NIOB Commended Oyetola For Ensuring An Orderly Built Environment.


The Nigeria Institute Of Building, NIOB, has commended the efforts of Governor Oyetola towards ensuring an orderly built environment by putting in place necessary measures to curtail the nefarious activities of quacks.


The NIOB disclosed this at the Governor's office, Abere, through their State Chairman, Bldr Ajao Olushola on a courtesy visit to Mr Governor to mark the year 2020 Builder's Day celebration on Thursday, March 13, 2020.

Bldr Ajao stated that NIOB is a professional association of Builders and a training institution for prospective builders. He commended Mr Governor for the honour and the privilege which is accorded in granting the courtesy visit as they mark year 2020 Builder's day.

"This year's Builder's day focuses on the need to raise public awareness aimed at curbing the menace of incessant building collapse and inter/intra professional rivalry and quackery in the Built Environment, culminating often into Building collapses / failure." The Chairman said.

In his address, Governor Oyetola who was represented by his Deputy, Mr Benedict Alabi congratulated NIOB on the year 2020 Builder's day. He said his administration has taken a giant stride towards ensuring compliance with the Nigerian National Building code aimed at promoting a safe building environment for the well being of Osun residents.

The Nigerian National Building code was made in 2006. The code clearly spelt out the duties and roles of all professionals in the Building production process. This will not only check quackery, but will ensure an orderly built environment.

Governor Oyetola charged the team to continue to seek knowledge beyond the soil and embrace innovative ideas that will assist the government in making Osun the best in terms of building construction and a safe environment.
