Osun State Governor Gboyega Oyetola has ordered the Ministry of Works to carry out integrity test on houses suspected to be weak in all parts of the state in order to prevent building collapse.
The Chief Press Secretary to the Governor, Adeniyi Adesina, yesterday said the governor gave the directive at the weekend given the recent incidents of collapsed buildings in Lagos and Ibadan.
He said the directive on integrity test would be carried out immediately because the state did not want any building to collapse.
He said all the relevant agencies and facilities in the state would be mobilized to carry out the assignment.
Adesina stated: “Members of the public are enjoined to report to the authorities any observation they have on any building that is believed to be weak so that immediate action will be taken.
“The governor has also directed the Ministry of the Environment to ensure that drains are cleared, to prevent flooding.”
