A communique issued by the state wing of the Nigeria Institution of Surveyors, NIS, is urging the Cross River State government to update its orthophoto map . The communiqué made available to newsmen after the regional meeting of Eastern Surveyors Forum, ESF held at Pyramid hotel Calabar, further notes that government should partner with the NIS and other relevant institution to actualise this dream. “
Surveyors are synonymous with land, water and air space; government should work with the institution closely to help generate funds from cadastral, engineering jobs, hydrographic, mapping, agriculture, forestry etcetera. Likewise they should engage other professional institutions that are willing to help professionally”, the communique said.
Signed by Gertrude Njar and Emmanuel Obarafo the chapter chairperson and secretary respectively, it went on to say that “Land disputes can be easily curbed if surveyors are engaged for proper delineation and Survey”.
Again, the Cross River State government is enjoined to upgrade its surveying tools to meet international standards. The institution also submits in the statement that the eastern states should broaden the discipline of surveying as an academic discipline. “As the bedrock of all meaningful development, the Eastern States government should encourage the study of surveying in its tertiary institutions as a field of study because of its vast and pertinent nature”, it read in part.
