There is increasing awareness that innovations foster inclusive land administration and ease of access to land among citizens but studies exploring innovations in government within the context of developing countries are scanty. This study examines the effect of innovations in government on exploitation of land as a source of wealth, security of rights to land, private land ownership, and supply of information on land-use in Lagos State. The study uses a mixed research methodology. First, we identified two dimensions of innovations in government using Exploratory Factor Analysis (EFA). Second, we estimated four multiple linear regression models and tested twelve statement of hypotheses.  The findings show that while systems and process innovations have significant effect on security of private rights to land, only systems innovation have significant effect on private ownership of land, and supply of land-use information. Finally, the implications of the findings for sustainable practice of efficient land administration in Lagos State are carefully discussed.
