Suev. Audu who noted that OSGOF has witnessed commendable improvement in recent times said the office now has enough of geospatial and properties information across the country that will be of immense assistance to the panel , adding “I am highly elated at your coming and I assure you of our readiness to furnish you with the necessary information as you carry out your task”.
The surveyor-General who took his time to educate his visitors on the history, structure, mandate and the modus operand o of his office had a device which he said is used to capture geospatial data shown them.
