Ogun Govt. to issue 4,000 C of O’s Monthly
Plans are underway by the Ogun government to increase the issuance of Certificates of Occupancy (C of O) under its Home Owners Charter programme to 4,000 monthly to meet the yearnings of applicants.
Mr Biyi Ismail, the Director General, Bureau of Lands and Survey, disclosed this while responding to questions from members of the State Assembly Committee on Lands and Housing at the assembly complex, Abeokuta.
The Director General represented by the Special Assistant to the Governor on Land matters, Mrs. Bimbo Oluyinka, explained that the process cut across inter-agency procedures involving some ministry’s.
He listed the Ministry’s as Urban and Physical Planning, Bureau of Lands and Survey, Ministry of Finance, Internal Revenue Service and the Ogun State Property & Investment Corporation (OPIC).
He enjoined any applicant who needed clarification on the Home owner programme to call the designate call centres advertised by the Bureau.
Ismail stated that the bureau had been strengthened with more personnel and equipment to ensure improved service delivery.
The Director general also assured qualified applicants of getting their Certificates of Occupancy before the end of the present administration in the State.
Earlier in his remarks, the House Committee Chairman, Hon. Adebiyi Adeleye, said it was incumbent upon the relevant agencies of government to fast track the process to make it more seamless.
Adeleye, in company with Honourables Olayiwola Ojodu, Israel Jolaoso and Julianah Akintayo, requested the Bureau to also address land allocation challenges being encountered by allottees of Isheri River View Estate within the next two weeks.
