The Collapsed 21-Storey Building Was Sealed By Lagos State Government In 2020 by fergie001: 7:04pm On Nov 01, 2021
The 21-storey building that collapsed today at Musikiu Junction by Gerard Road, Ikoyi, Lagos, was sealed by the State government last year to "prevent calamity".

Unfortunately, it appears the building was later unsealed and construction continued until it collapsed today, November 1, at about 2:25 pm.

In July 2020, it was reported that Sanwo-Olu had sealed the Gerard, Ikoyi high-rise.

At the time, a source was quoted as saying that the State Government took the action to seal the building in order to ensure that what happened with Lekki Gardens Estate when its on-going six-storey building collapsed on March 8, 2016 would not be witnessed again in the state.

The source said: "It is unheard of that the owners of the Ikoyi project in question would embark on such a capital intensive project without obtaining required approvals for a project as massive as that.

"Gone are the days of negligence on the part of the Government when people flout the law. Sealing up the project is law taking its due course.

"The owners of this project have shown themselves to be defiant and obstinate, in that the State Ministry of Land and Physical Planning had been calling on them (to) without paying attention to what the Ministry had been calling their attention to.

"It does not benefit the state to stop economically viable projects like the project on Gerrard Road in Ikoyi, but the responsibility falls on the government that all rules and regulations guiding such buildings are strictly adhered to.

"What the government has done is to halt further construction with a view to assessing and evaluating the extent to which the builders had adhered to the building code. The state will take it up from there.

"The government will not fold its arm and watch people behave recklessly without order and accountability. We are talking about people’s lives here. The state will no longer tolerate such attitude from anybody no matter how highly placed they may be."

They should have demolished that time because with time the developers will settle authorities concerned and continue with the project.

Later unsealed & constructions continued because the authority was made an offer & got compromised. No strict adherence to moral ethical codes by atleast 99% of Nigerian public office holders.

IN OUR LEADERS PERCEPTION, WE ARE ALL FOR SALE!

Imagine! August I drove to see an old acquittance close to the airport in Lagos and saw people cursing government over a recently demolished house.

I learnt the house was in a terrible shape with government issuing the owner a demolish notice seven years ago, imagine what would have happened if government didn't come to pull it down.

Definitely money changed hands to allow work to continue. It means Lagos State were not serious the whole time with their LASBCA enforcement agency. All is to make it look as if they meant business on sealing buildings.
Lagos State government are complicit in this. They can't sue the owner because it's like taking themselves for firing squad
