The recovery efforts were being carried out by emergency responders of the Federal and state government agencies, and Julius Berger, HITEC, Craneburg, among others.

Speaking to newsmen after inspecting the level of recovery operation, the governor stated;

“Unfortunately, what we have seen in the last 48 hours is that we do not have the manifest of everybody that was on site, which is against the law.

“On a daily basis you are meant to have a manifest of every body that is working on a construction site.

“Unfortunately it has also been difficult for us to identify anyone, or anyone to come forward as the project manager, or a staff of the developer or contractor.

“So we have also been working without having full information as to the modus operandi of the company.
“That is why we do not know what numbers we aredealing with, what the mix is and what work they were doing there.

“So it is still complicated.”
