Body advocates effective maintenance of public facilities, infrastructure – Guardian

Minister of Works and Housing, Fashola
The International Facility Management Association (IFMA), Nigeria Chapter, has urged effective maintenance and sustainable management of public facilities and infrastructure.
The call was made at the second edition of facility management advocacy day in Lagos yesterday.
President of IFMA (Nigeria Chapter), Mr. Segun Adebayo, said that the thought behind the advocacy day was to create a platform for critical stakeholders and operators in the built environment to have strategic conversations on matters of utmost importance to the collective interest and concerns as a professional body.
Also, Director, Federal Public Asset Management, Tina Onokwai, who represented the Minister of Works and Housing, Mr. Babatunde Fashola, said that public facilities and infrastructure development were one of the bases of assessing the achievements of governance and also an indicator of the quality of governance.
According to Fashola, sustainable cities and communities are the 11th of the 17th Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
“It identifies sustainable infrastructure and facility management as a pertinent index that instigates response to sustainability as a universal code to preserve what you have for tomorrow’s generation and how to preserve what you have for tomorrow’s generation through continuous maintenance of existing public facilities and infrastructure. 
“It is worthy to note that the management of public facilities and infrastructure enhances performance, durability and sustainability across the entire infrastructure from roads, office buildings, accommodation, industrial buildings, hospitals, among others,” he said.
He added that the Federal Government was committed to addressing the infrastructure gap in all sectors of the Nigerian economy through the development of the National Integrated Infrastructure Master Plan (NIMP), saying that the maintenance of existing public facilities and infrastructure is also key to the bridging of infrastructure gap, and there are numerous opportunities in infrastructure jobs.
