The Chief Executive Officer of Gyam Engineering and Construction Works Ltd Ing. Dr. Ebenezer Ankomah Gyamera has urged members of the Central Regional House of Chiefs to refrain from selling out the few parcels of land they inherited from their ancestors.
These parcels of land he said are valuable assests which could be used to sustain the dignity of their respective palaces and could also be passed on to the next generation for future developments.
Ing. Dr. Gyamera made these remarks in Cape Coast when he donated some two hundred copies of his books to the Central Regional House of Chiefs.
“Land sold is power sold and the world is growing so fast which doesn’t bring forth new parcels of land. Nananom, kindly manage the few parcels of land you inherited from your ancestors so you could also pass on some to the next generation for future developments,” he pleaded.
Together with the Managing Director of the company, Ing. Mrs Adwoa Gyamera, and their staff, the lecturer at the Department of Soil Science of the University of Cape Coast handed over the book titled “Ghana Land In Focus” to the chiefs.
Ing. Dr. Gyamera indicated the chiefs needed such resources in land administration following the global crisis (COVID-19) which has had enormous impact on the day-to-day activities of people.
“Nananom who would have been going about their normal duties of seeing to the proper demarcations and documentations of their lands haven’t been spared by this pandemic. Total and partial lockdowns have slowed down land related cases and, I think, this is the time for them to acquire more insight into land administration,” Dr. Gyamera said.
On behalf of the Central Regional House of Chiefs, the President, Obrempong Nyanful Krampah IX also expressed their appreciation towards the management of the company for having them in mind and assisting them with such a book to serve as a reference point in land management.
The book which covers areas such as land tenure system, land acquisition, guidelines to land registration at the lands department among others, seeks to provide in-depth knowledge in land acquisition in the country.
Gyam Engineering and Construction Works won the ‘Best Company’ in the Central region award at the 3rd edition of the Chamber of Business Awards.
