In his opinion, Segun Akanni, The Publisher of The Drum Online Media who was at the Expo said, the Nigeria Government can key into such Expo as a way of bringing professionals from all over the world in the field of construction for the purpose of creating and suggesting new innovative ideas in the nation’s construction industry.
The recent and frequent collapse of buildings in the country has been as a result of lack of technical know-how on the part of builders – it is globally expected that before a building can be put in place, a lot of process should have been put into consideration.
Part of this should be the testing of the soil to build on; quality of materials to be used; when to use it and when not to use it. All these precautions are potential of reducing the tragedy, especially in Lagos, during the raining season.
