“I am not going to sell lands in my office as governor. This is because I will have competent people who will do it in line with the processes we set up,” he said.

“We will immediately deal with the regulatory and judicial bottlenecks that currently exist, digitising the lands registry and publishing land ownership through a Lands Administration Management System (LAMS). We will ensure that a C of O or Governor’s consent is obtainable in 7 to 10 business days.

“Through the use of technology, global best practice processes, and radical transparency, my administration will efficiently and transparently administer the land as our most valuable resource.

“The GIS Land Administration System will also help us deliver on another cardinal plan: to improve urban planning and infrastructure development and support environmental management in Enugu state,” said Nweke.
