Former President Olusegun Obasanjo has urged residents of Ogun State to adhere strictly to planning permit approvals and stage-to-stage certifications of the regulatory bodies of government, stressing that the citizenry should complement the present government’s effort in achieving its mission towards ensuring safety of the people and curtailing incidences of building collapse.
Penpushing reports that Obasanjo made the call while receiving a building authorisation document for his commercial building project, Olumo Court from the Ogun State Building Production Management Authority in Ibara Housing Estate, Abeokuta.
The former President noted that most incidences of building collapse could be avoided if the provisions of the law and specifications in the permits are followed, affirming that to ensure that the job done at his project site conforms with government’s regulations, the contractors on site were made to comply strictly to specifications in the permits obtained
