The Edo State Government announced it has completed preparations to purchase a mobile digital mapper as part of Governor Godwin Obaseki’s efforts to improve land management in the state.
Frank Evbuomwan, the Managing Director of the Edo State Geographic Information Service Agency, revealed this in a statement on Sunday.
Before the end of 2021, Evbuomwan added, the agency planned to open zonal offices in Auchi, Edo North Senatorial District, and Uromi, Edo Central Senatorial District, to issue a minimum of 10,000 Certificates of Occupancy per year.
Evbuomwan said, “At EdoGIS, we have done our best to ensure we deliver on our mandate. At the end of this year, we hope to have cleared the 10,000 marks, and after that, we will start doing a minimum of 10,000 digital C-of-O yearly.

“We also plan to open zonal offices in Auchi in Edo North Senatorial District and another in Uromi in Edo Central Senatorial District before the end of this year”.
Meanwhile, The Governor of Edo State, Godwin Obaseki has vowed never to return to the All Progressives Congress (APC).
Obaseki, who spoke in Abuja on Monday against the backdrop of some governors who were elected under the platform of PDP but defected to APC, insisted he would not join the train.
Recall that the governor left the APC in 2020 after he was disqualified from seeking the party’s re-election ticket. He joined the Peoples Democratic Party (PDP) and was re-elected for a second term.
Recently, three PDP Governors including Dave Umahi (Ebonyi); Ben Ayade (Cross River) and Bello Matawalle (Zamfara) joined the APC.
Obaseki however, stated that rumours making the rounds that he intended to return to the APC were laughable.
He stated that he is committed to serving Edo under the “stable, people-oriented and democratic structure” of the PDP.
