The government of Kaduna State the land reform will help improve it s internally generated revenue.

The Kaduna State Government is to embark on land administration reform to improve its internally generated revenue, an official said on Tuesday.

The Commissioner for Lands, Survey and Country planning, Sani Aminu, said in Kaduna that the reform would help in reinvigorating economic activities in the state.

Mr. Aminu said under the reform, lands in the 23 local government areas would be fully utilised.

“A greater part of the land mass was under utilised due to ineffective policies.

“Only three per cent of land in Nigeria is fully utilised. A lot of people do not have access to land, which is one of the major bottlenecks to land value and utilisation,” he said.

He said that the absence of planning in the utilisation of land resources in the country had resulted to low economic value for land.

“We generated N800 million in 2012 as against the targeted N6 billion,” he said.
