The Nigerian Institute of Architects, Ikorodu Branch (NIALSCIKD) was created by Lagos State Chapter on May 10, 2019, during one of its annual programmes tagged, Lagos Architects Forum, (LAF 10.0).
It was borne out of the desire to reach out to Architects who live and work in the localities within Lagos State not so close to the regular and constitutional place of meetings.
Before the creation of the Branch, Architects in Ikorodu town and its environs have been demanding a Branch status as enshrined in it’s constitution; Article 9, Section 1-3 (Branches of a State Chapter).
“Branches may be formed in the State where there exist in a locality a minimum of ten (10) Architects, such Branches shall be part and parcel of the State Chapter”.
Having fulfilled the requirement, Ikorodu Branch applied to the National body through the State Chapter for the status, and the application was approved.
It is the first of its kind in the history of the Institute in the country as Membership of the branch (of all categories of membership) is about 60 today.
The pioneer Executives of the Branch are Chairman, Arc. Victor Uchenna Achime, Vice Chairman, Arc. Gbolahan Kukoyi, Secretary, Arc. Abiola Onibon-oje, Treasurer, Arc. A.O Bolarinde, Financial Secretary, Arc. Olusola Amusan, P.R.O, Arc. Oladele Onafowokan, Liaison officer, Arc. Tayo Oladipupo.
