SAD: Lagos Building Collapse: CDA urges govt firm action against distressed buildings

Mr Adisa Fatai, General Secretary, Olosun Community Development Association (CDA) in Lagos Island, has called on Lagos State Government to take firm action to reduce incidences of building collapse in the area.

Fatai made the appeal in an interview with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) at the scene of the collapse building in Lagos Island on Wednesday.

He said that the CDA had been monitoring and reporting distressed buildings in Lagos Island but no action was taken by officials of the state.

“More than four years now, we have been reporting any faulty building found in the area to the Ministry of Housing, Alausa, we also alert Department of Town Planning and Lagos State Building Control Agency (LABSCA).
