Adedamola Falade-Fatila, the Chairman of the Ibadan branch of the Nigerian Society of Engineers (NSE) has hinged the rising cases of building collapse on quackery and compromise in standards.

Falade-Fatila, who spoke with the News Agency of (NAN) in Ibadan on Saturday, was reacting to the collapse of a building in Ibadan barely 72 hours after a similar incident in Lagos.

He said: “If every client, builder or developer consults a registered engineer to design their structures, we won’t find ourselves in this situation.

“This is purely the result of quackery and compromises in materials, skilled labour and so on.

“It is as they say in computer, garbage in, garbage out, what you put in is what you get.

“If you put in expertise, quality and professionalism, you will get a solid structure that will stand out and stand the test of time.

“The one that collapsed in Ibadan is still under construction and it gave way; that tells you that something is wrong some where.”

He said the association had been engaged in sensitisation programmes to encourage the use of engineers for projects.

“If you have a structure that is above two floors, get a registered structural engineer, and if it is not up to that, get a registered engineer to do your design for you.

“In doing that, the engineer will give you advice and supervise your project so that there would be no compromise by the time the structure is being put up.

“If you meet anyone who claims to be an engineer, ask for his proof; in the age we are now, it is easy to know a registered engineer.

“You can check on the internet; registered engineers have their names compiled by the Council for the Regulation of the Engineering in Nigeria (COREN).

COREN and check the person’s status by typing in his or her name; if the person is truly registered, you will find his or her name and address there.

“Anyone who claims to be an engineer and his name is not in the database of NSE and COREN is a quack,’’ he said.

The Minister of State for Labour and Employment, Festus Keyamo, has while the meeting was on tweeted that an agreement had been reached.
Keyamo said on his Twitter handle: “After some delicate negotiations (with both ministers as conciliators), the government and labour have finally reached an agreement on the consequential adjustment of other wages following the implementation of the enhanced minimum wage of N30,000. We are working on the communiqué.”
Following on this, the President of the Trade Union Congress, Quadri Olaleye, and the Secretary General, Musa-Lawal Ozigi, issued a statement confirming the agreement.
The statement read: “We commend the Head of Service of the Federation, Dr Folashade Yemi-Esan, and her team for their sincerity. Though they argued that the government could not afford to meet our earlier demand of N30,000 minimum wage across board because of the economic situation in the country, we made them understand that some people could not be more Nigerian than others. If we are tightening our belts, government should also do so.”

“Today, we face serious security challenges. Where we have security agencies, which are mandated to ensure that we are secured and protected, if nothing, we should pray for them that they are able to perform well.

“It is not only in empowering them with weapons; the power of God is beyond weapons.

“I’m sure that all people of faith will continue to pray for our security agencies to protect us,” he added

Lawan also stated that as leaders, they had the responsibility to ensure that they provided leadership, to continue to seek the intervention of God in the way and manner that we lead our people.
