A new digitalized certificate of occupancy (C-OF-O) under the homeownership charter scheme of Ondo state HOCOS has been Inaugurated.

Governor Oluwarotimi Akeredolu while performing the ceremony in Akure, the Ondo State capital gave out the documents to the first thirty beneficiaries.

Mr Akeredolu said the idea was to arrange a customer-friendly approach for legitimate ownership of land in the state and boost the economy.

He hinted that landowners without titles from the improved digitalized HOCOS C-Of-O would no longer access any form of compensation for property demolition occasioned by infrastructural projects.

In a remark, the commissioner for lands and infrastructure, Mr Raimi Aminu said the new phase of the project would kick start in earnest appealing to residents to patronize the scheme.

Dignitaries at the ceremony included Deputy Governor Lucky Aiyedatiwa, Deji of Akure, Oba Aladelusi Aladetoyinbo, Olowa of Igbara Oke, Oba Francis Agbede, State APC chairman, and Mr Ade Adetimehin.
