He said: “In the event of building collapses, not only do we witness loss of lives, but artisans also face a loss of livelihood and credibility.

“They tend to avoid projects without proper approval. Therefore, any project with approval that lacks supervision by LASBCA officials should be steered clear of.”

“Hence, any project that had approval but was not being supervised by LASBCA officials should be avoided.

“Please rise against injustice, don’t keep quiet when things are being done wrong on site because if you keep quiet and the building collapses a lot of people may die.”
