The Lands and Natural Resources Ministry says government is seeking to revitalise the operations of the lands commission by involving the private sector in the areas of technical and financial support.
The Ministry says that would serve as the catalyst in the lands sector that now has a new Act.
At the inauguration of the reconstituted central Regional Lands Commission, Deputy Minister of Lands and Natural resources, George Mireku who spoke on behalf of the sector minister indicated government was seeking to maximize gains in the lands sector.
He indicated plans were far advanced to involve the private sector and other sectors that would make the land administration in the country development-oriented.
George Mireku Duker revealed government would celebrating the new Land Act in December in the Central Region.
He said, “The President has promised to join you to celebrate the Lands Act that has been passed and refresh our minds as to how we can disseminate appropriately to the various communities for them to understand it better.”
Mr Duker also reminded the new members that the privileged positions they have been given does not elevate them above the principles and regulations that guide equitable land access and management in the country and added that their service was to the good people of the country and not for their personal interests.
He indicated that the Ministry and the Lands Commission will embark on a national tour to properly explain the technical and legal terms in the new Act to make them understandable to ordinary people.
The new members of the Regional Lands commission were inaugurated and sworn in by High Court judge Justice Kwasi Boakye. He reminded the members to be guided by the oath they have sworn to.
President of the Central Regional House of Chiefs, Odeefuo Amoakwa Buadu, emphasised the need to deal with the challenges associated with land acquisition in the region to attract investors.
