The President of the Nigerian Institute of Quantity Surveyors, QS Mohammed Abba Tor, FNIQS led a delegation of the leadership of the Institute on a courtesy visit to the Nigerian Society of Engineers, yesterday, at their headquarters in Abuja.

The President, while delivering his address during the visit, called for synergy and collaboration between professionals in the Construction Industry particularly between Quantity Surveyors and Engineers.

While congratulating the President of the NSE, Engr. Babagana Mohammed, FNSE and the newly elected executives of the NSE on their election, , President Abba Tor, noted that there was a need to leverage on the synergy and platform created by the Construction Industry Development Initiative (CIDI) by organizing a Construction Summit. This Summit, according to him, will be jointly planned and organized by the seven professional bodies in the built environment.

“Construction professionals in the built environment in Nigeria need to jointly advocate for: Full participation of Nigerian professionals in policy formulation and implementation for development of Infrastructure in Nigeria, collaboration between the professionals in the industry for enhanced service delivery and strategic alliance between professionals for multidisciplinary practices”, he explained.

Citing inadequate government patronage of Nigerian construction professionals, dominance of foreign companies in the construction industry as well as inadequate involvement of Nigerian professionals in development infrastructure as some of the drawbacks of Nigeria’s landmark projects, President Abba Tor stated that the Institute was working on a blueprint for the summit.

Responding to the president’s remarks, the President of the NSE, Engr. Babagana Mohammed, FNSE, thanked the President for the visit, assuring the Institute of the continued support and collaboration of engineers.

The high point of the event was the presentation of gifts to the President of the NSE by the President of the NIQS on behalf of the Institute, a gesture which was also reciprocated by the NSE.
