Your fellow Southerner is in a position to give you employment.
You go to him for employment.

You speak good English and write an excellent application letter to impress him.

He tells you to bring your qualifications.

You bring your First Degree (First Class or second class).

He tells you to go and do your Masters and even PhD for you to get the job.

ON THE OTHER HAND

A Northerner is in a position to give employment.

An Hausa Man goes to him.

He speaks Hausa to him.

He tells him to bring his qualifications.

He brings a third class degree or an SSCE with two Credits.

He gets the job and saves money to further his education.

He gets a Masters Degree while doing the job.

Tomorrow, he is appointed as Executive Director.

Ten years Later, he becomes Chairman or DG of the Agency.

The Southerner sees this and hates on the Hausa Man.

He accuses him of nepotism.

But that's not nepotism.

That's communalism.

Southerners must understand the difference between nepotism and communalism.

Helping your Brother to succeed is not nepotism.

Southerners just need to learn how to love one another like Northerners do.

Stop hiding opportunities from your people.

Northerners do not hide opportunities from their people.

Splendid!
You grew up in the north, I presume. That is how it is rolling.
Narrow down to religion and you won't be far from it, either.

Deductions from the news:

1. The building has been under construction for more than 10 years

2. The developer has started demolition of the house although it wasn't done properly.

My suspicion: Anambra is prone to erosion which could explain why the building sank in the first place. Should I throw in high cost of building materials to the mix?

The ministry in charge of Building inspection is such a useless one that have subjected themselves to daily bread hunt instead or genuinely inspecting sites. Go round a see very poor building plans and structure because they have been settled. Lagos is the worst hub. How can a building that is not completed yet be crashing? How long before it killed the residents ? Building Material quality control in Nigeria is another hazard


Lagos is not the worst but is more focused because it is a City,as there are many others happenings unreported
in Nigeria.This is a village,where buildings are erected without due supervisions by quack Contractors.
I would only agree with you,if you implored the Lagos State govt and others elsewhere to upgrade their duty so that we have
less occurrences.

I think we should look at the root cause which is standard organisation of Nigeria SON

They are so useless !! Just look at the low quality of building blocks sold everywhere then you will understand why buildings are collapsing

It's sad

alot of those times the clients are to be blamed. Yes, they think they can cut costs by cutting corners. Check the building very well there may be no engineer supervising it, they think because they have built a bongalow before they have all the experience. The mix ratio will be clearly written 1:2:4 they will tell you that 1:8:16 can still do the job because it has worked before in their previous projects. How many should i say, i ve seen alot of clients behavior to know how they like to assume they know it all. Go to our property section here on nairaland, its filled with too many ITKs that i ve stopped visiting there. Their engineers give them advice and they run to property section and start asking and seeking for any means to cut costs against what their engineers prescribed without even thinking of the repercussions.

This is outrageous in this country, where artisans will not allow professionals to do their job with appreciate building codes.
Artisans are out to criticize the professional engineers and also reduce the price inorder to be more favoured.

God no go ever shame his children. Sometimes i do wonder why some engineers could be so heartless to use substandard material and build a house even when good morning was given to them, they will prefer to use that person's money for their personal use and use little part of the money to build substandard home for someone. Such criulty isn't good
lol lies. maybe yu meant to call the builder. no engineer will risk his life and career by saving a few naira, its not worth it.

Some clients thinks they are so smart, thereby dictating the quality and quantity of materials an engineer should use, imagine when a client will force an engineer to use 2.5mm iron against 5mm.

someone used to tell me something about construction

He said as an engineer, if you call him to construct he will give you his budget and plan,but if you ask him to reduce the money and manage, especially when it comes to cement and sand,he will step down from the job..why
because the day whatever he builds collapses it won't be the person that asked you to manage, na u wey build am dem go hold..build not for money but for your reputation to be upheld and recommended to others

If the ministry in charge would do their job, by demolishing any structure with sub-standard materials then everybody will adhere to sticking to the right one. SON can also go into confiscating bad building materials which do not pass their test of quality

maybe hes a builder. know the difference bw a builder, an engineer and an architect. a builder is mostly seen on site, no engineer stays on site much but they are in charge and approves anything that is done. so if the client has been convinced by those builder called 'baba' that no need for a structural engineer then this is what they get. engineers are not very good in convincing clients, u tell them know they face something else.
