In her acceptance speech as the Chairman-elect, Ujam thanked her colleagues for finding her worthy to lead the society, saying that she would not disappoint them.

She said that NSE Enugu Branch has already achieved a landmark by electing her, being the first female chairman over 60 years of the branch’s existence.

Speaking on the issue of building collapse in various parts of the state, Ujam said though many factors causes building collapse, she however, vowed that there would be no room for quacks in engineering in the state under her leadership.

“There are many causes of building collapse in our society. The major one is the activity of the quacks, those who answer “engineers” when they are not but are undertaking construction of buildings which is meant to be job of engineers.

“The Engineering Regulation and Monitoring (ERM), a regulatory body within the NSE which sees to disciplining and sanctioning of such impostors will be better armed to perform their duty under my tenure.

“I will equally build a synergy  between the NSE and other bodies in the building and construction industry,” he promised.

Mrs Ujam said that her tenure shall have the mentoring of young engineers, especially the female ones as a cardinal objective with a view to making them self reliant considering the scarcity of jobs in Nigeria.
