N/R: Lands C’ssion debunks illegal sale of lands in Tamale (video)
Northern Regional Board Chairman of Lands Commission Lawyer Dubik Mahama has debunked claims that the commission is engaged in unregulated sale of state lands within Tamale. This comes after Dagbon Forum, a development oriented advocacy group in the Northern Region accused the commission of indiscriminate sale of state lands within Tamale and its environs.
The indiscriminate sale of state lands within the Northern Region in recent times, met the anger of many residents within Tamale.
This, some few months ago, prompted the NDC Members of Parliament from the Northern Region to give a serious warning to all those involved in the selling of state lands within the Northern Region to desist from the act.
About a week ago, lands belonging to the Ghana Broadcasting Corporation, GBC were sold to a private developer, of which residents of Tamale, promised to resist for the rest of their lives.
On the back of these developments, Dagbon Forum, issued a press statement accusing the lands commission of selling state lands within the Northern region indiscriminately.
The Lands commission in a press conference organised in Tamale, debunked the claims saying, all what they do, is in accordance with the laws of the land.
They have also called on Dagbon Forum to get themselves well informed about the activities of the Lands commission saying, all what they’re doing is for the well-being and development of Tamale and Dagbon as whole.
