Relevance of Estate Surveyors and Valuers in Urban Renewal in Nigeria

HEARTY CONGRATULATIONS

The Management and Staff of Godec Appraisal Services LLC would like to express our profound support to the NIGERIAN INSTITUTION OF ESTATE SURVEYORS AND VALUERS, ABIA STATE BRANCH and all the Participants in the “Mandatory Continuing Professional Development Workshop”.
As you brainstorm on “The Relevance of Estate Surveyors and Valuers in Urban Renewal in Nigeria” especially when the nation is battling with decaying cities with a dire need for Urban Renewal and Maintenance Culture,

I hope that you will rise from this seminar with a new zeal to use your
training and expertise in the landed profession to move the nation forward. New visions are overdue. Our present generation carries more responsibility than any generation alive on planet Earth before, and you the participants of this conference are at the forefront to chart a new course and expand the scope of the industry which seems to be thinning out by the day. I salute the effort of the organizing committee, members of the State Branch and the State Executive Members under the leadership of Esv. Chief Jude Arukwe.
We are proud to be associated with this branch and I wish everyone a successful discourse.

ESV. Gordin Nwako ANIVS, RSV, SLREA
