Professionals in the building industry have decried the recurring cases of collapsed building in the country.

President of Quantity Surveyor Registration Board of Nigeria ( QSRBN) Mallam Husaini Dikko, in a communiqué, disclosed that over 1000 cases of building collapse had been reported in Nigeria over the past 20 years with a good number of incidents going unreported and uninvestigated. He added that regulation, supervision, standardization and professionalism were found to be imperative in addressing the menace of building collapse in Nigeria.

He said that the growing incidents of building collapse had become worrisome to all stakeholders in the building industry, especially governments who must protect lives and properties and professionals who must promote ethics, standards and professionalism.
