Why won't buildings collapse in Nigeria?

1. Bricklayers calls and parade themselves as Site Engineers because they can put plumb line and knock pegs.

2. SON decided to overlook the standards of building materials due to bribery and corruption by manufacturers.

3. COREN have also left their duties for politics.

4. DANGOTE is not helping matters with the high cost of cement which makes builders overmix sand to a bag of cement instead of using the correct aggregate.

Until we tackle these issues, buildings will continue to collapse

Unless as in pictorial view, the reinforcements seen above are nothing more than wire mesh.
the sand/cement ratio was not correct sighting blockwork and concrete.
It might have been caused by faulty or non engineering standard specs.
my opinion tho!
