Ground rent collections in Adamawa State will be fully digitalized. – SSG

In an effort to increase the state’s revenue collection, the Adamawa State Government, in collaboration with the TRV Consultant, has organised a workshop to train Ministry of Land and Survey workers on the digitalization of ground rent collection.

The Ministry of Land and Survey trained officials at the Adamawa State Geographic Information System (ADGIS) in Yola on how to extract and store data from land data files. This will aid with ground rent calculation, which is the foundation for income collection.

Dr. Hamajam Ahmad, the governor’s special adviser on information and communication technology and e-governance, represented the Secretary to the State Government (SSG) at the occasion. Ahmad stated that the program’s purpose is to increase the state’s ability to effectively retain land-related data while also generating income more efficiently.

According to him, the state ministry of land used to collect and survey land data manually, but now that they have a computerised system, they can better utilise the property and generate more revenue.

Dr. Hamajam commends Governor Ahmadu Umaru Fintiri for spearheading the state’s digital development initiative and urges all parties concerned to support Fintiri’s goal of offering the finest possible services.

In his introductory remarks, Mr. Joab S. Haggai, the Honourable Commissioner of Land and Survey, hailed the progress and thanked God for monitoring the reform.

He is committed to work towards achieving the governor’s goal. TRV’s CEO, Mr. Kabiru, stated in his address that their role as revenue generation consultants is to advise the government on untapped revenue streams and how to capitalise on them.

He claimed that the Ministry of Land and Survey’s inadequate collecting system has stopped them from tapping into a plethora of untapped cash streams. As a result, it requires digitization in order to keep up with current trends.
