According to him, when it comes to land ownership and its related issues; there are guided regulations to it which leads the leadership in apportioning lands in the Ashanti region.

“no family whether Mampong, Nsuta owns lands. “We don’t sack the families from the land but there are regulations that guide chiefs on taking care of a situation where the land is needed for a project…”

“it’s the responsibility of the chief and the stool to ensure that the required documentation is given in case of land apportioning,” he said.
