“The Nigeria Bar Association lauds El Rufai’s land reforms. Governor Nasir El-Rufai was being commended for eradicating bureaucratic bottlenecks which characterised land transactions and administration.
The association praised the governor for what it termed ‘transformation of the lands ministry’, saying the revolutionary approach in the land administration was laudable.
The Chairman, Sherrif Ndasule, spoke at the opening of the 2017 edition of the annual Law Week.
The Law Week was themed: “Governance, Stakeholders’ Engagement and the Law in Kaduna State”.
His words: “The transformation of the Bureau for Lands, Survey and Country Planning, to the Kaduna Geographic Information Service (KADGIS), in no small measure alleviated the rigour and bureaucratic bottlenecks which hitherto heralds lands transactions and administration.
He, however, urged the government to do more in citizens’ engagement in governance, with a view to carrying them along and giving them a sense of belonging.
“In rising to the needs of the people and the society, government should, at the same time, engage stakeholders’ and give them a sense of belonging.,” he added. ”
