Ogun Govt Inaugurates Committee On Draft Building Construction Code

Ogun State Government has inaugurated a 14-member Committee on Building Construction Code 2022 to collate contributions of stakeholders in the built industry in   the draft bill before it is forwarded to the State House of Assembly for consideration.

The State Commissioner for Physical Planning and Urban Development, Town Panner  Olatunji Odunlami
made this known while presenting draft copies of the Code to representatives of stakeholders in the Ministry’s Conference Room in Oke-Mosan, Abeokuta.

Odunlami noted that the Building and Construction Code 2022 was derived from the National Building Code 2005, which stipulates that its provisions be made part and parcel of each State’s existing and future laws dealing with building design, construction and maintenance.

“Like the National Building Code, Ogun State Building and Construction Code 2022 will stop ugly trends in the built industry and open new vistas therein; eliminate to the barest minimum the incidences of ‘collapsed building syndrome’ in Nigeria, and promote safety and qualitative housing for every Nigerian”, the Commissioner stated.

He therefore called on the newly constituted committee members to study the document presented to them and make inputs from their areas of core competencies to achieve an inclusive, robust and acceptable code for the State to complement the existing legislature.
