Former Lagos State governor and current Minister of Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola, has said cases of collapsed building need to be investigated, culprits captured and punished, if we wish to put a stop to its repeated occurrence.
He said this will surely help the government to protect lives and property.
Fashola revealed this today when a delegation of the National Building Code Advisory Committee visited him in Abuja to update him on the activities of the committee.
His words, “After every unfortunate incident somebody has not been prosecuted. That is just the example that every society needs, to show that people are answerable when they do not comply with laws.
“There must be consequences for the lives lost and property destroyed, so you do it at your own peril so that a lesson would be learnt and this is how we can protect our people.
“If cases were investigated to a conclusive end and findings were made and culprits brought to book and punished to the knowledge of all the trend will end.”
“It is important to involve governors in order to domesticate the code, even at that there are more critical stakeholders which are students.
“Every level of education, from primary to tertiary, should be carried along, for the primary section by breaking the modules so that it is simplified for pupils.
“Pupils should be taught some basic knowledge of essentials of building from childhood; you must have street level conversation so that there is connection with the ordinary people.”
