The Kwara State Geographic Information Service, KW-GIS says that it is projecting N1.7 billion as revenue to be generated into the state coffers from the agency in 2023.
The acting Executive Chairman of the agency, Abdulmutalib Shittu, who made this known at a media briefing in Ilorin, said the service was partnering the Nigerian Security Printing and Minting for security of documents emanating from the service.
According to him, the agency realised over N900 million in revenue for the state in 2022, thus surpassing the attainments of the previous administrations. He stated that the services of the agency were being automated for quality service delivery and to avoid unnecessary delay in the issuance of relevant documents in land administration.
Shittu, who noted that the agency understudied some states for improved service delivery, said that it resolved to apply what would be in the best interest of the people of the state.
He assured that certificates of occupancy would henceforth be issued within 30 working days while 15 working days were earmarked for issuance of building permits subject to submission of requisite documents to the service.
