Ogun state government has restated its determination to continue to initiate programmes and policies, especially in the area of land that will attract more investments and make the state an investor hub for Nigeria.

In separate remarks, Commissioner for Physical Planning, Mr Tunji Odulami and his Housing ministry counterpart, Jagunmolu Jamiu Omoniyi, said the distribution of CofO to 5,000 people was an indication that the present administration was taking the bull by the horns to address the delay in the distribution of the documents.
