The Anambra State Commissioner for LANDS, Prof. Offornze Amucheazi SAN has, in a brief with news men, indicated that the  State Government will commence the revocation of the Certificate of Occupancy of all land owners who fail to remit the statutory  ground rent for properties in the State.

Prof. Amucheazi noted that the July 31st  deadline is coming after an earlier release by the Ministry on the 5th of July, 2022. The release stated the relevant sections of the Land Use act mandating the payment of the ground rent to government.

The ground rent is an annual fee payable to government by owners of landed properties. According to him, the ground rent is a major revenue source to the State Government backed by extant laws with appropriate punishments for defaulters, including the revocation of the C of O of such properties
