Lagos: The Chairman of the Association of Private Practicing Surveyors of Nigeria (APPSN), Adeleke Adesina, feels that surveyors have been underutilised in Nigeria.
Stressing on the fact that surveying plays an important role in physical planning, environmental management and economic development of any nation, he said, “We are only engaged in cadastral survey. If this is the only thing we do, I think we should not have spent five years in the university before we graduate. We have other serious areas here we work.”
Speaking at the 2014 Professional Development Seminar of the association, he ascribed the issue to lack of awareness about comprehensiveness of the role of surveyors in national and economic development among policy and decision.
