Lagos Building Collapse: Civil Engineer calls for adherence to process.

Written by on November 10, 2021

The Nigerian System which is fraught with impatience for proper flow of system processes will continually bite back with negative consequences.

In a chat with a Civil Engineer, Toyin Adebosin who was a guest on Invicta’s Flagship Programme Perspectives said this while giving his expert thoughts on the Ikoyi Building collapse.

He used his expertise to analyse what may have gone wrong on the building which came crashing down.

Adebosin believes the outcome of the investigation will truly provide answers with the hope of knowledge gotten from such exercise will be applied in future.

The Member of the Institute of Civil Engineers London wants more intelligent inquisitiveness on different subject matters before jumping to conclusion.   

————-Probe consultant letter to pull out of collapsed building project – Toyin Adebosin

In a swift reaction, a Civil engineer, Toyin Adebosin has asked that the Investigative panel on the collapsed building in Lagos to probe the letter written by the consultants over pulling out from the construction of the 21 storey building.

Engr Adebosin explained further that he would not be surprised if the pull out was because of downplaying expertise of services and in making products available.

He was speaking exclusively on Invicta FM, where he said that the kind of governance is the replica of what had happened to the building in Lagos.

Adebosin talked about the setbacks befalling the engineering profession and says only a reset in all spheres of the Nigerian system is needed now.

So far, the number of dead bodies recovered from the rubble of the high-rise building which collapsed last week in Ikoyi, Lagos, has reached 44 with 15 survivors.
