The Ogun state government will distribute 5000 Certificates of Occupancy (C of O) to beneficiaries on Friday, December 1 2023.
According to a statement released on Tuesday by the Director General’s office of the Bureau of Lands and Survey, Governor Dapo Abiodun will give the certificates to the recipients, increasing the value of their properties because they can be used as collateral. Additionally, homeowners and landowners can maximise value by taking advantage of the state’s close proximity to Lagos.
The beneficiaries are drawn from the Ogun State Land Administration and Revenue Management System (OLARMS) and the immediate pass administration’s Home Owners Charter (HOC).
At the event which will be held at the Arcade Ground, Governor’s Office, Oke Mosan, Abeokuta, the beneficiaries would be mandated to present valid means of identification.
Prior to the distribution starting, the Bureau of Lands & Survey will also accredit them.
“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, urging interest application to take advantage of the opportunity,” the statement read.
