Land registration will be free for chiefs- Bawumia promises

Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, the flagbearer of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), has announced intentions to digitize the land tenure system and make land registration free for chiefs in order to resolve long-standing land conflicts in Ghana.

This is one of many strategies the NPP Flagbearer has presented to resolve conflicts arising from the land tenure system.

Dr. Bawumia, who was addressing the clergy of the Greater Accra Region, pointed out that one of the main barriers to chiefs registering their properties and resulting in title disputes is the high cost of registration fees.

He stressed the necessity to update the land tenure system, giving instances from developed nations where it is simple to find online information on land ownership.

In an effort to end long-standing land disputes in Ghana, New Patriotic Party (NPP) flagbearer Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia has declared plans to digitize the land tenure system and grant chiefs free land registration.

The NPP Flagbearer has offered a number of tactics to settle disputes resulting from the land tenure system, this being one of them.

Speaking to the clergy of the Greater Accra Region, Dr. Bawumia noted that the exorbitant cost of registration fees is a major obstacle that prevents chiefs from registering their lands, which leads to title disputes.

He emphasized the need to modernize the land tenure system and provided examples from wealthy countries where it is easy to locate land ownership information online.

Dr. Bawumia addressed the contentious National Cathedral project in a different question, advising the church to lead the charge in determining a course of action that includes looking at financial options from the business sector.

“The National Cathedral is a highly significant question. I have personally contributed to the National Cathedral, which I think is a very important thing for Ghana. However, I think that as things stand right now, the government and the church should get together and let’s speak about what the National Cathedral should do moving ahead.
