Architects give Buhari ultimatum

In a bid to revitalise the real estate sector of the economy, and make it more viable, experts in the real sector of Nigeria has set a time-line for the present administration.

The professionals decried the attitude of previous governments towards the sector, adding that the real estate sector has lost a lot of money because they refused to implement guidelines given to them, by professionals.

The professionals also frowned at the practise of preferring foreign construction companies over their local counterparts, when it comes to awarding construction contracts.

According to the Architects Registration Council of Nigeria (ARCON) President, Mr. Umaru Aliyu, the organisation has introduced the Architect Project Registration Number (APRN).

Aliyu said it will curb the influx of charlatans in the industry, while urging the government to support the initiative- Architect Project Registration Number (APRN).

He also added that “The Council has however gone ahead, of late, to introduce the Architect Project Registration Number (APRN), which is a number assigned by the Council to each architectural project in any part of the country to ensure that only fully registered architects submit architectural drawings for developmental control/implementation and receive approval from relevant approving authorities. All submissions for development control/implementation must comply with the above,” adding that, it is urging the government to back the initiative.”

Also lending his voice to the issue, Nigerian Institute of Surveyors (NIS) President Bern Omo Akhigbe said “It is internationally recognized and agreed that the most mapped countries are the most developed. If we are to defeat the challenges we currently face in terms of urban planning and development, we need to place more emphasis on mapping and surveying and new government must as a matter of fact, look into the issue of mapping.”
