It was a tragic day on the 25th of September in Nazareth High School, Imeko-Afon area of Ogun State when one of the school buildings collapsed, killing a pupil and injuring two in the process, Siggy reports.

The Ogun State government has on Saturday taken a step in pulling down a block of classrooms in the said school.

It was a tragic day on the 25th of September in Nazareth High School, Imeko-Afon area of Ogun State when one of the school buildings collapsed, killing a pupil and injuring two in the process, Siggy reports.

The building, which recently became distressed and partially collapsed on a group of students killing one and injuring two others in the process, was demolished over the weekend on the instruction of the Ogun State Governor, Prince Dapo Abiodun.

The governor further directed the immediate reconstruction of the demolished block of classrooms and hinted that any other public building found to be distressed would be pulled down and reconstructed.

“The state carried out the demolition of the school building in the larger public interest. The building was discovered to have become weak and could collapse and injure more students if not demolished. We’ll rather pull such weak and aged structures down than allow pupils’ lives to be endangered,” the statement noted

It also hinted that no effort will be spared to prevail on owners of weak buildings; whether premises, schools or private residences to ensure due process and best practices in consonance with the State Building Control Regulations.

“Any building, at all, posing threats to life and property within the state will be pulled down because we cannot compromise citizens’ welfare and wellbeing in the name of managing sub-standard structures and with a view to ensuring better physical planning environment for sustainable development and averting needless loss of lives and properties,” he quoted the governor as directing.

Further justifying the government decision, the statement disclosed that “all identified highly distressed structures, particularly public buildings like schools, hospitals, maternity or health centres will be tested for their structural integrity to be determined and where they fail the integrity test, such buildings will be pulled down and reconstructed”, the statement concluded.
