The code of conduct for all land deals in the state that individuals or kindred’s who have personal or communal lands have the right to sell their bona fide property, provided that the President General of the town mandatorily appends his signature to the agreement before the sale can be consummated and forwarded to the ministry of lands, for title deeds.

Secondly, that the Ministry of lands shall be informed to dishonor any application for a title deed which does not bear the signature of the president.

It also warned that any persons or persons who indulge in secret land deals and transactions would be punished by the Oba traditional laws and customs until they return to sanity, among other issues.

The resolution and code of conduct was jointly signed by the traditional ruler of the town, Igwe Peter Ezenwa, the President General O.P.U. Mr. Ifeatu Uzowulu, the Secretary General O.P.U. Mr. Clifford Enendu and the Chairman Land use and sale committee Chief Vincent Obi.

Speaking in an interview, Mr. Uzowulu said that during the Easter General Assembly of the OPU, the general assembly mandated that a land use and sales administration committee be established to bring out a set of rules and regulations for proper and well defined use and administration of sales transactions for all lands in Oba.
