OGSG Assures Investors of Availability of Land, Distributes 5,000 CofOs



Ogun state government on Friday said it will continue to make land available to genuine investors who are ready to do business in the state.


The state governor, Prince Dapo Abiodun, stated this at the distribution of Certificates of Occupancy to 5,000 beneficiaries at the Oba’s Complex, Oke-Mosan Abeokuta.


Governor Abiodun represented by the Secretary to the State Government (SSG), Mr. Tokunbo Talabi, said in keeping with the plans of the present administration to make the state the investors hub not only in Nigeria, but the West African sub-region, the process of acquiring land in the state has been automated to speed up the process.


He noted that it is no longer business as usual, as the Lands Department has been transformed to perform optimally, saying the distribution of 5000 CofO was a signpost that transparency is now the order of the day in the administration of land in the state.


The governor, 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 higher performance.


He sympathized 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.
