Ogun to Distribute 5,000 Certificates of Occupancy Friday

James Sowole in Abeokuta

The Ogun state government  will  on Friday, December 1, distribute 5,000 Certificates of Occupancy (C of Os) to beneficiaries, according to a statement  by the state’s office of the Director General, Bureau of Lands and Survey.

The statement added  that  Governor Dapo Abiodun would  present the certificates to beneficiaries, thus enhancing the value of their properties, as they can be used as collaterals, while house and landowners can also take advantage of the state’s proximity to Lagos to maximise 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).

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 and 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, urging interested applicants  to take advantage of the opportunity,” the statement read.
