As a nation, we have progressed in several facets of development since our independence. While we should acknowledge the milestones we have achieved thus far, we are yet to accomplish all of our goals.
Over the past decades, Nigeria has faced many developmental challenges, including issues with sub-par capacity and poor policy implementation. As organizations and individuals, we can do more to empower the nation.Initiatives should be implemented to encourage stakeholders and the government to strive for development across all levels.
The reputation of our country is our most treasured asset and the foundation on which we have built ourselves. The only way to protect and continue to improve our reputation is to meet our commitments, innovate in our businesses, deliver excellence – and then repeat.As we celebrate Nigeria’s 59th year of independence and the 2nd anniversary of Bilaad, we will continue to participate in activities that foster growth and capacity building through collaborations and partnerships. We believe it is the right path for us as an organization, and also for our nation as a whole. Congratulations to us at Bilaad and a Happy Independence celebration Nigeria!

VIRTUES OF DEVELOPMENT WITH EMPHASIS ON OUR PERSPECTIVE
Virtues are habits of mind and behavior and thus, valued as a foundation of principle and good moral being. They are an important aspect of human & organizational existence and aid in self-awareness and productivity. The ancient philosopher Aristotle suggested, a person can improve his or her character by practicing self-discipline, while a good character can be corrupted by repeated self-indulgence.
Just as the ability to run a marathon develops through training and practice, so does our capacity to be fair, to be courageous, or to be compassionate. This ideology transcends to every facet of operations for organizations.
For the past one year, we have committed to creating a road map to sustainable living through our monthly publications.
As we embark on our 12th publication, we will continue to provide thought provoking topics focused on contemporary issues, while highlighting several other areas of interest centered around sustainability. The topics have been aligned with the United Nations Sustainability Development Goals (UN-SDG) agenda in promoting sustainability and furthermore, what we reckon as virtues of development for organization and the nation. Some of these topics include;
• The road map to sustainable living
• Sustainable construction
• Sustainable investment
• Energy eﬃciency
• Communal living
• Improving property value
• Sustainable real estate
• Quest for strength
• Life with disruptive technology
• Collaboration: sustainability & the future.
At Bilaad, our passion has always been guided through our ability to adapt. By bringing a balanced integration of client expectation, technology, and lifestyle, we seek to positively inﬂuence our client’s quality of life.

We recognize the importance of the project initiatives entrusted on us by our clients and take special care to meet and exceed their expectations. In order to achieve this, we have integrated several short and long-term initiatives and practices into our culture to cultivate growth and resilience.
We will continue to invest in our people and retain them as our most valuable asset while striving to improve our culture and work environment. Through activities and initiatives, we hope to attract the best talents in the market as new opportunities arise in the organization.
