Sanwo-Olu who also visited the site of the collapsed buildings at Ita-Faaji, Lagos Island to assessed the rescue operations and sympathised with the residents who lost loved ones in the tragedy commended the efforts by the emergency and rescue workers.
The governor-elect who hails from Lagos Island, arrived at Ita-Faaji at 1:05pm, lamented the loss of lives in the incident, which, he said, could have been prevented if the owner of the collapsed buildings had not flouted the state’s building codes.
The incoming governor personally engaged some residents to get first-hand information on how the three-story structure came down.
Some of the residents bared their minds on the incident with allegations that building developers in the area were fond of using sub-standard building materials on the property they manage, urging the incoming governor to carry out an audit on all buildings in area when he assumes office.
