37% of Ghana's Farmland Recolonized

The act of foreign companies purchasing Ghana lands is wrong. Ask yourself - How much land does the Ghanaian government own in other countries for any purpose? We should rather rent the lands and monitor how the land is used, to ensure its use does not have an adverse effect on the local community and the country as a whole. We should refrain from selling and loosing our heritage through the greed of a few who rape the country to line their pockets. When will individuals take pride and learn to act for the sake of the nation and not to benefit their bank balance? Where is our pride that we are so easily bribed to loose our heritage?
If the land and what is beneath was not valuable, would these companies be rushing to purchase it and pay lip service with a few so-called sustainable developments? Who is monitoring the use of the lands? Mother Ghana, beware!
