Governor Dapo Abiodun will present 5000 Certificates of Occupancy (C of O) to beneficiaries on Friday, the Director General, Ogun Bureau of Lands and Survey, Segun Fowora said in a statement on Tuesday.
According to him, the C of O will enhance the value of properties as their owners can use them as collaterals as well as take advantage of the state’s proximity to Lagos to maximize value.
The beneficiaries are drawn from the Ogun State Land Administration and Revenue Management System (OLARMS) and the immediate past administration’s Home Owners Charter (HOC), he said.
The event will be held at the Arcade Ground, Governor’s Office, Oke Mosan, Abeokuta.
According to the statement, beneficiaries would be mandated to present valid means of identification.
They will also be accredited by the Bureau of Lands & Survey before the commencement of the distribution.
“The present administration in the state embarked on the exercise aimed at authenticating land documents of all house owners in the state with a view to adding value to the properties and getting the owners to formalize and benefit maximally from them.
“Additional 10,000 certificates of occupancy are in the pipeline for distribution within the next one year,” the statement indicated while urging those interested to take advantage of the opportunity and apply.
