The Ondo state Government has reiterated it’s commitment to encourage indigenous practitioners in all fields of endeavour.
The commissioner for Lands and Housing, Mr Donald Ojogo spoke in Akure when the Association of Private Practising Surveyors of Nigeria (APPNS) paid him a courtesy call.

Mr Ojogo said no success can be achieved as far as landed property is concerned without the input of the surveyors, he therefore charged members of the body not to relent in proper documentation as the key role of surveyors.

The commissioner thanked the private practising surveyors for their role in the Government owned Irese project and assured them of continued partnership from the state government through the Ministry of Lands and Housing.

Earlier, the National chairman of the Association, Surveyor Ayo Fasina (FNIS) congratulated the commissioner on his appointment.

He promised the association’s unalloyed support pleading with the government through the commissioner to always recognise the imput of surveyors in the area of infrastructural development.

Also speaking, the State chairman of the Association, Surveyor Olusola Sanni (MNIS) noted that Ondo state is the Only state in the south West without the office of the Surveyor General. He pleaded with the state government for the Establishment of the office of the Surveyor General in Ondo state.

In his contribution, the chairman Body of Fellow, Surveyor Ayo Fadipe (FNIS), pledged the Association’s support for the ministry at all times. He advised the government to always expedite action on the approval of survey plans and issuance of certificate of Occupancy (C of O), as this will boost the internally Generated Revenue (IGR) of the state Government.
