Why C of O is Hard To Acquire in Nigeria
Firstly, all land belongs to the Nigerian Government. This is according to the Law (1978 land use act). That means that every Nigerian is a tenant of the Nigerian Government.
Even if you are the Chagoury brothers, the Nigerian-born Lebanese billionaires and you bought bar beach and turned it into Eko Atlantic, the land still belongs to the Nigerian Government. That is, you acquired useless water front, turned into a mega city, will employ 250,000 Nigerians and boost the local economy. After all that, the land still does not belong to you.
Now imagine you buy 500 sqm from Eko Atlantic, which is at least 360M (2015 data) if it is NOT by a road. Since Eko Atlantic is still within Nigeria, your 360M land belongs to the Federal Government.

What the C of O implies is that the Government has given you that piece of land to occupy. Note that it is not to own, but to occupy. It is called Certificate of Occupancy, not of ownership. Usually, the duration is for 99 years. After this duration, you are expected to reapply. The constraint is in the fact that only the State Governor of your state signs the C of O.
