Engineers Assigned the Responsibility of Initiating Campaigns to Prevent Building Failures

Engineers have been tasked with launching an intensive awareness campaign and ensuring the engagement of qualified professionals in the construction industry to prevent the occurrence of building collapses in the country.
 
The counsel came from the Olubadan of Ibadanland, Oba Lekan Balogun, also known as Alli Okunmade II, during a courtesy visit by the newly inaugurated executive committee of the Oyo State chapter of the Nigeria Society of Engineers (NSE) at his Alarere residence.
 
In a statement, Balogun expressed deep concern over the increasing incidents of building collapses in the state, emphasizing that these tragedies could have been avoided if expert advice and expertise were sought in construction projects.
 
The Olubadan emphasized that raising awareness and educating the public would help people recognize the importance of involving professionals in construction projects.

He stated, "Some individuals lack knowledge, while others, despite knowing better, attempt to cut corners. It is your responsibility to raise awareness about your indispensable role in construction activities."
 
"Through awareness and education, you can enlighten those who are uninformed and remind those who seek to cut costs that no amount of money can compensate for the loss of a life in a collapsed building," Balogun added.
 
Adewale Ikotun, Chairman of the NSE state's chapter, expressed serious concern about the recurring incidents of building collapses and pledged the organization's readiness to collaborate with the government in combating this menace. He also vowed to elevate the organization to new heights during his two-year term.
 
Accompanying him were the Vice-Chairman, Secretary-General, and Treasurer: Ifeoluwa Adedeji, Olaide Adegbayo, and Florence Iorfa, respectively. Others included Adeyinka Idris, Olusegun Adeyemi, Ijadunola Olusina, Akinsowon Okewole, and Sadiq Rasheed.
