Building expert blames family's uncle

Sharing his thoughts on the matter building expert Ejiofor Chibueze Charles blamed the family's uncle for the state of the house.

In a chat with Legit.ng, the CEO of Modern Alternative Design Architects explained why:

"From the looks of things I will blame the relative (uncle) who was said to be in charge.
"He was given the work on trust and would have honoured his people by making sure no issues came up and delivering when expected.
"If there was a contractor and he wasn't doing as expected he would have been petitioned and called to order, but if it was the uncle who tried to shortchange his people his relatives should get him petitioned.

Abroad lady sending money home disappointed after seeing her house

Meanwhile, Legit.ng previously reported that an abroad-based lady was disappointed after seeing her building project.

She reportedly kept sending money after being satisfied with the reports the handler of the building project was always giving her.

However, the lady returned from abroad to discover she was misled and shortchanged.

Far from what the project handler told her, the lady lamented its state while carrying out an on-the-ground assessment of the place.

She could be overheard, in a video from her visit to the site, asking rhetorically where the aluminium she was told of was kept.
