Queen Mother Urges Gov’t To Deal With Landguards

Naa Dawa I, queen mother of Gbawe New Awoshie, in Accra has appealed to the government to deal decisively with landguards whose activities pose security threat to the people in the area and retard development.

She alleged that some estate developers and individual land title owners were employing the services of landguards to terrorise prospective landowners.

Naa Dawa I, who made the call after inaugurating Inner Link Hotel at Gbawe in the Ga South District, however, advised the public to purchase land from the rightful owners to avoid litigation and confusion.

She said: “You must obtain all relevant documents covering the land because that is the only way you can know whether the land belongs to someone else or not.”

Naa Dawa noted that those engaging in landguard activities, were mostly unemployed youth, and urged the government to support the private sector to create more jobs.

Mr. Theophilus Konadu Taylor, Managing Director of the hotel, said though operators of the private sector were doing their best to help improve the economy, increase in tax, and electricity and water bills, were forcing many private firms to close down.

He advised the youth to save at the bank and put to good use the little resources at their disposal, saying “starting something is what can encourage others to assist you”.

He appealed to the government to rehabilitate roads in the district, to facilitate economic activities. By Collins Boateng
