Delta State Commissioner for Lands, Survey and Urban Development, Sir Dan Okenyi, has set up a committee to identify undeveloped plots of land allocated to individuals and organisations in the core area of Asaba,  Delta State.

The committee which is headed by Mr. Alex Eboka, will identify plots that are yet to be developed by their owners two years or more after they were allocated.

According to a statement, yesterday, the exercise was necessitated by the prevalence of undeveloped plots of land some of which were allocated for upwards of five years and duly issued with Certificates of Occupancy.

While setting up the committee which will be inaugurated next week,  Okenyi noted that some of the beneficiaries were engaging in land speculation without any intention to develop the property.
