Bonaventure Enemali is highly rated by the Members of Anambra State House of Assembly for the innovations he has so far introduced at the Ministry of Lands, Physical Planning and Rural Development.
He recently introduced Geographic Information System (GIS) in the Ministry aimed at providing work for at least 80 unemployed persons. The Geographic Information System will go a long way in solving the major problem of double allocation of lands as recorded previously in the Ministry, he echoed.
The GIS is a digital system of land documentations which is also available in places like Abuja. It is expected to promote transparency and discourage fraudulence over land matters. It’ll also put an end to double allocation, illegal taxation and provide relevant information on lands in the state.
