President Ali, quoted the Land Surveyors (Profession Act) of 2014 and told the group to use it as a guide.
“The ‘Act’ is your rule book. It enumerates the activities with respect to your profession. It also stipulates the qualifications and requirements for registration as land surveyors. The ‘Act’ must become your guide as you engage in the practice of land surveying.”
He (President Ali) told the 17 land surveyors that they have a chance to create history.
“Don’t let your story be told. write your own story, follow the rules and the laws. You are an important asset in safe guarding the natural resources of our country.”
The Head of State, emphasized about the dynamics of surveying and the many variations that will be needed, including marine surveying.
