“The cooperation of our people is desirable. Let’s keep paying our taxes as and when due, so that the social amenities government expend on will continue to increase.
“We are into the Geographic Information System (GIS) that will enable us to determine the number of buildings in the state. This, coupled with the newly produced master plan, will assist us better in planning,” he said.
