Edo urges submission of e-copy of documents to ease application for building plans, permits

The Edo State Government has called for electronic submission of processing documents to the Ministry of Physical Planning, Urban and Regional Development to ease and fast track processing of building plans, permits and other approvals.

Commissioner of Physical Planning, Urban and Regional Development, Isoken Omo, in a statement, said all documents submitted in support of applications for building permits and other approvals from the Ministry must be both hard and electronic copies.

She stated that the soft copies should be submitted in a flash drive.

According to her, "This is in line with the state’s implementation of e-governance in service delivery procedures, which mandates electronic processing of documents.

"The Ministry reiterates that its offices across the state are open for document processing as the Operation Plan Edo (OPE) intensifies and urges adherence to the new guidelines for speedy processing of approvals and permits."
