Al-Makura plans to sign 1,000 C-of-Os in 2017

Nasarawa State Gov­ernor, Umaru Tanko Al-Makura, yesterday signed 300 Certificates of Occu­pancy (C-of-Os) thereby setting the pace for what to expect in 2017 under the states land administration platform- Nasarawa Geo­graphic Information Ser­vice (NAGIS).
Signing the coveted doc­uments in Lafia, Al-Maku­ra reiterated his resolve to give NAGIS the needed im­petus to continue to break new frontiers in land ad­ministration in the country.
He said his administra­tion is committed to deliv­ering over 1,000 certificates in 2017 which will raise the bar for service delivery in digital land administration.
Al-Makura called on residents of the state to ac­quire titles for their lands to secure it and enjoy other corresponding benefits like access to mortgage facili­ties.
“This administration will continue to promote the collective prosperity of its citizens. We have put a robust land administration system in place to ensure our people in rural and ur­ban areas harness their land potentials to add value to their lives.”
Speaking on the land­mark achievement, the state Commissioner of Lands and Town Planning, Mr Sonny Agassi, said this brings to a total of 1,357 C-of-Os signed by the gov­ernor since assumption of office five years ago.
Crediting the success of digital land administration to the dogged commitment of Gov Al-Makura, Agassi said NAGIS has set its sight on generating and collect­ing over N1 billion as inter­nally generated revenue.
He said the governor has within five years eclipsed the efforts of all previous administrations in the state since its creation in 1996.
