Traditional Leaders Urged To Stop Indiscriminate Sale Of Lands


The Divisional Queen mother of Sakumono under the Nungua Traditional Council in the Greater Accra region,  Naa Borley Wulu II, has reiterated the need for Chiefs and other traditional office holders to stop the indiscriminate and multiple sale of land to avoid litigation between Chiefs and individuals.


According to her, it is wrong for traditional leaders to sell lands for their own selfish gains, adding that it is the duty of a Chief and traditional leader to give out lands to be used for development and also preserve land for the future generation. 

Naa Borley Wulu II, said this in a New Year message noted that the indiscriminate sale of lands in the Greater Accra region had given rise to criminal activities among the youth.

Naa Borley Wulu II, also expressed concern over multiple installation of Chiefs in the country, particularly in the Greater Accra region and appealed to chiefs and their supporters in the various traditional areas within Greater Accra to put aside their differences and unite.

This she said would put an end to rampant chieftaincy disputes in the various GaDangme communities.

Naa Borley Wulu II, further pointed out that constant chieftaincy disputes within the region are hindering socio-economic developments.

Touching on customs and traditions, she entreated Ghanaians to cherish and appriciate their cultural values and traditions to enhance the development of Ghana.

Naa Borley Wulu II, noted that the beauty of a people is their cultural values, adding that a nation could not develop without knowing its history, customs and traditions.

She reminded Ghanaians to respect their traditions as there is no difference between what is done traditionally and directions received from pastors.

Commenting on education, Naa Borley Wulu II, called for equal opportunity for the education of both male and female children stressing that good education is the best investment parents could bequeath their children.

She therefore urged parents to encourage their wards to study hard, while providing their basic needs such as books, pocket money and clothing.
