Why NBGS will repossess plots

The Ministry of Physical Infrastructure in Northern Bahr el Ghazal State has given a week people who have not completed land acquisition process to do so or risk cancellation.

“Your time is up and it is up to you to respond or forget about the plot,” Akot Angui, director general, told Akol Yam FM in Aweil town.

The institution says there are people who were issued tokens in 2019 or 2022 to process their land documents, but they have not moved to the next phases.

A token is a yellow or light blue color containing a plot number that one uses to process the documents. With 35,000 fee, tt expires after 14 days of issuance.

To get it, one drops their application requesting a plot before, starting the processes.

However, some of the applicants were given enough time due to economic crisis but have continued to delay.

“We have given a lot of time because we thought a lot of people were undergoing economic constraints,” Angui continued.

“If you have not turned up to process your documents by Tuesday next week (November 21), please know that you don’t own the plot anymore,” he added.

Akol Yam FM’s efforts to reach some residents with tokens were not immediately successful.
