FG Inaugurates Governing Council For Federal School Of Surveying

The Minister of Power, Works and Housing, Babatunde Raji Fashola, SAN has urged the newly inaugurated Governing Council of the Federal School of Surveying, Oyo to be mindful of the purpose for which they were nominated and ‘be problem solvers, solution finders and peace builders” in the onerous task ahead of them.

While inaugurating the Governing Council on Tuesday, March 13, 2018, Fashola explained that the Council will be responsible, as provided by the Act establishing the School, for the general management of its affairs, control of its properties and finances. He added that the purpose of the Schoo, is to “provide instructions, training and research in survey and related courses”.

The Minister explained that the objective for which the School was established, which is to produce technical, professional and other skilled manpower necessary for surveying and  mapping, requires it to function properly in carrying out its mandate. He further added that part of the Ministry’s mandate to formulate and implement the policies of the Federal Government of Nigeria is to survey and map out both internal and international boundaries and this, he said would require appropriate contributions from skilled manpower, without which the task will be difficult to achieve.

Fashola urged members of the Governing Council to always deal with the challenges of producing skilled manpower and professional surveyors. He reiterated President Buhari’s commitment to infrastructure development, citing the security challenges facing some schools as there would be need to plan how to rebuild, merge and protect such schools, especially those destroyed by the Boko Haram insurgency in the North East. He encouraged them to cultivate the spirit of team work, reflect transparency and accountability so as to properly represent the Federal Government.

In his remarks at the occasion, the Honourable Minister of State II, Surv. Suleiman Hassan Zarma stated that as an Alumus of the School, its standards has drastically dropped, thereby charging the newly inaugurated members to do their utmost zest in restoring the past glory of the School.

The Chairman of the Governing Council and Surveyor-General of the Federation, Surv. Ebisintei Awudu, in his acceptance speech, on behalf of other members, thanked Mr. President as well as the Ministers for the confidence repose in them, while promising that the Council will not disappoint the Ministry in carrying out its assignment.

The Permanent Secretary of the Ministry, Mohammed Bukar, Directors of the Ministry and family members of the newly inaugurated Governing Council were in attendance at the occasion.
