NIOB seeks clarity on govt’s agencies’ mode of operations

In a move to encourage more investments in housing construction and eradicate perceived bottlenecks associated with development process, the Nigerian Institute of Building (NIOB), Lagos chapter, is seeking clarity on the mode of operations of the government’s regulatory authorities as it affects operators in their sector.
NIOB pointed out that the efforts of government to improve the nation’s ease of doing business could be further impaired if the functions of government’s regulatory agencies are not streamlined to facilitate investments.
To draw home concerns of stakeholders, especially developers and home builders, the institute, according to its Chairman, Mrs. Adenike Said, stated that the issue would be brought to the fore for discussion during its annual general meeting (AGM) in Lagos this week.

Themed: “Regulatory Authorities: The Panacea for Building Project Delivery in Lagos State,” Said pointed out that lack of understanding of mode of operations of government’s regulatory agencies had been given investors sleepless nights in the state.
She noted that the general public was somehow disconnected from the government on what to do before, during and after building process.
These agencies include the Lagos State Land Bureau, Lagos State Surveyors Office, Ministry of Physical Planning and Urban Development, Lagos State Building Control Agency (LASBCA), Lagos State Physical Planning Permit Authority (LASPPPA) and Lagos State Safety Commission (LSSC).

Chairman of the forum’s organizing committee, Mr. Adelaja Adekanbi, a builder, said it had become worrisome to know that the authorities concerns have not been given adequate information on their mode of operations, hence the need for education, fine-tuning and discussion on the issues.
Adekambi hinted that the Commissioner for Physical Planning and Urban Development in the state, Mr. Wasiu Anifowoshe, had been invited to shed light on mode of operations of these authorities in a bid to meet the millennium development goal of vision 2025.
