Gov.Abiodun Issues C of O To 5,000 Property Owners, Assures Investors Of Availability Of Land In Ogun

Ogun State Government has assured genuine investors who are ready to do business in the State of availability of land with ease for establishment of factories 

Governor Dapo Abiodun gave the assurance while issuing  Certificates of Occupancy (CofO) to 5,000 property owners at the Obas’ Complex, Oke-Mosan in  Abeokuta, the State capital.

Governor Abiodun, represented by the Secretary to the State Government, Mr. Tokunbo Talabi, stated that making land available with ease was part of the plans of the present administration to make the State an investors hub not only in Nigeria, but the West African sub-region

The process of acquiring land in the State according to him,  has been automated to speed up the process which will be available within 30 days of receiving such applications for land 

"It is no longer business as usual, as the Lands Department has been transformed to perform optimally, adding that,’’ the distribution of 5,000 CofO is a signpost that transparency is now the order of the day in the administration of land in the State’’, he stated 

Governor Abiodun, who attributed the non-performance of the Lands Department in the past to 'cabals' said the office is now operating on a clean slate as the former staff have been moved to make room for high performance.

He sympathised with those who went through severe ordeal in accessing their land documents, saying with the documents, it would bring peace of mind and signifies that the land has been allocated to them.

Also speaking , the State Commissioner for Physical Planning and Urban Development, Hon. Tunji Odulami, said the distribution of Certificates of Occupancy to 5,000 people was an indication that the present administration apart from taking the bull by the horns, was a promise keeping government, urging the beneficiaries to complete the process by obtaining their building plan as well.

Similarly, the State Commissioner for Housing, Jagunmolu Jamiu Omoniyi, while congratulating the recipients, noted that the land documents given by the government would legitimise and prop up the value of their properties, calling on those yet to apply for theirs to do so without delay.

In his welcome address, the Director-General, Bureau of Lands and Survey, Arch. Segun Fowora, said land plays an important part in human activities as no activity could take place without land.

Fowora noted that the introduction of the Ogun State Land Administration and Revenue Management System (OLAMS), by the Prince Dapo Abiodun-led administration was to speed the process of land administration and make it seamless, maintaining that the Bureau of Lands would continue to implement the Governor's vision on land matters.

One of the recipients and former Lagos State Commissioner of Police, Mr. Ayilara Adedoyin, lauded the State government for the initiative, noting that it would help authenticate their properties and give them a peace of mind.
