The Management of Cosgrove Investment Limited has refurbished and delivered a 188-seater Conference Hall to the Federal Capital Development Authority (FCDA) as part of its Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR).

The revamped hall was handed over to the Management of the FCDA on Tuesday alongside some newly constructed Executive Conveniences which were also voluntarily constructed by Cosgrove, Nigeria’s leading smart estates developer.

The conference hall consists of 188 seats of which 174 are for the audience while 14 are designed for guests at the high table.

Ag. Executive Secretary, FCDA, Hajiya Zaliha’u Ahmed (MNI), who presented a formal Letter of Appreciation and a Plaque of Honor to Cosgrove Investment Limited for voluntarily refurbishing the FCDA Conference Hall, thereby restoring it to usefulness, as well as for constructing two VIP Conveniences at no cost to FCDA, described the projects as “very important” and “uneasy.”

Hajiya Ahmed said: “On behalf of FCDA Management, I sincerely thank the Chairman and Management of Cosgrove Investment Limited for the kind gesture to undertake this uneasy project,” assuring that the FCDA will put the newly refurbished hall to judicious use while ensuring that the improvements will be sustained.

She commended the immediate past Executive Secretary of the Authority, Engr U. G. Jibrin for keeping a good relationship with Cosgrove of which FCDA is now a corporate beneficiary.

The Director, Public Buildings, FCDA, Arc Adebowale Ademo who noted that Cosgrove was not a client at the FCDA, yet voluntarily embarked on the selfless project recalled the circumstances that inspired Cosgrove to voluntarily embark on the project, saying: “I was at a meeting with the former Executive Secretary of the FCDA, and I was discussing the challenges associated with the conference hall, and we were surprised when the Chairman of Cosgrove, Mr Umar Abdullahi offered to refurbish the hall as a gesture of Corporate Social Responsibility,” adding that the benevolence, which was although surprising came with joy and relief.

Arc. Ademo commended the Ag Executive Secretary of the FCDA and the Cosgrove Team for being so magnanimous to refurbish FCDA Conference Hall at no cost to the organization, adding that the need to revamp the conference hall is an issue that has been on the front-burner of the FCDA for a while.

The Chairman, Cosgrove Investment Limited, Mr Umar Abdullahi thanked the FCDA Management for appreciating a project voluntarily embarked upon by the company in exercise of its CSR policy – a major policy thrust of the organization.

He said “as a team, Cosgrove is happy to successfully complete the refurbishment of the 188-seater FCDA Conference Hall, while providing Executive Conveniences for High Table guests.”

Discussing the motivation for the organization’s various CSR projects, Mr Abdullahi noted that “Cosgrove is indigenous to Nigeria and we are committed to promoting our national pride including sustaining and maintaining national infrastructures such as the FCDA, where possible.”

He said it is part of statesmanship and love of country to support the sustenance of public infrastructure in the interest of public comfort and welfare.
