The Lagos State Government yesterday launched the Lagos State Electronic Real Estate Litigation System, an online platform designed to provide easy access information to anyone who intends to deal in real estate with information primarily on whether the property is subject of litigation.

Adeniji Kazeem, State Attorney General and Commissioner for Justice, who launched the online platform in Alausa, Ikeja, Lagos, Southwest Nigeria said with the vision of becoming the largest economy in Africa, it was expected that the level of economic and commercial activities in Lagos State would experience an unprecedented level, height and pace, saying that the real estate sector was expected to further attract a significant amount of attention.

“The world we know today is at the click of a button technology driven and the Lagos State government is certainly in trend with the time. We have been working endlessly to ensure that Lagos is not left in the dark ages. This is why several initiatives and steps are being taken to make Lagos State as technologically driven as possible,” he said.

Kazeem further said the Lagos State Electronic Real Estate Litigation System would provide members of the public with information on pending court cases, notify members of the public of real estate/property which were the subject of pending litigation and ensure that members of the public/professional bodies were able to conduct an efficient search of real estate/property that is faster, reliable and convenient.

The commissioner, who was represented by the Solicitor General and Permanent Secretary, Ministry of Justice, Funlola Odunlami added that the platform would curtail risk associated with property transactions and reduce litigation on real estate as the public could now easily confirm if a property was subject of a pending litigation.

Kazeem stated that the platform would enhance due diligence in property transactions, provide a comprehensive database of real estate/property in Lagos which is subject of litigation and allow the members of the public to file for LisPendens, that is, by submitting their case(s) which is subject of a pending Court case and that same would be regarded as sufficient notice.

“This project was conceived to ensure that citizens of Lagos State are better served. It is now being delivered as another promise kept for a better Lagos for all.

This innovative project has been designed in line with this administration’s drive to promote information technology in the State.

“I therefore call on you all to buy into this new initiative, embrace it, and share in our vision of a new, enhanced  System of real estate due diligence  in Lagos State.

This new initiative known as the Lagos State Electronic Real Estate Litigation Electronic System  (Lis Pendens Electronic System) makes this readily available for properties in Lagos State,” he said.

Chief Judge of Lagos State, Justice Opeyemi Oke, who was represented Justice Laide Olayinka described the new platform as a worthy initiative, lamenting that there were many property cases subject to litigation in court which people did not know, adding that the platform would surely complement the justice system in the state.

Surveyor General of the State, Sango Wawa said the launch of the online platform was away of moving the real estate industry forward, stressing that the project would enhance the smart city status Lagos is craving, as everything would not be done online.

The establishment of a Centre for Artificial Intelligence and Robotics in Nigeria (CFAIR) is also expected soon.

The National Information Technology Development Agency (NITDA) said that AI applications enable innovative solutions, improve risk assessment, better planning, and faster knowledge-sharing.

Abdullahi Usman Gambo, director of IT Infrastructure Solution, NITDA, spoke at a workshop in commemoration of International Day for Universal Access to Information (IDUAI) organised by the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organisation (UNESCO).

He noted that AI would open up opportunities for access to information and also help to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) set by the United Nations (UN) in the 2030 Agenda.

Gambo said: “Artificial Intelligence is poised to revolutionize the way we go about our daily lives – from governance to business, legislation to medicine to defence, etc. We can all agree that AI is humanity’s new frontier.

“We have developed initiatives for adoption of emerging technologies such as AI, strengthen cybersecurity, digital skills for digitally excluded citizens while enhancing the regulatory and market environment to increase access to ICTs, and promote seamless access to information.

“We believe AI and associated emerging technologies will completely enhance the speed, efficiency and effectiveness of information gathering during the exchange of data or the ways of communication,” he said.

Delivering his paper, Yushau Shuaib, publisher of PRNigeria, described access to information as the right of the citizens to accurate, transparent, and timely facts and figures.

The former National Emergency Management Agency (NEMA) spokesman stated that governments at all levels have obligations to communicate with people, while the public has the right to know and criticize authorities through constructive engagement.

The media executive, however, appealed to Nigerians not to use social media platforms for fake news dissemination.

“The merits of new media on affordability, accessibility and instant delivery are occasionally marred by the fact that social media is sometimes used to spread fake news”, he said.

Shuaib called for collaboration of stakeholders in ensuring appropriate legislation through public awareness campaigns in order to improve access to universal information.

Pan-African Information and Communications Technology Company, CWG Plc has said the essence of its Enterprise Resource Planning Solution (SMERP) that runs on the cloud is to empower small and medium enterprises in Nigeria and offer them the required tools to manage their entire business.

Mr. Dolapo Orogbemi, Product Manager for SMERP, who disclosed this recently to the media, noted that with SMEs contributing massively to Nigeria’s economy and creating both direct and indirect jobs, SMERP was designed intentionally to help SMEs thrive.

“Since inception, it has been the number one goal for us here at CWG because we have always identified the potential for SMEs once they are provided with the right support.

Thus, SMERP was designed to make available enabling tools for all SMEs across Africa at a relatively affordable price and to also make their business operations lean where they can save more resources to increase profitability,” he said.

Dolapo explained that in support of SMEs, SMERP has provided an effective ERP tailored to the SME market, providing services such as Inventory Management, E-commerce platform, Accounting, Point of Sale and Customer Relationship Management tool.

He argued that one of the major reasons SMEs don’t survive beyond the early stage of their business is due to inadequate funding to scale the business and this has become a default gap in the SME sector.

But with the CWG’s SMERP solution, SMEs can take proper records of their day-to-day business transactions to present to financial institutions as proof of profitability and project business growth for them.

According to him, SMERP’s competitive edge is based on value to the SMEs where they can have access to a complete ERP solution at an affordable price, stressing that the solution enables each SME with special requirements to execute their business needs.
