Mr Nurayn Adebisi, the House Committee Chairman on Lands, Physical Planning and Urban Development, made the call on Tuesday in Osogbo at  a meeting with consultants engaged for the operation of the land use charge and officials of the  Ministry of Finance.

Adebisi also said that there was need to review the operations of the land use consultants with a view  to adhering strictly with the public procurement law.

He said there was also need for public enlightenment on the importance of the land use charge

In her remarks, the Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Finance, Mrs  Adebimpe Ogunlumade, said that the ministry would ensure that the revenue generated from  land use charge was deployed  in line with the enabling law.
