Niger state Governor Abubakar Sani Bello, has pledged to employ the services of Quantity Surveyors in the infrastructural development of the state.

Governor Abubakar Sani Bello, stated these when he played host to the National President of the Nigerian Institute of Quantity Surveyors in Minna, the state capital.
The governor said the contribution of the Institute to nation- building cannot be over emphasized, insisting that his government will henceforth insist on affixing the stamp seal of a quantity surveyor on every construction in the state as that will help trace any error in the project.
He added that capacity building is key hence he will support the Institute in getting her members trained and retrained.
The governor said that he was motivated towards supporting the Institute having learnt that the state chapter of the Institute is the fifth largest growing chapter in the country.
The National President of the Institute, and former Minister of Power and Steel, Alhaji Murtala Aliyu, had earlier intimated the governor that their visit was to appreciate the him for his numerous support to the Institute at both state and National levels.
Alhaji Aliyu requested for the involvement of quantity surveyors in road and other construction projects in the state for mutual benefits to the government and the Institute.
