The Oborevwori administration has re-emphasized the need for timely delivery of Certificates of Occupancy and other land documentations as they form a critical and very important requirement for successful business endeavours.
The Commissioner therefore called on members of the public who desire to apply for C of O to do so without fear of delay forthwith.
“As at today, applicants can now interact with the Ministry for enquiries bothering on their applications through Officers of the Ministry using the following contacts;
1. Lands Department 07030735320) or
2. Delaarms Help Desk 08148954373
“The Ministry also wishes to inform the public that it currently has about 634 Certificates of Occupancy processed and ready awaiting collection while another 262 are presently in various stages of printing and will be ready in 2 (two) weeks for collection.
“While some of the applicants have been contacted via their telephone lines, they are yet to respond.
“We appeal to those who have been contacted privately to come for collection as the Ministry will have no choice but to publish the list of those who abandon their documents in the Ministry,” Obiodeh stated.
