In 1954, the first Nigerian Estate Surveyor and Valuer, John Wood Ekpeyong, graduated from the
  University of London with B.Sc degree in Estate Management. Since then, the profession has
  witnessed  phenomenal and tremendous growth.

  The profession gained limelight in the country when, in 1969, a group of qualified Chartered (General   Practice) Surveyors formed what is known as the Nigeria Institution of Estate Surveyors and  Valuers  (NIESV),
as a non-profit voluntary professional organization to cater for the interests of the   Landed  profession
  in Nigeria,Six years later, it was accorded Government recognition by the   promulgation of the Estate
  Surveyors  and Valuers (Registration, ETC) Decree No. 24 of 1975, now
 CAP III   (Laws of the federal Republic of
  Nigeria) 1990.
  By this legislation, Estate Surveyors and Valuers   Registration Board of Nigeria  (ESVARBON)
  came into being as the Regulatory Body for the profession.
