The Nigerian Institute of Builders (NIOB) Federal Capital Territory (FCT) has said that it is making efforts to curb rising cases of building collapse in the territory.
This was made known by the new Chairman of NIOB, Mr Peter Omale during an interview with NAN in Abuja recently.
Acccording to him, the issue of building collapse has become a source of worry for NIOB.
He said: “We are also going to pay advocacy and create awareness on building and builders; we are going to bring back pride to the building profession, this is because a lot of builders address themselves as engineers. This is wrong.
” We will explore modern technologies and e-building in enhancing professionalism in the sector.
“On building collapse, we are going to embark on massive training of builders to ensure that there is no case of building collapse in Abuja,” Omale said.
