Rather than take drastic actions against the incessant building collapse either against the contractors and owners of the structures or strengthen the regulatory agencies in a bid to enforce laws guiding the building and construction industry in the nation, the government remains unmindful of the series of deaths occasioned by building collapse across the nation.
