INTRODUCTION

 

 

1.1   Background of the Study

 

According to the Merriam-Webster’s Dictionary of Law, a ground rent is the rent paid by a lessee for the use of land especially for building or, a rent charge reserved to himself for his or her heirs by the grantor of land in fee on perpetual lease, or on lease for a renewable term of years.” In essence, ground rent is a fee charged on landed property by the government, at least going by the law which stipulates that the government is the chief owner of land in Nigeria.

 

The world today faces many complex challenges including rapid urbanization and growing food, water, energy shortages etc. Many of these challenges have clear land dimensions and have a repeated mention in the literature (Palmer et al., 2009). Responding to the challenges of urbanization in particular is difficult when the governance of land is weak. This observation leads to the proposition that land policy reform is important and that an understanding of the reform process from governance and political economy perspective offers insights that can not only improve land administration, but can also offer tools to support its implementation. Land is an ultimate resource that provides the basis for life. It is both a physical commodity and an abstract concept, in that the rights to own or use it are as much a part of the land as the objects rooted in its soil. Land is fixed in supply and is a basic place of human activities. Humankind has always had close association with land as a basis for food, shelter and livelihood development.

 

Land is of fundamental importance to economic activity and development. It is often the most common means of storing wealth and a powerful economic asset. It provides foundation for economic activity in sectors as varied as agriculture, industries, housing and tourism and is also a key factor in the functioning of market (e.g. credit) and non-market institutions (e.g. local governments). Land acquisition and transfer in Nigeria has largely been organized through informal means such that between 50-70 percent of urban land in Nigeria is delivered through informal practices. The limitations of the informal process have created bottlenecks in gathering and storing data for land administration; which is a key prerequisite for effective land management. The reversal of these shortcomings is concerned with changing the rules, processes and structures through which decisions are made about the use of, and control over land; the manner in which the decisions are implemented and enforced, and the way competing interests in land are managed. Reform generally has implications for land agencies, courts and ministries responsible for land, as well as non-statutory actors such as traditional bodies and informal agents. Its scope covers both the legal and policy framework for land as well as the traditional and informal practices that enjoy social legitimacy. Before other objectives, land administration reform also aims at protecting the property right of an individual and enterprises as well as the state by introducing such principles as transparency, accountability, rule of law, equity, participation and effectiveness into land related public sector management.

 

As observed by Bell (2007) governments with a record of transparency, accountability and responsiveness are far more likely to attract investment, provide high-quality public services and manage resources more cost-effectively than those whose activities are opaque. Being output of reform, improved access to land and the security of tenure can guarantee food security, social stability, economic growth and poverty reduction. They are the essential basis for livelihood of all people around the globe (FAO, 2007). Access must be stable and secured if it is to provide an opportunity for economic growth and the incentive to invest.

A study conducted by Arnot and Meadows (2006) , reveals that a good land administration system should be seen to; guarantee ownership and security of tenure; support land and property taxation; provide security for credit; develop and monitor land market; facilitate land administration reform and alleviate poverty; improve urban planning and infrastructure development; support environmental management and produce statistical data; support governance and rule of law; and reduce land dispute.

I actually googled and saw about iproject master, copied the number and contacted them through WhatsApp to ask for the availability of the material and to my luck they have it. So there was a delay with the project due to the covid19 pandemic. I was really scared before making the payment cause I’ve been scammed twice, they attended so well to me and that made me trust the process and made the payment and provided them with proof, I got my material in less than 10minutes
