Babajide Sanwo-Olu, the Governor of Lagos State has scolded real estate practitioners for not building according to the property laws thereby paving the way for the menace of building collapse in the region.

He gave the criticism during a real estate summit jointly organised by the Lagos Business School and the Nigerian Institution of Estate Surveyors and Valuers, recently.

The Secretary to the State Government, Abimbola Salu-Hundeyin, who represented Sanwo-Olu said Lagos is forging ahead to find lasting solutions to the state’s housing concerns.

The Governor said there would be more than 30 million people living in Lagos by 2035, adding that this would present a challenge of providing affordable housing for the teeming population, given the limited land mass of the state.

Sanwo-Olu said, “It is pertinent to state that the increasing building collapses and demolitions recorded showed that the practitioners are not building in compliance with regulations, especially about building approvals, environmental standards, energy efficiency, and quality of material.

“Therefore, the need for us as a government to continuously advocate, monitor and enforce where necessary, the extant regulations and standards become necessary with the application of innovation and quality control strategies and technologies.”
