The high level of infrastructural decay in the country has been attributed to the lack of budgetary provision for the maintenance of the existing infrastructure, a facility management expert has said.
The Programme Director, International Facility Management Association (IFMA), Abuja Chapter, Mr. Collins Osayamwen, disclosed this on Wednesday in Abuja at the 2015 World Facility Management day, with the theme: ‘Building Resilience for The Future’.
According to him, the only kind of maintenance Nigeria understands was breakdown maintenance, which he said was due to lack of proper planning and budgetary provision.
Osayamwen argue that, ” I tend to a little bit disagree that Nigerians lack a maintenance culture. The reasons we are unable to maintain our infrastructure, not even from government alone but even private, is because from the word go, we get it all wrong.”
