The Nigerian Institute of Town Planners (NITP) on August 5-6, 2015 in Kaduna held the last leg of its three-phase Mandatory Continuing Professional Development Programme (MCPDP) for the year.
Just like those held previously in Port Harcourt (June 18-19) and Ibadan (July 1-2), the two-day Kaduna forum had “Development of a Multi User Template for Land Use Planning and Analysis Reporting (LUPAR) in Nigeria” as its theme.
The well-attended event featured an array of senior planners including numerous past presidents, as well as some planners who are legislators in the National Assembly.
