria and overseas.
“To be specific, National Real Estate Today will hit the airwaves on Thursday, August 6, at exactly 1.30pm West African Time Zone.
“It is pertinent to note that the promoter of the show, Dr Meckson Innocent Okoro, was an erudite and celebrated National Publicity Secretary of the Nigerian Institution of Estate Surveyors and Valuers (NIESV). He later became Publicity Secretary and image maker of the Association of Professional Bodies of Nigerian ( APBN) — two national positions he held with utmost passion and dexterity. Okoro is a success by every definition of and he is indeed a real estate guru and a professional per excellence. Dr M. I. Okoro has been destined to climb to global prominence through a well programmed and structured development in his chosen career which is Estate Management and Consulting.
