Angry Chiefs in Elmina, in the Central region on Saturday boycotted a sod-cutting event by President John Mahama.
The event was to mark the start of the construction of a new fishing harbour in the area.
The angry chiefs say they have been disrespected by the President.
They claim neither the President nor any government representative consulted them about where the harbour was to be located.
At a press conference in the area on Saturday, Spokesperson for the angry Chiefs, Nana Kojo Aduakwa V said: ‘We have issues to settle with the KEEA and the people that gave the said land’ on which the sod-cutting event took place.
‘We were not privy to any discussion and therefore we are not going to participate in the sod cutting ceremony’, the Akwamuhene of the Edina Traditional area said.
According to him, ‘all this while, the council has not been consulted in the deliberation and determination of the land on which the sod cutting will take place’.
He threatened legal action ‘against the people who want to work on the said land’.
