The Construction and Civil Engineering Senior Staff Association (CCESSA) has called on the Federal Government to urgently intervene in the influx of expatriates in the nation's construction industry.

CCESSA, in a communiqué jointly signed by its President Comrade Augustine Etafo and General Secretary Comrade Ezekhumhe Otaru George said government's intervention is necessary in order to engineer genuine growth and development in the construction industry.

The communiqué, which was issued after the union's National Executive Council (NEC) meeting in Kaduna recently, also implored the National Assembly to take all the necessary steps, and fast tract the deliberations on the local content Bill to ensure that the policy is established as a local content Act in the construction industry.

The union, in its resolutions, also "specifically looked at youth's unemployment, high level of corruption that creates a wide gap between the rich and the poor, the poor infrastructural facilities as some of the key challenges which the government must pay attention to for us to address these security challenges in the country."

On security challenges the union "notes with dismay and condemns unequivocally the security challenges in various parts of the country and its implications in the construction industry with particular reference to the recent massacre of more than 50 students of the Federal Government College, Buni Yadi;, Yobe State, and the 16 persons killed in Adamawa State by suspected Boko Haram terrorists.
