In a major step towards digitizing land administration, Lagos State Governor Babajide Sanwo-Olu has officially launched the state’s electronic Geographic Information System (e-GIS) portal on Friday.

This marked the beginning of a new era for land registration in Lagos, offering convenience for residents and businesses alike.

The portal, he said, will reduce all forms of manual registration, eliminate the physical presence of applicants at lands bureau offices, enable residents to register their lands from the comfort of their homes, pay all necessary fees online, obtain their title document, and apply for a Certificate of Occupancy among other registrations.

“Therefore, it is critical to highlight that innovative automated process has transited land transactions in digital format, integrating them into our registry and as a result transactions significantly reduce and save costs, meaning that the era of hiding files, or missing files is gone.
