IFMA commends Lagos government for appointing facility managers
The Nigeria Chapter of International Facility Management Association (IFMA) has commended the State government on its plan to engage facility managers for the professional management of its estates.
The groups’s acting President, Mr. Segun Adebayo, expressed readiness to support and complement this laudable initiative through advisory and recommendation of credible and reliable facility managers with professional capability and pedigree.
“This plan in our view is long overdue considering the value–adding benefits the government and the residents of the estates will derive from its effective execution.
“It will not only promote the wellbeing of the residents but also create a sustainable model of management of the estate through professionalism and international best practice.
“The plan will also create jobs and employment for artisans and technicians in Lagos which will further translate to the preservation and enhancement of the life cycle of the assets in the estates in particular and the entire estate in general,” he said.
IFMA has been a progressive partner with Lagos State Government through quality collaboration with Lagos State Infrastructure Asset Management Agency and Government Technical Colleges in the State.
The strategic partnership and collaboration with the State agencies and technical colleges has led to several initiatives like Facility Management Advocacy, Mentorship Programme for the student of the technical schools and celebration of World Facility Management Day, an annual global celebration of the achievements of facility managers across the world.
