Experts urge sanctions against professionals indicted for building collapse
Mon, 27 Aug 2018

Professionals in the built environment have advised authorities to sanction those found culpable in building collapse.The experts spoke to The Guardian on the heels of a recent incident in Jabi area of the Federal Capital Territory (FCT), where two people were found died while no fewer than 18 persons including women and children were trapped under a four-storey building.

It was reported that despite the abandonment of the structure for about 15 years, additional two floors were imposed on the building.In his reaction, President of the Nigerian Institute of Building (NIOB), Kenneth Nduka, lamented that the collapse is a show of prevailing disregard for professionalism, stressing that the developer and others involved on the project need to answer question and if found culpable, should be properly sanctioned.

“We all must stand against the prevailing structured blight on professionals and professionalism. The prevailing compromise by professionals and developers must stop. This avoidable but deliberate assault on our national resources must stop; our people must be protected from avoidable careless death. The developers of the facility need be brought to book”.
