I’ll give Cs-of-O to all qualified applicants – Amosun



The Ogun State Governor, Ibikunle Amosun, has assured all qualified applicants under its Home Owner Charter programme that they will receive their land title documents before the end of his administration.

Amosun made this known during the 21st batch of distribution of Certificate of Occupancy and other land title documents to successful applicants at Obas Conference Hall, Oke Mosan, Abeokuta.

 “No applicant was edged out except for the reasons that they were not qualified. For instance, those who built on government lands meant for housing, agric and industrial purposes were not qualified for the scheme, as well as those who  build on oil pipelines,” he said.

 Amosun, who was represented by the Commissioner for Urban and Physical Planning, Mrs. Ronke Sokefun, said the government would not renege on its promise to ratify the homeownership of applicants notwithstanding its huge financial implications.

 He assured the applicants that government would sustain the distribution of Cs-of-O bi-monthly.

The governor  enjoined those applicants who had yet to receive their Cs-of-O not to lose hope in the scheme, but keep faith with government and be confident that it would fast-track the processes for timely distribution.

 In his remarks, the Director General and Special Adviser, Bureau of Lands and Survey, Mr. Biyi Ismail, said the state government had been consistent in giving out Cs-of-O to successful applicants for several months, nothing that the scheme was bound to fulfil its purpose.

Two of the applicants, Mr. Paul Egbedu and Mr. Kola Yaya Sule, in  separate interviews, commended government for the new initiative to distribute the documents twice a month, saying the present administration had done well in authenticating their homeownership.
