As part of efforts at checking and guarding against building collapse, the Oyo State government has directed both private and public estate developers to obtain certificate of completion for their properties before put them up for occupation.
The government explained that the move was part of proactive measures to forestall building collapse which is now rampant in the state and other states in Nigeria, pointing out that obtaining the certificate will be the last stage of approval to be given to developers in the state.


“The certificate will confirm compliance of the structure with requirements stipulated in the building plan,” said Waheed Gbadamosi, director-general, Bureau of Physical Planning and Development Control (BP-PDC), who gave the directive in Ibadan, the state capital, recently.

Gbadamosi stated that the state’s planning laws required developers to obtain certificate of compliance for every stage of their construction which would show whether they complied or deviated from the approval given to them.

“It is imperative for the people of the state to comply with the necessary planning laws and building instructions so as to avert any danger. This will also ascertain the quality assurance of the construction”, he said, stressing that, at least, a copy of the Approved Plan with all approval stamps must always be on the site during construction.

He informed that contravention or demolition notice would be served on such properties without approval on sites, warning that failure of developers to obtain the certificate of completion before occupying the building would lead to monetary fine by the BPPDC.
