Ogun is pacesetter in land titles distribution, says Amosun
Ogun State governor, Senator Ibikunle Amosun has said the Homeowners’ Charter Programme has received wide acceptance, making other states to adopt similar scheme.
The governor disclosed this during presentation of 1,000 Certificates of Occupancy (Cs of O) and Building Plan Approval to another batch of beneficiaries at the Arcade Ground, Oke-Mosan, Abeokuta.
Represented by the Commissioner for Budget and Planning, Ms. Adenrele Adeshina, he said the programme, which started as a practical urban planning intervention, is currently replicated in other states, and that the state is a pacesetter in the distribution of authentic land titles.
“Homeowners’ Charter Programme, which started in 2013 is a major programme of the state and has put smiles on faces of thousands of successful applicants. It is now being replicated in other states. Indeed, Ogun State is a pacesetter,’’ he said
The governor promised that the programme would be pursued to a logical conclusion, saying all applicants that meet the requirement would collect their land title documents.
Speaking earlier, the Special Adviser and Director General, Bureau of Lands & Survey, Mr. Biyi Ismail, said the current administration has delivered on promises of Homeowners’ Charter, noting that government has set standard and has been consistent in the presentation of Cs of O to beneficiaries.
