TVC Interviewed Femi Osibona, Owner Of 21-Storey Ikoyi Building (Throwback Video by lalasticlala(m): 7:52am On Nov 05, 2021
The Managing Director/CEO of Fourscore Homes, Olufemi Osibona spoke on the challenges and prospects of the real estate sector in Nigeria amidst issues of surging rents, housing deficits, and over-regulation in a throwback video with TVC.

.... I applied for a 2-storey extension in UK, the council wanted to write 2 storey, they made a mistake. So when we started developing it some people, neighbors went to report. You know when you have a 2 storey in London, you can't do a 3 storey, 2 storey must go all the way. So they went to report me to the council, the council came, they agreed that they made a mistake, that I should not do the 3-storey, I went ahead and did the 3-storey. Then we went for a committee at the committee I won. That's how we did the 3 storey...."

Talking about not listening to experts, he said:

"When I first came to Nigeria, I believed in consultants so much. If an architect tells me something, I will do whatever he tells me to do.... I later realized that some people they only Know book, they do not understand the practical aspect of the work...."

The death of all those people is indeed a sad one. I don't wanna say much at this moment in blame games sad

My sympathy to the families of those who lost their lives in the Ikoyi building collapse and to many others who died or suffer needlessly through no fault of their own.

The government should tell us who owns the building and let's start there. Setting up of panels makes no difference

shocked

This mad man was bragging about gaming the system. See where it has led to now.

His death and that of other innocent workers trying to earn an honest living.

May Nigeria not happen to us.

Sad. If at the end no one gets prosecuted for this mess then know that the government knows something that they don't want to reveal.
High rise buildings under construction have been collapsing in some parts of the world and the death toll is not as high as this.
Something is wrong with the rescue efforts.

Exactly. This is what we need to know first. There is no way the Owner will be Unknown as media puts it.
