The Executive Governor of Plateau State, His Excellency, Barr. Caleb Manasseh Mutfwang has urged The Nigerian Institute of Builders (NIOB) to assert its influence and take proactive measures to ensure that all construction projects adhere to high professional standards.
Governor Mutfwang made this known at the 53rd Builders’ Annual Conference/AGM Plateau State on Tuesday, 15th August 2023.
At the 53rd Builders’ Annual Conference/AGM Plateau State, The Executive Governor emphasized the pivotal role of professionalism in the construction industry.
“I urged the Institute to assert its influence and take proactive measures to ensure that all construction projects adhere to high professional standards, thereby reshaping the current state of affairs”.
“With a determined resolve guided by divine grace, we aim to transform the narrative on the Plateau”.
“The Institute’s significance cannot be overstated, and the moment is ripe for it to assume a dominant role in the industry. It is imperative that the institute step into a leadership position. The housing shortfall in Nigeria is a well-known concern”.
“To bridge this gap, we must engage in purposeful research to make construction more affordable. Accessible and dependable building materials are crucial for enabling citizens to achieve homeownership. Our era demands an end to government-provided worker housing, and instead, we must empower employees to own homes even before retiring”.
