His reform activities in NAGIS (Nasarawa Geographic Information Service) has significantly increased revenue generation as people are encouraged by the efficient system and the secure documentation to register their land. More people have obtained Certificates of Occupancy (C-of-O) since the inauguration of NAGIS than any past comparable period of time. This has resulted in significant increases in the revenues generated. It is important to note that these revenues are sustainable, as conveying more C-of-O’s will result in increased Ground Rent collections.
