President Goodluck said that supplying the government with modern information systems will allow it to better manage its resources therefore such systems should be installed in every state of the federation. The president watched a live demonstration of the system that at its peak, the first land Certificate of Occupancy (C of O) was issued to the President by the state government.
PLAGIS is a unit of the Ministry of Land, Survey and Town Planning of Plateau state. One of the goals of this administration was to control urban development by modernizing the processes of land titling. President Goodluck described the project as a unique project and commended the state government for the initiative.
In 2006 Sivan Design has commissioned FELIS - the Federal Land Information System which is used to manage Federal land and resources. Since then, similar systems were installed in Benue, Nasarawa, Niger, Kwara, and Kaduna states while other systems are planned to be installed in the very near future.
