Okofo Katakyi Nyakoh Eku X, the Omanhene of Nyakrom Traditional Area, has said documents on sales of lands in the area would be endorsed by traditional councils to avoid legal tussles.

He said the move would help streamline the challenges concerning sales of lands by family heads and chiefs as the traditional councils would serve as principal witnesses in any event of dispute.

Okofo Katakyi Nyakoh Eku made this known when he addressed the members of the Traditional Council at their 2019 last meeting at Nyakrom in the Central Region.

The meeting was to take stock of past activities and to adopt new strategies towards the development of Agonaman in 2020.

The meeting was attended by Mrs Justina Marigold Assan, the Agona West Municipal Chief Executive; Mr Dennis Armah Frempong, Agona District Chief Executive; Mr Bernard Joe Appeah, a management consultant; Mr Yawson Otoo, the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Ikson Properties Agency Limited.

Also present were all the divisional chiefs, queen mothers in the Nyakrom Traditional Council, heads of families, chief linguists, heads of department and Police Commanders.

Okofo Katakyi Nyakorh Eku said the decision by the Regional House of Chiefs would go a long way to reduce land matters and enhance development, adding that; “If land disputes continue to linger in the area it would be difficult to attract investors to create jobs and wealth.”

The Omanhene called on the chiefs and family heads to make the sales of lands transparent to avert conflicts among themselves.

Okofo Katakyi Nyakoh Eku said plans are in place to organise workshops for chiefs, queen mothers and other traditional staffs to enable them play their expected roles to promote development.

Mr Joe Appeah, a Management Consultant, urged the people of Agona West and Agona East to network with people in government to lobby for job opportunities.

Mr Dennis Armah Frempong, the District Chief Executive for Agona East, said the Assembly has been able to execute all flagships programmes of the government including Planting for Food and Jobs, Planting for Export and Rural Development, One District One Factory to create jobs and wealth among the youth.

Mr Yawson Otoo, the Chief Executive Officer of Ikson, called on the citizens of Agona both home and abroad to pull their resources together to support the development of the area.
