Yobe State government has inaugurated the state’s Geographic Information Service, a digital platform to enhance land administration and management in the state.
Governor Mai Mala Buni who disclosed this during the inauguration of the platform in Damaturu, said the establishment of the Yobe State Geographic Information Service, YOGIS, marked a significant milestone in the state’s efforts to adopt global best practices in land management.
Buni said the digital system is expected to increase revenue generation through titling, lease, consent, mortgages, surveying, mapping, ground rent and perfection of titles.
According to him, to curb land grabbing, racketeering and scams, all land vendors must register for proper records and security before operating.
He added that all commercial businesses including filling stations, hotels, bakeries, water factories, private schools, and corner shops, must settle their dues.
Buni said a 25-year Damaturu masterplan had been approved as part of the state’s urban development plan with experts set to commence work on the project.
“Similar masterplans will be developed for other major urban areas, including Potiskum, Nguru, Gashu’a, Geidam and Buni-Yadi,” he added.
