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.

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.
