Presenting the report, the chairman of the panel, Professor Danladi Matawal, recommended massive recruitment of engineers and architects into the department of development control, as well as the use of qualified FCDA field officers to forestall incidences of building collapse.

Matawal, who is alsothe director-general of the Nigerian Building and Road Research Institute (NBRRI),recommended that there should be an investigation of a design and development racketeering group in FCTA, to detect quackery and forging of signatures.

He continued: “We are recommending a biometric report of designers so that nobody is going to deny anything that he didn’t do well. Building inspection site meetings chaired by site officers should be instituted and well qualified engineers or architects should be used as site officers.
