Yola - The Adamawa Government says it has allocated 47,000 plots of land to groups and individuals for development across the state.
The state Commissioner for Land and Survey, Alhaji Abdulrahman Shuaibu, said this on Monday while speaking to officials of Royale Criterion Consults, who visited him. Shuaibu also said that land was provided to two developers to provide 3,000 houses in Yola.
Shuaibu said the land allocations were made from 2007 to date. He said the ministry had begun the computerisation of its activities to ensure that by 2014 all transactions on land were done online.
The commissioner, who took the visitors round the office of Adamawa Geographic Information System (AGIS), said that the newly established office had processed 1,000 Certificates of Occupancy.
Earlier, the team leader, Prof. Abba Gambo, said they were in Adamawa to assess the development in the state, particularly in the areas of agriculture and youth empowerment. Gambo lauded the ministry for its effort in computerising its activities in line with best practices.
