In an effort to maintain standards in the profession, the Nigerian Institute of Quantity Surveyors (NIQS) has called on Nigerians to patronize genius professionals not quacks in order to avoid building collapse as witnessed in some areas in the country.
The President of NIQS (QS) Mohammed Abba Tor gave the advie during an interview with newsmen at a 2-day workshop on contract documentation and standardization of bills of quantities using the BESMM 4R and E-logbook training by the Kaduna State chapter.
The President stressed that, “collapsing of buildings is as a result of engaging quacks, not engaging the right personnel to work for them and also as a result of looking for cheap labour”.
The President also in his address, admonished members to acquaint themselves with some of the institute’s latest documents that were launched during their Annual General Meeting in Minna.
QS Tor said that the digitalization is primarily to bring them up to speed with global best practice and to make the processes friendlier and easier for both supervisors.
Represented by the Vice President, Kene Nzekwe FNIQS, the President also commended the Governor of Kaduna State, Malam Nasir Ahmad el-rufai for his diligence and hardworks in the Kaduna State.
