The Lagos State Building Control Agency (LASBCA) has recently received a generous donation from two real estate development companies, Prindex Properties Limited and Dozek Construction Limited.
The donation consisted of two buses, an 18-seater Toyota Hiace bus and a Toyota Coaster bus, which were presented to the LASBCA at their headquarters in Ikeja, GRA.
This donation was made as part of the companies’ Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) efforts to support the enforcement drive of the agency and improve the built industry in the state.
The General Manager of LASBCA, Arc. Gbolahan Oki, was present to receive the buses and expressed his gratitude towards the donors for their contribution. He acknowledged that the donated buses will play a significant role in boosting the monitoring activities of the agency, making their efforts to regulate the built industry in Lagos State more efficient.
The LASBCA has been working tirelessly to ensure that all buildings in the state are built to the required standards and adhere to the Lagos State Building Codes. This has been a critical task as substandard buildings pose a significant risk to the safety of residents.
In recent times, the agency has intensified its efforts to regulate the built industry, and as a result, there has been a reduction in the number of substandard buildings and a decrease in the risk of building collapses.
The CEO of Dozek Construction Limited, Mr. Don Nzekwesi, spoke about his company’s decision to donate the Toyota Coaster bus as part of their CSR efforts.
He explained that his company wanted to support the LASBCA in their enforcement drive for a safer and more comfortable environment for residents. He emphasized that it is crucial for the built industry to be regulated to ensure that residents are not put at risk and that the state remains a safe place to live.
The donation of these two buses will significantly enhance the enforcement drive of the Lagos State Building Control Agency. The buses will provide the agency with the necessary tools to monitor ongoing constructions in the state and ensure that they are built to the required standards.
This will not only result in a safer and more comfortable environment for residents, but it will also contribute to the growth and development of the state.
The efforts of LASBCA and the support of companies like Prindex Properties Limited and Dozek Construction Limited are crucial in ensuring that the built industry in Lagos State is well regulated. A well-regulated built industry will result in a safer and more comfortable environment for residents and contribute to the growth and development of the state.
The donation of these two buses is a testament to the importance of collaboration between the government and private companies in achieving a common goal.
The Lagos State Building Control Agency is grateful for this generous donation, and it is expected that this will be the start of a long and productive relationship between the agency and the real estate development companies.
