By Modupe Gbadeyanka
Oyo State Commissioner for Lands, Housing and Urban Development, Mr Isaac Omodewu, has disclosed that getting Certificate of Occupancy (C of O) in the state would no longer be a herculean task.
Mr Omodewu, speaking on Wednesday, November 9, 2016, during the Inter-Ministerial briefing recently held at the Ministry of Information Mini Theatre in Ibadan, noted that the issuance of C of O would now be processed under 60 days if proper documents were submitted by land owners.
According to him, the era of infinite processing period for C of O was now a thing of the past.
He said that the government has put the necessary measures in place to facilitate quick process and issuance of C of O if land owners submit proper documents, stressing that the government was disturbed by the endless waiting period and the patronage of agents by land owners who wanted to collect their C of O.
Mr Omodewu urged members of the public to desist from patronizing agents for any transaction whatsoever, adding that the government is running an open door policy to facilitate the smooth process and issuance of C of O for interested publics and consequently called on fuel stations in the state that have not been approved by the government to get proper approval at the ministry as illegal fuel station would be demolished.
