PULITZER MEDIA WORKSHOP ON DATA JOURNALISM ON LAND AND PROPERTY MATTERS AT CENTRE OF EXCELLENCE, BIODUN SHOBANJO BUILDING, DEPARTMENT OF MASS COMMUNICATION, UNILAG

November 24, 2015.

COMMUNIQUE
As the statutory custodians of lands in Nigeria courtesy of the 1978 Land Use Decree, State Governments must ensure the systematic management of land in order to achieve optimum utilization, value enhancement, and reduction of slums.

One of the ways to do this is to ensure proper participatory and inclusive mapping and inventory of all lands both on statutory and customary rights.

State Governments should embark on proactive lay-outs of all lands, prescribe appropriate usage, and ensure strict compliance.
