Building Collapse: Lagos Goes Tough On Property Development Without Government’s Approval
Lagos State Governor has warned property developers and owners to desist from embarking on any form of physical development in the state without adherence to outlined processes and procedures.
Lagos State governor, Sanwo-Olu, explained that the guidelines set by the government through the Lagos State Physical Planning Permit Authority and Lagos State Building Control Agency, LABSCA, were to ensure that developers come up with solid structures that would stand the test of time.
The governor, who warned that defaulters would be sanctioned accordingly, added that the measures were to ensure that the communities remain well structured, organised and become sustainable for generations yet unborn.
Speaking on Tuesday during the celebration of the 2022 World Habitat Day theme: “Mind The Gap. Leave No One and Place Behind,” held in Ikeja, the governor said that as his administration provides adequate social infrastructure and enabling environment, the property owners should support the government in compliance with the law.
Sanwo-Olu, through his representative, the Secretary to the State Government, SSG, Folashade Jaji, noted that the provision of infrastructure and a suitable environment were part of his THEMES Agenda which had been critical in maintaining social equilibrium and harmony across the state.
