UDS investigates collapsed storey building incident

A storey building under construction at the city campus of the University for Development Studies (UDS) in Tamale collapsed last Saturday (6 May) during a rainstorm

The University of Development Studies (UDS) has constituted a committee to investigate the cause of the collapse of a six-storey building under construction on the university’s campus in Tamale.

The committee, which is yet to be inaugurated has a month to submit its report.

A storey building under construction at the city campus of the University for Development Studies (UDS) in Tamale collapsed last Saturday (6 May) during a rainstorm.

There was no casualty, university officials said. The incident happened at night, at a time there were no workers on site.

Cheap materials?

Appearing on the Asaase Breakfast Show on Tuesday (9 May), the director of public affairs at UDS, Abdul Hayi Moomen, said it was too early to attribute the collapse to the use of cheap materials.

“As we speak, a committee is about to be inaugurated, that committee will be made up of key players in the building and construction industry,” he said.

“They will work independently,” he added. “They will be given a month, to come out with their report. It is only after a thorough assessment of the situation by NADMO comes out that we will be able to establish the cause of the collapse.”
