After considering the requests made by residents to Governor Ibikunle Amosun during his tour of the designated centres for collection and submission of forms for the Homeowners Charter Initiative, the Ogun State government has extended the deadline till March 31.
This is to enable people benefit from the opportunity which allows property owners in the state to get Building Plan Approval and Certificate of Occupancy at discounted rate.Commissioner for Information and Strategy, Alhaji Yusuph Olaniyonu said in a statement that the people now have additional one month to collect forms and submit them.
The initial deadline was February 28 and it was announced on December 16 when the scheme was launched in Abeokuta.
Olaniyonu stated that apart from being a direct response to the requests by the people, the new deadline will enable the officials in charge of the programme enough time to attend to the huge crowd witnessed at the various centres.
He added that government has directed that the number of centres should be increased while submission hours are to be extended for the rest of the period of the initiative.
The government commended the residents, who have since been trooping out to embrace the Homeowners Charter programme, for the confidence they reposed in the Amosun administration as it pursues with zeal the Mission to Rebuild Ogun State.
“As promised by Governor Ibikunle Amosun when he toured the centres, government has put in place all necessary facilities and manpower support needed to process on time the thousands of expected applications by residents”, adding that inspection of sites has commenced.
He described the initiatve as a people-oriented programme through which the Amosun administration is determined to passionately improve the standard of living of the people by empowering them with legal documents on their property while also assessing the infrastructural needs of the various areas of the state.
