Addressing Building Collapse challenge
Speaking on the theme of the Conference “Lagos: 21st Century Real Estate Investment Hub“, the Special Adviser explained that there was need for all practitioners in the sector to come together for further engagement and networking with other stakeholders in the real estate sector on how to drive marketing strategies and investment opportunities that would reduce the housing deficit in the State.
Benson-Awoyinka further stressed that the Conference and Exhibition would help harmonise thoughts and views of stakeholders from the built sector on how the incidents of building collapse could be drastically reduced if not totally eliminated in the State.
While speaking on the recent building collapse in Ikoyi, Benson-Awoyinka, acknowledged the quick intervention of the Lagos State Governor, Mr. Babajide Sanwo-Olu and the necessary steps he took to curtail the level of casualties.
Awoyinka reiterated that, LASRERA, as an Agency in the Building Sector, would continue to play its role as a regulator in the Real Estate Market to curb the proliferation of uncertified individuals and Corporate Practitioners in order to bring incidences of building collapse to the barest minimum.
She however implored stakeholders in the sector to support and collaborate with LASRERA in its efforts to address the issues of housing deficit in the State and ultimately create homeownership model that would meet the yearnings of the residents.
