The Chairman of the Estate Surveyors and Valuers Registration Board of Nigeria (ESVARBON), Gersh Henshaw has in Abuja, the nation’s capital, commended the Nigerian Government for giving its members an enabling environment for estate surveyors to grow and develop.
Henshaw said that the ESVARBON’s board had revised its valuation reporting template produced in 2015 to ensure a uniform and standard reporting format as well as keep pace with the dynamics of time and changes in the global marketplace. The chairman disclosed that 5,248 professionals had been accredited as registered estate surveyor and valuers.
“The board had been strengthened to further meet, amongst other things, the application of digital technology innovation in the practice, which the Minister of Works and Housing, Babatunde Fashola emphasized during our induction (inauguration of a 22-member board) ceremony. We will explore all avenues to promote professionalism,” he said.
“We have kick off our mandate as is statutorily provided in our enabling Act, hoping that the first point of attention will be ensuring infrastructural growth”, the Chairman added.
