Chief Dr. Charles Mba, the Chief Executive Officer of CDV Properties and Development Limited, had one goal in mind, to redefine the business of real estate in Nigeria and he is achieving it by the day.
He was not afraid of the competition nor the rigorous policies attached to it, he kept to his goal, fighting tooth and nail and it all paying off for him.
Now, he has carved a niche for himself as one of the biggest players in real estate business in Nigeria. He has become a beacon of hope for his community and others.
Like he rightly said, it was a hard journey that had corrupt individuals trying to dissuade him.
“The saint will be corrupted after being elected because when the good ones try to change the system they end up being corrupted by the system,” he stated this in a recent press briefing.
We all know what it takes to stand ones ground in the face of corruption in Nigeria. It drained him of all the energy in him, yet, he fought the battle. He stood on what was just and right.
Dr. Mba has been on the fight to restore the dignity of man like the motor of his prestigious alma mater, University of Nigeria Nsukka (UNN) before he embarked on a one year National Youth Service Corps, after which he started his career with Emzor Pharmaceutical Company where he worked for several years.
Dr. Mba even while growing up, apart from having a big dream, has always loved to be unique and outstanding in whatever he does.
As someone that has the people at heart, he knew he could never achieve his big dream with a white collar job, thus, he established himself to be able to participate and contribute to the development of his immediate community. Thus, he ventured into the real estate which was eventually how the birth of CDV Properties & Development Ltd came about.
Today, Dr. Mba is a proud and satisfied member of Real Estate Developers Association of Nigeria (REDAN). He is also a Chartered Fellow of the Chartered Institute Of Public Resources Management & Politics, Ghana (CIPRMP). He sits on the board of so many companies as Chairman/Director which include Coutics Investment Ltd, CILAN Workforce Ltd and Jasons Academy.
On improvement of buildings in the country, the expert urged the government to punish the builders responsible for any collapse buildings in the country, to help others learn their lesson.
Dr. Mba demonstrated the exact meaning of philanthropy by making a positive impact on the causes that matter to the people. Not only has he donated a substantial chunk of his wealth for the betterment of the society, he had also put in place a charge for other ultra-rich individuals to do the same in his state Enugu and beyond.
Charly Mba as he is fondly called by friends, has donated immensely through the Charly Mba Foundation, a charity organisation he established purposely to give scholarship to the indigent students from primary to university level.
