The Greater Accra Regional Minister Hon. Henry Quartey has revealed that there are over 20,000 land dispute cases in the Greater Accra Region being litigated at the various courts.
The Minister made the revelations at Ada when he joined the chiefs and people of the Ada Traditional Area to celebrate this year’s Ada Asafotu fiami festival which ended on Sunday 14th July, 2022.
He said, land owners especially, chiefs, sells lands to multiple people which always end up in litigation at the courts.
Some of the chiefs, the minister disclosed exchanges lands with big cars leaving their youths with nothing.
“Naamei, listen very carefully, my last check revealed that there are more than 20,000 land dispute cases at the various courts amongst us in the Greater Accra Region, this is because, our chiefs are selling our lands to multiple buyers which mostly ends up in litigation”
“Naamei, the most sorrowful thing is that they exchange those lands with big cars only for themselves and in few days you will see that those cars got spoiled and are parked”.
The minister added that “Our chiefs seem not to care about the future of our youth to ask the investors to establish hospitals and factories for us but rather fight only for their interest”.
Mr. Quartey who spoke passionately over the development appealed to the chiefs to end the incessant sale of their lands in other to secure the future of their youth which will also see to the end of the unnecessary litigations.
