"Stop Paying For Birth Certificate, It's Free" - Lagos State Govt. Tells Residents

Lagos State Government
Lagos State Government has asked residents to stop paying for birth certificates, and asked that they report any state official who demand money for it.

The Permanent Secretary, Lagos State Primary Health Board, Dr Tayo Lawal, spoke during the inauguration of the Surulere Primary Health Centre, Agbado- Oke -Odo , Alimosho Local Government Area.

Lawal said that the issuing of birth certificate in the state is free, and disciplinary action is on ground for any official who is found wanting.

“There is, however, one thing I want you to monitor . If we have birth registration in this place and we are issuing birth certificates, you are not expected to pay a kobo for them. 

"If anybody asked you for money, report such a person. We are assuring you that we will provide adequate personnel for this health centre,” Lawal added.

Those state officials that use the issuing of birth certificate to extort money in Lagos State will have to watch it, as the Federal Government of Nigeria will not allow such a person if caught to escape discipline measures.
