According to the statement, the government “is determined to ensure that we monitor developments across the State and certify that all buildings meet the minimum standards set by the Ministry. This is in line with the Masterplans being developed for the State and to prevent incidences of building collapse.

“The exercise will be extended to major towns in the State which include Uromi, Irrua, Ubiaja, Auchi and Igarra. This will ensure that they are properly captured within the State’s Masterplans.

“The exercise will enable us to ascertain the level of compliance of developers in the area offices to building regulations. We want to know how many of the developers have applied for building plans, and in addition, do an on-the-spot needs assessment of what other requirements may be needed to deliver on the requirements for town planning work in the area offices.”
