The rapid pace of converting peri-urban lands into building plots for brick and mortar, the president said should be top on their priority lists and expressed the urgent need to check the horizontal development of the country’s cities and implement more sustainable options.

It would be recalled that the old Lands Commission has been restructured and its mandate was expanded by the Parliamentary Act 2008(Act 767).

The Act brought four land sector agencies namely; the Survey Department, Land Valuation Board, Land Title Registry and the old Lands Commission under the umbrella of the “new” Lands Commission.

Significant reduction in the turnaround time for title registration from the current seven months or more to less than three months, the President said should engage the attention of the Commission. This, he said will serve as an indicator in measuring their performance during their tenure in office.

President Mahama further described the multiple systems of records keeping at each of the four (4) Divisions of the Lands Commission as a clear demonstration of an obvious challenge in implementing the spirit and letter of the Lands Commission Act, 2008(Act 767). He therefore directed the Commission members and management to as a matter priority take steps to quicken and smoothen the integration of the four Divisions into a real single corporate body.

 The President also directed them to quicken the business re-engineering processes of the Commission and ensure the establishment of the Customer Service and Access Units (One-Stop-centres)

The Chairman of the Lands Commission, Alhaji Bakari Sadiq Nyari, stated the readiness of the Commission to give policy direction to the government in land administration especially on the growing phenomenon of large scale land acquisitions for agriculture, rapid urbanization and phenomenal growth of settlements.

The Commission, Alhaji Sadiq Nyari explained would also provide the needed guidance for development of lands by the local and traditional authorities.

Alhaji Sadiq Nyari gave the assurance that the Commission will not shy away from taking bold decisions as well as breaking away from the normal to spur the Commission on a better path to fulfilling its mandate.

Speaking in an interview, the Acting Executive Secretary of the Lands Commission, Dr. Wilfred K. Anim-Odame, expressed optimism of the Commission’s readiness to transform the Lands Commission into a centre of excellence and called for attitudinal change among staff of the Commission in order to contribute to productivity for national development.

Ajene, Upper East Regional Representative; Mr. Benjamin S. Y. Wureku, Western Regional Representative; Nii Osah Mills, Ghana Bar Association Representative; Mr. K.D.
