The move, according to the Chairman, Abuja Branch, NIESV, Mr. Emmanuel Alao, became imperative as all efforts to address the issue have not been unsuccessful.
Alao spoke recently in Abuja during the inauguration of the new executive of the branch by the President of the institute, Mr. James Omeru.
He said the NIESV would do all within the law to ensure that the issue of quackery was addressed in a holistic manner.
For instance, he said, apart from the bill, the institute would also put in place an estate agent association that would be an umbrella body for all estate agents across the country.
This, he added, would help to regulate their activities as well as ensure professionalism.
Alao said: “The issue of quackery is becoming alarming. It is giving us a bad name. We have formed an estate agents’ association, which shall bring on board all estate agency practitioners across the country to be fully registered so that it will give them the opportunity to later become members of our institution.
“For sure, this will help us to reduce to its barest minimum the cases of quackery. The institution is already working on a bill on this, we have gone very far on this. I can assure you that as soon as we are through with it, we shall send it to the National Assembly, we believe the National Assembly will not hesitate to ensure that it is passed into law.”
He noted that part of his agenda for the branch would be to begin a campaign to ensure that the profession was accorded its rightful place in the scheme of things in the country.
According to the chairman, the branch will pursue developmental and education programmes to reposition the institute.
Omeru, who also spoke at the event, said the Federal Capital Territory was key to the institute’s activities and image, hence, it would be given a special attention.
