President Muhammadu Buhari says the dark days of impunity in Nigeria are gone for good.
The President assured Nigerians that his administration will remain focused and committed to creating an inclusive and diversified economy.
Buhari, according to a statement by his Special Adviser on Media and Publicity, Femi Adesina, said this while receiving the leadership of the Nigerian Institute of Quantity Surveyors, NIQS, led by Obafemi Onashile.
The President used the occasion to highlight the administration’s achievements in stimulating the economy in the past three years, noting that growing the nation’s economy means ‘‘national growth must impact the silent majority.’’
On the incessant building collapse across the country, Buhari warned that those responsible for such incidents of professional negligence will feel the full wrath of the law.
The President Also welcomed recommendations and suggestions from the institute on how to enhance the construction industry, directing that they make a formal submission to the Minister of Power, Works and Housing as soon as possible.
In his presentation, the President of NIQS, Onashile appealed to the Federal Government to create a Directorate of Quantity Surveying and Projects Costs Management to address the issue of unclear delineation of professional functions amongst construction professions within the government.
