Revenue mobilisation and disbursement is the core mandate of the Office. Mobilising revenue from stool lands owning communities and allocating a significant portion of the funds for developmental activities is therefore crucial.To ensure equitable distribution of funds, the Office, by law, allocates 55% of the revenue mobilised to Metropolitan, Municipal and District Assemblies (MMDAs) for developmental projects. The office actively collaborates with various stakeholders, including local authorities, traditional leaders, and development agencies to ensure that, the allocated funds are channeled directly into infrastructure projects that would enhance the living conditions of these communities such as Educational, Health, Roads, Sanitary facilities and other utilities.
The Office operates not only as a revenue collection agency but also as a proactive partner in community development to make sure that projects are planned and executed in line with community needs and aspirations, fostering a sense of ownership and inclusiveness.By its mandate, the Office in collaboration with the respective MMDAs reserves the rights to boldly label such funded projects and clearly indicating the source of funding to sensitise the public on the need to contribute to the payment of rent and its connection to the project by the community.
The Office of the Administrator of Stool Lands Act, 1994 (Act 481) was passed to actualize the establishment of the Office. Subsequently, in 1996 the first Administrator of Stool Lands was appointed and the Office began operations.
