LAGOS STATE GOVERNMENT IS NOT SERIOUS WITH THE PROBLEM OF COLLAPSE BUILDING
IT’S NOT ABOUT TIMELY RESCUE; PROVIDING MEDICAL NEEDS FOR VICTIMS AND MAKE LOUD NOISE OF “WE SHALL DO THIS OR THAT”
I ASK: WHO REGULATES, SUPERVISES OR CHECK BLOCK MOULDERS???
HOW MANY ENGINEERS HAVE BEEN JAILED AND OWNERS OF SUCH BUILDINGS???
HOW MANY ALAUSA STAFFS HAVE BEEN JAILED WHO GO ROUND TO ENSURE THE STANDARDS ARE MET??
THOSE OF THE GOING ROUND TO COLLECT MONEY, HOW MANY OF THEM HAVE BEEN SACKED AND PROSECUTED???
IS THE LAGOS STATE GOVERNMENT WANTS US TO BELIEVE THEY DON’T KNOW WHY THESE BUILDINGS ARE COLLAPSING??
RRS, YOU HAVE DONE EXCELLENT JOB IN YOUR RESCUE OPERATIONS. LAGOD STATE GOVERNMENT SHOULD BE SERIOUS OR THIS TREND OF S BUILDING COLLAPSE HERE AND THERE WILL CONTINUE
