In response to the request for proposals, LASBCA general manager Mr. Gbolahan Oki stated that the state was planning to hire consultants to help with certified accreditor duties such as examining construction plans, conducting inspections, and keeping tabs on compliance.

He clarified that the program’s goals include making better use of private sector knowledge to increase efficiency and guarantee that all state-owned structures are safe.

The “Certified Accreditors Programme” (CAP) is an example of a public-private partnership that seeks to capitalise on the unique knowledge and experience of those working in the private sector.

“Its secondary objective was to achieve the operational mandate of LASBCA, which is to ensure that all buildings in Lagos State, both new and old, are built to withstand human habitation and to prevent the occurrence of building collapses.”

To achieve sustainable urban growth, the state government has set targets, which the program aims to meet, according to Oki.
