On Saturday in Kano, the council’s president, Ali Rabiu, revealed this to reporters.

According to him, the council determined that action was required to stop the loss of life and property as a result of building collapses, which have nearly become a regular occurrence in the nation.

“We are worried about the collapses with roads leading to the killings of more Nigerians than building’s but because buildings are the ones that people see, they often talk about it,” Rabiu said.

The COREN president said that one of their core mandates was the proper monitoring of projects to safeguard the interests of Nigerians and better the economy adding they will not relent in ensuring the strict adherence to the rules and regulations governing construction projects.

Rabiu explained that they established the Engineering Regulatory Monitoring Department in each Bureaucracy which allowed for the subsequent setting up of the Engineering Regulatory Monitoring Teams in all 36 States and Abuja.

He noted that before 2019 the Council lacked powers to punish any violator except those on their register and even at that the punishment was suspension from practice and deregistering.

“But today, the Law is being amended allowing them to sanction any Nigerian whether Engineer or not who commits infractions in Engineering practice and these punishments include imprisonment and for practitioners their Licenses could be withdrawn,” he said.
