He particularly expressed worry at the continued incidence of collapsed buildings across the country; and called on relevant agencies and organizations to double their efforts towards seeking a final solution to the menace.

The former Anambra governor prayed God to grant the souls of the dead eternal repose; urging public authorities at all tiers of government to take the issue of mass housing seriously to avoid Nigerian citizens taking up accommodation in uncompleted buildings.
