Architects Allege Breach in National Assembly's Building Contract

The National Assembly building project, which under normal circumstances, is set for delivery around November this year, already generating some controversies, as Nigerian architects are already alleging some sorts of breach in its handling.

FOLLOWING allegation of non-compliance with due process, Nigerian architects have indicated their readiness to call for the probe of the on-going National Assembly world-class permanent site for legislative studies, located in the heart of the Federal Capital Territory, Abuja.

The architects are querying the non-involvement of local architects in the construction of the edifice, which they say is against the law governing tendering process within the construction industry in Nigeria.

According to a source, which prefers anonymity, the bodies of Nigerian architects – Architects Registration Council of Nigeria (ARCON) and the Nigerian Institute of Architects (NIA), may have begun compiling areas of irregularity in the handling of the project.
