Special Adviser/Director-General, Bureau of Lands and Survey, Mr Olubiyi Ismail, made this known while addressing members of Nigerian Institute of Surveyors, Ogun State Chapter, who paid him a courtesy visit in his office.
Ismail said that the state government is doing everything within its purview to accommodate private surveyors, adding that the Bureau is ready to work with them to take surveying profession to greater height.
“A round-table discussion will be organized between NIS and the Bureau to discuss issues bothering on survey and generate activities showing government and private surveyors coming together. This will foster cordial relationship, ” Ismail stated.
The Director-General assured NIS of the support of the state government as they are partners in the rebuilding mission of the Senator Ibikunle Amosun’s administration.
Responding, Chairman of NIS, Ogun State Chapter, Surveyor Tunji Adegunle congratulated the Director-General on his appointment and thanked him for creating time to meet with the institute.
He also commended the state government for its efforts in making surveying an enviable profession.
Adegunle appealed to the Director-General to look into issues that could likely cause disaffection between private surveyors and the state government.
