Governor of Ogun State, Dapo Abiodun, at the launch of an online portal, ‘Ogun State Land Administration and Revenue Management System’ (OLARMS) in Abeokuta, announced a one-month moratorium for residents and entrepreneurs, whose properties encroached on government’s acquired lands.
He also said the government has digitised its land administration process to curb challenges inherent in the system.
Abiodun set a deadline of November 30 for any building on government acquired lands to apply for ratification of their documents through its digital platform.
