…to applicants in three months.
Governor Akinwunmi Ambode of Lagos State, has signed and released 3, 200 Certificates of Occupancy, Cs of O, between September and November, 2015 to various applicants in the state.
He also approved the creation of a dedicated help-desk for applicants who have applied for Cs of O and whose applications were not concluded due to absence of essential documents.
According to Permanent Secretary, Lands Bureau, Mr. Bode Agoro, the dedicated help-desk became necessary following the avalanche of uncompleted and abandoned applications, which were associated with the non submission of vital information and other documents by applicants.
Agoro reiterated the commitment of Ambode’s administration towards prompt signing and release of Cs of O to residents, to ensure that they have titles to their landed property without any delay.
He assured that the exercise, which kicked off this week was expected to clear the backlog of uncompleted applications for Cs of O, as well as encourage applicants with outstanding applications in the bureau to take advantage of the process put in place by the state government.
