In a series of meetings aimed at enhancing public education and collaboration with our major stakeholders on stool lands administration, the Central Regional Office engaged with the Mankessim and Anomabo Traditional Councils respectively.

Meeting the Traditional Council 

The Office paid a working visit to the Mankessim Traditional Council. The objectives of the visit were: to formally inform the council about the commencement of operations of the newly established District Office within the Municipal Assembly, sensitize the Council on the mandates of the Office and solicit the Council’s support to ensure smooth operations within the traditional area.

The Council received the news with enthusiasm and assured the Office their full support for the newly established office and its operations. “We are pleased with the establishment of the Office and will collaborate closely to ensure effective management of our Stool Lands,” a council member remarked.

Newly established Office

Subsequently, the Office called on a similar working visit to the Anomabo Traditional Council with the sole purpose of officially informing the Council of the operations of the newly established Office within the Municipal Assembly’s premises.

Mr. Isaac Oppong-Yeboah, the Central Regional Stool Lands Officer used this opportunity to educate the Council members on the mandates of the Office and addressed various issues related to land administration.

 The engagement was interactive and informative, allowing traditional councils members to gain an in-depth knowledge of the role of the Office in stool lands administration across the country and as well, their communities. These visits are part of the Office’s mandate and broader strategy to strengthen relationships with Traditional Authorities and Stools to ensure transparency and equitable distribution of stool land revenues to beneficiary communities.
