The federal government has advised architects and other professionals in the building industry to review their charges in order to discourage people from patronizing quacks who design buildings that easily collapse.

Addressing participants in Abuja at the 24th edition of Archibuilt, a conference of architects, Director of Architectural Services of the Federal Ministry of Lands, Housing and Urban Development, Architect Sanni Gidado said the continuous patronage of quacks is increasing the number of collapsed buildings.

He therefore appealed to architects to make their services accessible and affordable.

He restated the federal government’s determination to reduce the nation’s housing deficit but appealed to the Nigeria Institute of Architects to creatively proffer new solutions that will address the nation’s housing challenges.
