How surveyors can help in tackling insecurity — Council

By Grace Alegba

Mr. Clement Nwabichie, newly appointed Chairman of the Nigerian Board of Surveyors (SURCON), says diversifying survey practices will help tackle the insecurity, economic and social problems facing the nation.

Nwabichie said this on Wednesday at the annual professional development workshop and lunch hosted by the Association of Private Surveyors of Nigeria (APPSN), a subgroup of the Nigerian Institution of Surveyors (NIS).

He listed various countries, including Israel, using investigative mapping to fight and win wars and stressed the need for Nigeria to adopt the counterinsurgency method.

He called for a national mapping policy and the implementation of previous laudable initiatives by investigative associations and their regulatory bodies.

Nwabichie, pending his inauguration, said the diversification of investigative practices should go beyond the cadastre to capture crime, land reforms, business geography, signage, among others.

He said several laudable initiatives in the past had been scrapped, adding that survey mapping could be used to plan and reduce crime while improving the economy.

“We need to make conscious efforts to diversify our range of services in order to keep surveyors busy, liquid and happy.

“Can’t all those high resolution cameras get us moving in Sambisa Forest?” He asked.

Speaking on the theme “Panacea for Leadership and Good Governance: Perspectives, Challenges, Solutions and Opportunities for Land Surveyors”, the guest speaker listed the qualities of a good leader.

“We need to restructure our mindset towards our profession. We need more engagement and less partying, ”he said.

He stressed the need for APPSN and other professional surveyors to set goals to achieve set objectives.

He also called for a new, say, five-year strategic road plan that includes an annual review of the profession’s status, status and intent.

He called for collaboration between surveyors, universities and industries to boost the country’s economy.

Mr. Ganiu Aderanijo, President of the Lagos Chapter of APPSN, presented the achievements of the administration, including the welfare of members and the growth of investigative practices in the country.

He said the workshop aimed to raise the bar of the profession to ensure compliance with standards, the elimination of quackery and respect for the ethical values ​​of the profession.

In addition, the President of the Association of Professional Bodies of Nigeria, Mr. Oyegbola Akinloye, while declaring the workshop open, urged the investigators to implement the lessons of the workshops.

A certified nurse, Ms Folakemi Adekoya, in her lecture on “Living and surviving stress in Lagos”, said that the state is an overwhelming city to live in.

She presented statistics on stress at work and proposed solutions to manage various types of stress, including those related to the workplace.

The Nigerian News Agency reports that health checks have been carried out for members as part of the program.
