NIOB: Izam To Take Over As 21st National President



The Vice Chancellor of the Plateau State University, Bokkos, Professor Yohana Daniel Izam, is set to take over as the 21st President of the Nigerian Institute of Building, NIOB.

This followed his election at the 51st AGM and Conference of the Institute which held recently at D’Podium International Event Center, Ikeja, Lagos.

In his acceptance speech following a peaceful election, Prof Izam pledged to run a Council of Resource Integration, Innovation and Impact, noting that the building sector in the country urgently requires increased synergy among built environment professionals to achieve sustainable housing delivery.

The three day conference of the Institute which was declared open by Governor Sanwo Olu of Lagos State, witnessed a keynote address by Femi Falana SAN; both challenged Nigerian Builders to take advantage of their professional regulatory frameworks to defeat quackery in the building industry.
