The Governor of Lagos state, Babatunde Fashola today visited the site of the collapsed building inside the Synagogue Church of All Nations in Ikotun. Fashola met with the
church founder, Prophet T.B Joshua and also ordered all church workers to stop work on the site to enable officials of the Nigerian Emergency Management Authority work effectively.
On a more interesting note, the Lagos state Commissioner for Physical planning, Mr Toyin Ayinde, revealed that the 5-storey building had no government approval for its construction.
Speaking to newsmen at the site today, the state Commissioner said records in his office shows that no permit was handed to the civil engineers for the building to be erected but said he was awaiting the church engineers to present the building permit they were given to erect the collapsed building.
However you wanna look at it,heads should roll.If the building construction had planning permission,heads should roll cos they obviously made the wrong judgement.Equally if the Church did not have a construction approval,heads should roll.Those Poor Nigerian's should not die in vain.But sadly something tells me that's exactly what's gonna happen!
