According to Babafemi Ojudu, Senior Special Assistant to the President on Political Matters, who posted pictures on his Facebook wall, the iron rods used for the pillars gave in like wood and the concrete work is as brittle as ordinary sand.

Ojudu called on the Federal Capital Territory authorities to investigate those in charge of approving and supervising this construction to determine why they were so negligent.
