Probe Between Military And La Traditional Council Land Dispute Report To Be Submitted  By The End Of June

Minister of Lands and Natural Resources, Samuel Abu Jinapor, has disclosed that the Benito Owusu Bio-chaired committee examining the impasse between the Military and the La Traditional Council over land in Accra will submit its final report by the end of this month.

The La Traditional Council, in recent times, has called on the President to order the military to desist from encroaching on parcels of La lands in the Greater Accra Region.

However, a violent confrontation between the conflicting groups forced the sector Minister to subsequently set up a committee to probe the issues at hand, with the committee set to present its findings in the coming days.

The Minister provided this answer to Parliament in response to questions posed by Dadekotopn MP, Rita Odorley Sowah.

Mr Jinapor also commended the disagreeing parties for their cooperation with the committee.

“The committee is done with its work, and it is preparing its report for the consideration of the government"

“Mr Speaker, I should happily inform the House that even though this matter is yet to be resolved, the two parties, namely the La Traditional Council and the Ghana Armed Forces, have exhibited a high level of cooperation constructively and seem to be engaging in good faith.”
