According to him, the new innovation entails that civil servants in the state and local government service who own houses in Jos and other parts of the state can come forward and submit their applications for Certificates of Occupancy in the ministry, while the cost for processing will be spread on their salaries and paid instalmentally over time.

The commissioner also pointed out that this is in addition to 50 per cent reduction granted by the Governor of Plateau State, Rt. Hon Simon Bako Lalong, during the critical stakeholders meeting recently organised by the ministry.

He implored all civil servants in the state to take advantage of the friendly package to acquire the much needed title documents which, according to him, is of great value that can be used for economic transactions in the future especially at retirement.

He said, “This special package is applicable to corporate organisations such as Nasco, Grand Cereal and Oil Mills Limited, co-operative societies as well as federal government establishments in the state”.

According to him, to benefit from such package, the organisations are expected to forward the names of their staff who are desirous of such title documents who would then be contacted by the ministry for the details of the location of such houses and land.
