Five rescued at Ojuelegba building collapse lagos building collapse 620x3301698330465

The Lagos State Emergency Management Agency during overnight operation on Thursday, rescued five victims in another collapse building in Ojuelegba area of Surulere.
The Chief Executive Officer, LASEMA, Dr Oluwafemi Oke-Osanyintolu, who confirmed this to newsmen on Friday in Lagos said the victims were rescued after the building was pulled down to the ground zero about 11 p.m.
Oke-Osanyintolu said the accident occurred at 9.15 p.m., adding that the rescue was in collaboration with the Lagos State Building Control Agency.
The most important thing is that, we rescued five people alive while pulling down the building to save lives and property to the residents.
“When we got to the building, we discovered that the building was highly unstable, LASBCA had marked the building on March 25, 2015 and May 21 while the residents and the landlord were warned to vacate their premises.
“We need to perform, urgently, the construction and re-development of that area because of safety of lives and property. We then have to use our sophisticated equipment to check whether people are under the debris. With our equipment, we pulled down the building to the ground zero,” the chief executive officer said.
Oke-Osanyintolu urged residents in the state to ensure their buildings were properly maintained, adding that emergency was everybody’s business.
He, however, announced plans by the agency to conduct test on all buildings within the area, in order to ensure safety of environment in the locality.
-Also speaking to newsmen, the General Manager, LASBCA, Abiola Kosegbe, said the agency had identified and marked the collapsed building in question in 2015 and 2019.
She said that the marking was done after conducting a text which indicated that the property was in a distress.
“Our officers visited the building and sealed it to avoid loss of life, investigation showed that some of the tenants caught off the seal notice and continued living in the premises,” she said.
Kosegbe urged the residents to avoid living in a building in distress in their own good and in the interest of the community in general.
She also advised residents and prospective landlords to ensure that they carryout Non-Destructive Testing to evaluate the quality of materials used in the building.
Another government official, Yinka Jonathan, urged the state government to compel building engineers to always go through series of test to ensure solid erection of building.
Jonathan, however, stressed that if government was not satisfied with the standard of a particular building, it should stop people from renting such structure.
The Deputy Leader, Surulere Local Government Council, Adebisi Davis, who expressed disappointment over the sad development, however, thanked God for saving lives in the incident.
News Agency of Nigerian reports that a three-storey building at Magodo Phase 1 and a two-storey building collapsed at No 7, Rufai Street, Ojuelegba about 12 days ago.

2023: INEC speaks on when registration for PVC will begin




2023: INEC speaks on when registration for PVC will begin 20200114 214905

The Independent National Electoral Commission, INEC, Resident Electoral Commissioner (REC) in Oyo State, Mr Mutiu Agboke, has said the continuous voters’ registration would soon commence.

Agboke made the disclosure at a stakeholder meeting on Tuesday in Iseyin.

He said the exercise would capture new registrants and those that have issues with their PVCs such as replacement of lost or defaced cards and transfers from former locations.

The REC said that no fewer than 700,000 PVCs were still in the custody of the commission.

He implored leaders of political parties to start sensitising their members and supporters on the need to obtain the PVC, saying the card was the only requirement for voting.

The commissioner also warned leaders of political parties to start educating their members to refrain from political violence and violation of electoral laws.

“Also, politicians who have plan to contest for political positions in 2023 should start to familiarise themselves with their constituents rather than wait till the last minute to impose themselves.

” 2023 looks as if it is far but it is not, that is the reason why INEC is making early preparation such as the stakeholders meeting we are holding now to engage all stakeholders on how to improve our electoral processes, ” he stated.

Agboke further admonished political parties to follow electoral laws and guidelines while conducting party primaries.

In his remark, Shina Peller, a member of the House of Representatives, representing Iseyin, Itesiwaju, Kajola and Iwajowa Federal Constituency, said inadequacies in the nation’s electoral system had contributed to the challenges in conducting elections in the country.

He called for electoral reform that would proffer solutions to the challenges.

Also speaking, Oba Olayiwola Amidu, the Alawaye of Ado-Awaye, in Iseyin Local Government Area, assured the commission of the support of traditional rulers in the area to sensitise the people against electoral violence.

Amidu urged the commission to sustain its awareness and sensitisation campaign on zero tolerance to electoral violence.

The News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) reports that representatives of some political parties, religious leaders, market women, artisans and security agencies in the local government attended the meeting.
