The youth of Gomoa Akotsi in the Central Region have appealed to the chief and elders of the township to work together to ensure lasting peace.
According to the youth, recent wrangling between the chief of Gomoa Akotsi, Nana Osafo Ninsen XVIII and Nana Onoma Okraka Badu VIII, Tufuhene of the traditional area over land issues was affecting the peace and stability of the township.
Speaking at a media briefing in Accra, Patrick Amoah, youth leader of Gomoa Akotsi said land matters could only be settled through dialoguing and understanding.
Nana Onoma Okraka Badu VIII and Nana Osafo Ninsen XVIII are at loggerheads over sale of lands in the Gomoa Akotsi Township.
The Tufuhene was reported to have asked all persons who have bought lands from the chief to vacate them or face force eviction.
However, Patrick Boamah in response said Nana Osafo Ninsen XVIII is the only authorised person to sign and regulate land documents in the area.
Therefore, he said any land sold by the chief is legal, urging owners of the land to continue building on the land for whatever purpose without fear.
Mr Aboamah said, ‘We need peace in order to develop. Without peace, we can never develop the community.
He assured that measures would be put in place to ensure lasting peace in the community, stating that ‘it is only peace the people of Akotsi need and not litigation.’
