The Ogun State Governor, Senator Ibikunle Amosun says the certificate of occupancy and building plan approval being issued to successful applicants under the Homeowners’ Charter programme are authentic.
Governor Amosun disclosed this during the 23rd edition of the presentation of land title documents to another batch of beneficiaries at the Oba’s Complex, Oke-Mosan, Abeokuta.
Amosun represented by the Special Adviser on Urban and Physical Planning, TPL. Steven Adewolu said that the process was well thought out, noting that the land title documents were legal tender for homeownership as the scheme has come to stay in Ogun State.’
‘’The HomeOwners’ Charter is real contrary to the rumour making rounds that the C of O collected under the scheme are not authentic. There was a little delay initially because majority of applicants did not make payment on time for the processing of their documents. They are now rushing to pay and we too have fast tracked the issuance of C of O and building plan approval.’’ He said.
In his remarks, the Special Adviser and Director General, Bureau of Lands and Survey, Mr. Biyi Ismail appreciated the beneficiaries for supporting the present administration, promising that the government would continue the bi-monthly distribution of C of O to successful beneficiaries.
Ismail urged applicants who were yet to pay to quickly do so, so that they could be part of other successful beneficiaries for the next batches.
Speaking on behalf of the beneficiaries, Mrs. Elizabeth Odusayo from Mowe in Obafemi Owode Local Government Area of the State thanked the State Governor for making their dream, concerning C of O a reality in the State.
