Gov't should make chiefs key development partners


BUT THE CHIEFS IN GHANA ARE THE ONES THAT CONTINUES TO UNDERDEVELOP THE COUNTRY.

WHERE IN THIS PART OF THE WORLD DO CHIEFS BE CUSTODIANS OF NINETY PERCENT OF THE LANDS IN GHANA.

THE CONTROL OF THE LANDS BY CHIEFS ARE A RESULT OF THE MANY LETIGATIONS THAT GOES IN THE COUNTRY.

THE FUNNY PART OF GETTING LAND IN ANY PART OF GHANA IS, ONE HAS TO GO TO THE CHIEFS SO CALLED PALACE TO SEEK FOR A LAND FOR PROPEERTY BUIKDING OR INDUSTRY.

THERE YOU ARE TOLD BY THE CHIEF, HE CANNOT DECIDE ALONE AND THEREFORE ONE HAS TO WAIT UNTIL HE HAS INFORMED HIS SUB CHIEFS WHO ARE ABSENCE FRON THE STOOL WORKING IN WESTERN, EASTERN, CENTRAL,ASHANTI AND BRONG-AHAFO REGIONS.

THE CHIEF INFORMS THEM, AND THERS IS A DATE WHICH SET FOR THEM TO COME AND MEET THE INVESTOR OR THE PRIVATE PROPERTY BUILDER.

THAT IS TO SAY THE SI CALLED INVESTOR HAS TO WAIT ONE WEEK BEFORE THE MEETING.

ON THE DAY OF THE MEETING THE INVESTOR GOES THERE AND TO BE TOLD ONE OF THE SUB CHIEFS HAS MISSED HIS TRAIN OR TRANSPORT AND THE ONE CANNNOT COME BECAUSE HIS DAUGHTER OR SON IS SICK AND HE HAS TO BE TAKEN TO HOSPITAL.

AND BEFORE THE MEETING THE CHIEF ASKS THE INVESTOR TO COME WITH THREE BOTTLES OF SCHNAPPS, AND LIBATION FEE OF ONE MILLION CEDIS.

THIS MEANS, THE INVESTOR HAS BEEN IN THE COUNTRY FOR ALMOST TWO WEEKS AND HAS NO OTHER ALTERNATIVE THSAN TO WHILE THE WHOLE OF HIS TIME AT A HOTEL.

OKYEHENE, WITH ALL THESE NEGATIVE DEVELOPMENTS THAT GOES ON FOR A LEASE OF A COMMON ONE ACRE, HOW CAN CORRUPT CHIEFS BE MADE AS KEY DEVELOPMENT PARTNERS IN GHANA.

THE EARLIER, THE LANDS IN GHANA ARE SEIZED FROM THE CHIEFS, THE BETTER WILL IT BE FOR THE STATE OF GHANA TO DEVELOP AND TO MEET THE IDEALS OF THE 21st CENTURY.

THE BRAIN BEHIND LANDS BEING IN THE HANDS OF PARAMOUNT CHIEFS IN GHANA, WAS DELIBERATELY PLANNED BY THE BRITISH COLONIAL GOVERNMENT TO UNDERDEVELOP THE NATION.

ITS SIXTY TWO YEARS GHANA ATTAINED INDEPENDENCE AND HOW LONG SHOULD SUCH PRIMITIVE SYSTEM BE ALLOWED TO GO ON IN THE COUNTRY.

A VICIOUS CIRCLE.
