Bldr. Kunle Awobodu, the President of the Nigeria Institute of Building (NIOB) has commended the great efforts of housing sector institutions like the Federal Mortgage Bank of Nigeria for what they are doing with the NHF and other reforms in the mortgage sector to provide housing for workers.
He also mentioned the importance of other institutions like Family Homes Funds and the Real Estate Developers Association of Nigeria (REDAN) in the country’s built sector. He said they are critical stakeholders in reducing the country’s housing deficit.
Awobodu stated this while speaking exclusively to Africa Housing News on Thursday in Abuja during a courtesy visit to the leading housing sector media organisation, Fesadeb Media Group. At the meeting where he was received by the company’s CEO, Festus Adebayo, Awobodu said that building construction is a team work and that there is no way anyone can excel without working with others.
‘’That’s is why institutions like FMBN, Family Homes Funds, REDAN and others are very important to us in terms of collaboration. The Nigeria institute of building is open for collaboration with all institutions.
‘’We will provide the expertise that can help them manage their construction so that there will be value for money expended on those building because durability is a great factor that should be in consideration at the early stage of building construction. So the Nigeria institute of building is very open for collaboration with all professionals and institutions in the built environment. We have to work together to create an enviable building environment,’’ he said.
According to Awobodu, the new leadership of the Nigeria institute of building which he leads will sustain the culture of inculcating standards and conscientious practice in the institute’s corporate members.
