ABSTRACT

The incidences of buildings collapse have become very
frequent in recent times, particularly within the country.
These incidences of collapsed buildings have continued
“embraces’ professionals and stakeholders alike in the
construction industry, even as all efforts are being made to
stem the side of occurrences and mishaps. We read on the
pages of newspapers or hear from our radios or television
sets, news of buildings collapsing and killing or maiming of
occupants or workmen on what may now be regarded as a
recurrent feature of our national life. It is indeed a very sad
aspect of our socio-economic life that we should allow those
who do not possess the skills at appropriate levels to design
and supervise the erection of buildings and other structures.
In view of the ever-rising prices of goods and services in
the country, I think it is about time that those whose duties,
it is to act, come out with suitable building codes and bylaws
that will guarantee the lives and properties of innocent
citizens, who may still perish due to such avoidable
mistakes, that have been responsible for the untimely death
of occupants of building structures in the recent past. This
study is also addressing the need for the local government authorities
to play their roles in the construction industry to
stem the spate of building collapse in Nigeria.
