Stop en­gag­ing quacks in con­struc­tion, es­tate sur­vey­ors warn

The Punch - - HOMES & PROPERTY -

tHE Nige­rian In­sti­tu­tion of Es­tate Sur­vey­ors and Val­uers, Abuja Branch has asked Nige­ri­ans to avoid quacks when deal­ing with con­struc­tion is­sues.

the Chair­man of the branch, Mr Charles Ebiai, de­scribed quacks as des­per­ate and out to un­der­mine the ethics of the pro­fes­sion.

Ac­cord­ing to him, those who en­gage the ser­vices of es­tate sur­vey­ors and val­uers should give the nec­es­sary recog­ni­tion to their con­tri­bu­tions in the de­vel­op­ment of the real es­tate in­dus­try.

Ebiai, who said this in a New Year good­will mes­sage to mem­bers of the branch, also called on prac­ti­tion­ers to com­mit to pro­fes­sional stan­dards by en­sur­ing that they car­ried out their prac­tice in line with the ethics of the pro­fes­sion.

He urged them to work to­wards en­sur­ing that the prac­tice would con­trib­ute more to the bet­ter­ment of so­ci­ety and ad­vance­ment of hu­man­ity through ac­cu­rate val­u­a­tion and timely de­liv­ery of projects.

He said, “As com­mit­ted es­tate val­uers, we must at all times seek to up­hold the ethics of our no­ble prac­tice in all that we do. We must shun all forms of vi­o­la­tions of stan­dards. the NIESV is com­mit­ted to see­ing that mem­bers are well trained and equipped with mod­ern skills through rel­e­vant train­ings.

“I urge our mem­bers to take ad­van­tage of these train­ings to the ben­e­fit of their in­di­vid­ual prac­tice and our col­lec­tive ser­vice to our

coun­try, while I also call on all Nige­ri­ans to pa­tro­n­ise reg­is­tered es­tate sur­vey­ors and val­uers so that san­ity will be main­tained.”

Ac­cord­ing to him, in or­der to im­prove the

qual­ity of manpower re­quire­ments, the NIESV, Abuja branch, will part­ner with the Univer­sity of Abuja and other higher in­sti­tu­tions of learn­ing to pro­vide pro­fes­sional

train­ings to cur­rent and fu­ture prac­ti­tion­ers as a way to en­sure that the in­sti­tu­tion is al­ways ready with needed manpower and able to meet the de­mands of so­ci­ety.
