APC To Regulatory Bodies, Set Standards For Buildings In Nigeria,

The All Progressives Congress ( APC ) has asked the various regulatory bodies in the building and construction industry to do everything possible to prevent building collapse by ensuring that required standard is met before approval.

In a statement made available to newsmen in Abuja and signed by the National Publicity Secretary, Mallam Lanre Issa Onilu, the party described Wednesday building collapse in Lagos as avoidable

The statement reads: “The All Progressives Congress (APC) is shocked and deeply saddened by Wednesday’s collapse of a building housing a school and residential units in Itafaaji area of Lagos State which led to several deaths and injuries, particularly among children.

“When we lose our loved ones, it is never easy, particularly when they are children lost to such horrific and avoidable building collapse.

“We sympathise with the families of the dead victims and pray for the speedy and full recovery of the injured. We also pray for the safe rescue of those still reportedly trapped in the collapsed building rubble.

“While we commiserate with the government and people of Lagos state over the sad incident, the party is worried that the frequency of these building collapse and its attendant human casualties has become abnormal. Relevant regulatory authorities across the country must do all that is necessary to prevent a reoccurrence of these avoidable building collapses.”
