Gov’t Must Intervene In Weija-Gbawe Boundary Dispute – Chief

Nii Ayi Okufuobour I, Chief of Ngleshie Lafa- Barima under the James Town Stool in the Ga South Municipality is appealing to government to help resolve a protracted boundary dispute between Weija and Gbawe in the Greater Accra Region.

Nii said failure to act swiftly and urgently could lead to a clash between agents of the areas who are claiming lands they believed fall within their jurisdiction.

Nii Ayi Okufoubour who also doubles as the Asafoatse for Weija made the appeal during an interaction with a team of journalists who paid a working visit to him.

“Government must step in to avoid a clash between Weija and Gbawe. Government must help settle the boundary issues before it escalates”, he noted.

Nii recalled the many instances of violent confrontations between the two groups and called for an end through governments intervention and further urged all parties to restrain their subjects as they fight the case legally in court to bring finality to the problem.

Nii further appealed to the security operatives in the area to remain neutral and help resolve the issues, stressing that any threat to domestic security must be the concern for all.

According to the Weija Traditional Council some persons have encroached upon some of their stool lands, which is creating tension between them and the Gbawe traditional authorities.

They stated that they had informed the relevant agencies to help deal with the disputed land issue, stressing that there is the need to respect a Supreme Court ruling on the boundary demarcations between the two traditional areas.

According to Nii, the T. R. Lepper settlement and water works extension document is what determines the boundary between Nlgeshie (Weija) and Gbawe but some persons have flatly refused to go by what has been agreed upon way back due to their selfish interests.

Nii stressed on the need for the media to serve as advocates of peace by not taking sides but to deal with the facts in other for them to play their watchdog roles effectively without fear or favor.
