Delta partners firm for issuance of land titles
Towards enhancing and ensuring transparent land administration system, the Delta State Government has launched an Information Communication and Technology (ICT) centre.
The centre is a partnership deal between the government and Queensbridge Investment Limited to frastrack the issuance of Certificate of Occupancy to land owners and boost the Internally Generated Revenue (IGR) base of the state.
Commissioning the ICT Centre, the State’s Deputy Governor, Kingsley Otuaro, called on all Deltans to acquire their C of O at the present affordable rate, asserted that the centre would provide an inclusive database by completely digitalising the manual Certificate of Occupancy and all land documentation.
Otuaro said the centre, which will be operated by Queensbridge Capital Investment Limited to service the Ministry of Lands and Survey, is expected to be transparent and ease the cumbersome process of securing C of O.
According to him, this will make check the fraudulent advances/practice of land grabbers, estate agents, surveyors and generate revenue to the state. “ Also, Managing Director, Queensbridge Capital Investment Limited, Mr. Chuks Iku, asserted said that all former documents made in the Ministry of Lands and Surveys will be digitalized in 60 days.
