  1. Most buildings in Nigeria are old and dilapidated. Even the new ones are built with substandard materials. Good no one died in the collapse building. Quick recovery to those affected.

  2. Each time I hear news like this my hope keeps dwindling for a better Nigeria.

  3. Its time we start making example of crooked engineers who cut corners, this is getting too much. Stella check the spelling of your eight
