Omanhene Fights Govt Over Gomoa Lands

The Omanhene of the Gomoa Ajumako Traditional Area in the Central Region Obrempong Nyanful Krampah XI has appealed to Ministry of Lands and Natural Resource to expedite action for payment of royalties for Gomoa lands that government has vested into the hands of the National Land Commission.

According to the Omanhene, part of Gomoa lands have been vested thus depriving the people access to their lands for farming and other purposes. Sadly, governments through Land Commission over the years has failed to compensate rightful owners of the said lands.

“The Gomoa Ajumako Traditional Council will continue to pursue payment of royalties from the government and subsequent release of all Gomoa lands that has been confiscated which some persons within the Land Commission are secretly selling them for their personal use.”

Obrempong Nyanful Krampah XI made this passionate appeal when he was addressing a durbar organized by the chiefs and people of Gomoa Onyadze in the Gomoa West District of the Central Region.

He expressed the hope that H. E President John Dramani Mahama led NDC government will listen to the cry of the Gomoa people and rescue them accordingly.

The Gomoa Ajumako Omanhene took a swipe on chiefs and heads of various clans for their failure to render proper accounts if their stewardship to their subjects.

“Henceforth any person or groups of persons found guilty of accountability would severely suffer punishment from the traditional council. Its an open secret that some chiefs and family heads sell lands without accounting to their subjects.

I want to remind parents and students here that our bylaw preventing children of school going age seen on the street after 8pm is still in force. Any child found violating this bylaw would be sanctioned alongside his or her parents. This will encourage parents to take keen interest in the education of their wards

The traditional council took this decision to improve standard of education in Gomoa Ajumako”

Obrempong Nyanful Krampah XI finally appealed to the government to ensure that reshaping of the Gomoa Ankamu-Afransi road network was given bitumen status for smooth transportation of good and services.

The Minister for Lands and Natural Resources, Hon. Nii Osae Mills reacting to the Omanhene stated that he would carry out the message hopping something positive would be done about the issues raised on the vested Gomoa lands.

He commended the Omanhene and nananom of the Gomoa Ajumako traditional council for making education their priority stressing that would enhance the development of the area.
