Have mercy Lord

Please please please

Let the political class be visited for the sins and incompetence of the country not the innocet kids.

No one will fight Dangote if he produces substandard cement or the rod makers, or use of few cement with lots of sand or use of unqualified builders or or or....incompetence kills eventually when we think we're cutting corners.

WHY MOST COLLAPSES TAKE PLACE:-
1. Lack of Experienced Professionals:- Most buildings they construct in Nigerian Cities especially Lagos and Abuja don't have Experienced Professionals in it. I went to rescue an Estate Project of 30 Mansions that was built without a COREN Structural Engineer. It was only a Corp member Civil Engr that I met on ground. So I had to redesign and reconstruct a good number of column points to make it stand. The Buildings were already at Decking level!!! One of the Mansions is sold for hundreds of millions yet a professional couldn't be engaged till there was problems.
2. Excess management of money to buy inferior materials:- Some clients deliberately tell workers to use low quality materials. While others want good quality materials but they want to buy by themselves. And when they go to the markets, the sellers will know they are JJCS and sell them inferiors at higher prices. The Site workers would accept and then use without complaining. After being in this field for a long time, I would simply reject such materials because many people will die in the next 5 to 15 years from that day.
3. PRIDE- Many clients are proud. They feel they know construction more than the Professionals when that is not their line. The read some few things from Google and they feel that they know more than someone that spent 15years in the field.
4. Other Professionals taking the role of Structural Engineers. A Surveyor or Architect or Geologist or Mechanical Engineer or Electrical Engineer etc CANNOT take a place of Structural Engineer. The Structural Elements are the Skeleton & Muscle of the Building. If the Bones have problems no matter how much Makeup you do or how nice your dressing it won't solve the bone problem. You need an expert in that field to solve it.
5. There are Some Bad Eggs in our profession who though experienced, they are also Experienced crooks. They are after quick profits and they don't care about your project. They charge very high prices and they know Packaging. They know that Clients like Efizy and they give them swags. How do you know such people? They try to confuse you with excess technical terminologies. Some tell you the weight of the equipment they will bring to your site, you give them the work, they give you below what is required.
REST IN PEACE TO ALL WHO DIED IN THIS COLLAPSE

All old buildings in Island need to go through architectural testing again and whichever is found vulnerable to collapse must be taken over by the govt to forestall repeat of such avoidable and gory scene.
