“I started the business two decades ago. It was a humble beginning. Few years down the line, I ventured into real estate with Ultimus Construction. Having travelled far and wide, I noticed a huge gap which needed to be filled, which explains why The Classroom was set up”, Odii said.
While explaining the rationale behind the name, he explained that it is a deliberate attempt to spark curiosity and drive conversations. The name Classroom is a combination of “Class” in a “showroom” he added.
Anchored by Big Brother Naija host, Ebuka Obi-Uchendu, the event also featured interactive sessions. Guests were also treated to rib-cracking jokes from ace comedians Acapella and Funny Bone.
