Ogun Govt Vows To Flush Out Quacks In Built Industry

Ogun State Government has vowed to flush non-professionals in the built industry who are in the habit of using the title ‘Town Planning Consultants’ without having the required academic and experiential credentials.

The State Commissioner for Physical and Urban Development , Town Planner  Olatunji Odunlami stated this in Abeokuta, at a stakeholders’ meeting with national executive members of the Association of Town Planning Consultants (ATOPCON) and its Ogun State Study Group.

Odulami stated that part of the statutory duties of the Ministry was to regulate activities of professionals in the industry, adding that it would commence implementation of the recently passed Law on the accreditation of Town Planning Consultant in the State.

   "Accreditation of Town Planning consultants will provide a database of certified practitioners, thereby ensuring that those who practice in the State are people and firms that can be held accountable by the different professional bodies that regulate the industry".

In his remark, the National President, ATOPCON, TPL Ademuyiwa Adelu lauded the Ministry for the cooperation enjoyed by the Association, saying its members were capable and willing to contribute their quota to the development of the State.

On his part, the National President, Nigeria Institute of Town Planners (NITP), TPL Oluwatoyin Ayinde, called for adequate sensitisation on the importance of the profession, noting that professionals in Nigeria needed to speak up to drive the desired growth and change in the country
