The Federal Government is ready to partner with the Nigerian Institute of Architects (NIA), on how to strengthen the policy framework for the development of the country.
Minister of State for Education, Chukwuemeka Nwajiuba, disclosed this at the 59th annual general meeting of the Nigerian Institute of Architects (NIA) with the theme: “2030 & Nigerian Architecture: Goals, Gaps and Gains.”
He said the federal government would partner with the NIA where necessary to strengthen the framework for the successful realization of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG).
According to him, architects design building and ensure that their work and those of other professionals not only meet the clients brief but more importantly conform to architectural material specifications.
In his opening remarks, the President of NIA, Arc. Festus Adibe Njoku, said networking together will help to review the state of the nation’s 2030 SDG agenda implementation with specific emphasis on architecture.
Speaking also at the event, the former President of NIA, Arc. Sonny Echono, said that the adoption of the 2030 agenda was a landmark to a shared global vision towards sustainable development for all.
