At inception, the immediate past administration of Asiwaju Bola Ahmed Tinubu accepted the burden of the overhaul of the land administration system established by successive administrations in the state. The administration mandated itself, through stated policy statements, to make land administration a strategic resource block for the realization of the beneficial social and economic prosperity promises it made to the people during campaign.
As an expression of that determination, the government established a “Think Tank” on land administration reforms with clear mandate to look at land administration in its entirety and make recommendation for its overhaul. The committee consisted of the best in land administration and other estate management related matters. Therefore no one was surprised,at the far reaching policy changes that was recommended for implementation.
