    Lagos Land Acquisition: Sanwo-Olu Launches Automated Application Portal

    Lagos State has attained the most advanced stage in land documentation and acquisi­tion, launching an electronic Geographic Information System (e-GIS) which provides digitised access to all data pertaining to the State Land before a purchase is facilitated.

    Governor Babajide San­wo-Olu, on Friday, launched the e-GIS portal — a one-stop digital platform that sanitises and revo­lutionises the process of acquir­ing, documenting and verifying land in Lagos.

    As the portal went live, ap­plications for land titles tran­sitioned from the centuries-old manual paperwork into digital form. The innovation has also completely eliminated services of middlemen in processing of land titles, thereby terminat­ing the cost applicants hitherto paid to lawyers, surveyors and registration agents to get land titles.

    Anyone can now verify, search and apply for land titles, including Governor’s Consent, at Lagos State Land Bureau from the comfort of their homes at the click of a computer button.

    Applicants can also request for a government survey on any State land and apply for Certified True Copy (CTC) on their landed property.

    The e-GIS portal introduced by the Sanwo-Olu adminis­tration came on the founda­tion of Electronic Document Management System (EDMS) bequeathed to the State by the administration of ex-Governor Bola Ahmed Tinubu, now Presi­dent of Nigeria, who started digi­tisation of land title documents in Lagos.

    The Babatunde Fashola ad­ministration built on the EDMS structure, introducing electronic documentation of Certificate of Occupancy (C-of-O). Ex-Gover­nor Fashola phased out the old format of C-of-O, and introduced a computer-generated paper with advanced security features, including barcodes, thereby eliminating forgery and cloning in the State’s land records.
