CORBON was reacting to the recent collapse of a three-storey building at Jabi in Abuja.

Chairman of the council, Prof. Kabir Bala, said the council was reaching out to relevant stakeholders in the building environment for synergy in enforcing laws to regulate products and processes which are inputs for the production of buildings.

Bala, in a statement, said the council immediately after the incident “had meaningful discussions with the Standards Organisation of Nigeria (SON). The two bodies are working on a strategy that will engage all stakeholders in the sector to imbibe the culture of standards in all aspects and ramifications of construction projects.”

“CORBON shall continually build capacity of builders and work to checkmate the activities of quacks on building sites,” he assured.
