Our Military will go to Hell for this. The LORD'S The Land and its Fulness. Traditional Rulers, not Governors are the Custodians and Trustees of Lands for The LORD. Miyetti Allah FH and Bokoharam under BUHARI, The Cabals and Senate President who is a GEOGRAPHER, are now exploiting the Land Use Decree for Selfish reasons and for the liquidation of The Tribes, Languages e Climes.

It has been a blessing in disguise
An improvised people soon lose all their land
When the economy is stable enough for people not to sell their community to eat, we would change the laws

That's a stupid arguement. Nobody loses anything because the land until they sell. The governor can already confiscate land for what ever reason. Prolonging use laws only harms investment in sector wheather you're selling or not.

None of that matters to you because you actually care about the economy or individual liberty. Most of you too dense for your own. First it's about ruga then you shifted goal post. Continue to be a mumu for your state governor.

Section 22 of the LUA prohibits any person to whom the Governor has granted a statutory right of occupancy from assigning, mortgaging, transferring, subleasing or howsoever adversely dealing with the land against the terms of grant, without having first had and obtained the consent of the Governor. 
Under the LUA, each transaction will need to be signed off by the Governor, to approve land for the developers. 
Also, should those RSA holders seek to mortgage their titled property as collateral to obtain loans, they will need to get their assignment signed off by the Government. This makes Home Equity Line of Credit as a financing option very expensive in Nigeria. 
The LUA leads to transaction bottlenecks, is cumbersome, tiresome and creates  “negative wealth” as all land without C of O cannot be brought into any formal transaction.

What I still don't quite get is "when you say the land should be transfer to the people" do you mean the local chiefs, the subsistence farmers that has been using the land for ages or divided among all the indigenous families that can lay claim to that locality-eve at this, how will the land divided among these families?

I'm in support in giving the land back to the people because that will allow farmers, property developers and the general public to use the land more meaningfully for general economic activities but I want to know how this land will be distributed among people.

Homestead principle says land belongs to the person who settled on the land and making improvements. The second way is to buy said land. The land should be owned by individuals who have title or "hold" it already. Remember 97% of land is untitled.The people who have title or hold the land would simply formally register it with state. This just neccessary to track who owns what.

The complications come with communally owned spaces. There's probably local laws sd customs. The courts and local legislatures sort that out. I hope this libertarian answer is satisfactory.

The governor is not suppsed to be your Surrogate daddy loser. The fact he's a representative doesn't mean he should have Authority over land assets. Lol do you want the governor to control financial assets aswell?

Government and individual investors buy land all over the place. The japanese did the same in the 80s in the us. The chinese do it now in Canada and Australia. They'll simply bid up the price and help those hungry Africans. The government csn also dissuade rampant foreign ownership with laws and taxation on their purchases like Canada does.

They state is not better custodians of land clown. You can see it in the failure of them to develop farming sector and real estate sector. The rampant housing shortage in Nigeria is an effect this bad law. Your paranoid delusions and emotional appeals dont dispute facts. Lol you actually are a mumu for your governor.

Other sectors like entertainment industry. The fact they wouldn't is also due to monetary policy. Abuja had federal money flowing in clown and investment. You already see how land use act hinders investment and drives up transaction cost.

Mumu Canada practices free hold system like Im advocating. You're proving my point showing Canada has individual ownership unlike Nigeria. They practice same system as the United States and UK. Lol your foolishness is too much. Read the article before trying to argue. Nobody said the government couldnt own land. Continue to be a mumu for your governor.

Lol you're too idiotic for your own good. You shift the goalposts in each response. Now concentration of wealth is your issue? The land use act doesn't solve that in Nigeria mumu. Have you considered the fact the aristocrats royals and private investors own the land. Germany also has the same system with lower rates of wealth inequality.

Lol you're such a slowpoke. Instead arguing the Facts you're now reverting back to your paranoia about fulani stealing land. If you weren't stupid you already know buhari the fulani vetoed water way bill the 8th assembly passed. The land use act should be revoked for the reasons already mentioned.

The President said he was rejecting the Nigeria Inland Waterways Authority Bill based on the issue of funding and overlap of functions.

According to him, “The comprehensive definition of the Nigeria Inland Waterways covers virtually all rivers, lakes and lagoons irrespective of the location of the body. The bill contradicts provisions of the constitution which limits the power of the National Assembly to make laws in relation to water from sources affecting more than one state of inland waterways which has been declared to be an international waterway or inter-state waterway.

Your mentor Rauf Odenni Aregberascal sold vast tracts of Osun virgin forests to Chinese loggers and miners.

Why did you not complain ?

I know why you are now championing the abolishing of having state governors as custodians of the land because it impinges on your precious Ruga policy

Don't mind that silly Fulani terrorist.

I have said it, the Fulanis must be confronted in a war. There is NO WAY they will stop their evil machinations against the middle belt & southern Nigeria until they are made to also pay in blood as they do to other middle belt and southern communities.

Lol you paranoid clowns are pussies. You're not going to war with anyone. The land use act doesn't help the average citizen any good but you guys like being serfs to governors. The second you mumus have to defend your stupid position you crumble.

Beachside:


An organized society like my sketch is not possible with freehold land ownership.

This is so dumb you cant be serious. This one of the most illogical statements on this thread. Organized societies like this exist already under freehold land systems. You know countries like America, UK, Canada Germany etc. all have freehold land systems. Your premise is false and your conclusion is false.

I get your point .
My personal method if I were in charge of Calabar or a Nigerian state: Demolish everything and compensate all home owners with equivalent money or land & house in the final product of the city planning .
My main concern and focus is on the city planning and structure itself ,not necessarily the land ownership. I'm undecided ,but I feel government should own all lands and only sell or lease large acres to property developers. Building codes and zoning laws are mandatory .

You dont seem undecided since you restated support for position. You want the government to own all the land because you're not in favor or private land ownership even though it lead to dead assets, higher transaction cost, bureaucratic red tape, agricultural unproductivity etc. The government already has the power you mentioned and failed miserably in the housing sector. Simply put if therw were less hurdles to property development the market would step in naturally.

The role of local and state government should be to regulate real estate development with zoning laws, building codes and keeping title history. The idea of the state buying up all the houses and starting over isn't feasible. Alot the land is farmland so you're not going to just replace it. Did you even consider the market for these properties?

Ps: it's weird you guys comment of thread about land ownership but dont have thought out positions on the subject.

Your comment is insanely stupid you lying clown. I'm guessing mental retardation is a dominant trait in your bloodline. The benefits of allowing individuals to own land is far greater. The governor doesn't have to be the custodian of land to stop federal take over. Eminent domain wouldn't give the FG the power to seize all the land at will either.

This thing ruined a deal for me this year. About 9M would have walked into my account without hassle if not for the government acquisition on. It.
