Land Records Must Be Digitized For Effective Regulation, In Ghana - Samuel Jinapor

Land Records Must Be Digitized For Effective Regulation, In Ghana - Samuel Jinapor

Lands and Natural Resources Minister Samuel A. Jinapor has backed calls for comprehensive digitization of the records at the lands commission to help solve the many problems associated with land administration in the country.

Contributing to discussions on Metro TV’s "Good Morning, Ghana," Wednesday, December 1, 2021, on the need for a lasting solution to the problem, the member of parliament for Damongo expressed the belief that the attainment of reliable data was key in solving the problem, which, according to him, remains complicated and a headache to the country’s leader.

‘We need a proper, comprehensive digitization of the records of the lands commission which is anchored on transparency and integrity’.

Admitting the difficulty of solving land-related issues in Ghana, the minister said the problem consumes much more of his attention than the Galamsey menace.

Land administration and problems relating to land in our country is more complicated and much more of a headache in my view than even perhaps even galamsey .it is a very major issue on the table. Galamsey and forestry and other areas take my attention a great deal as a minister but land administration late my attention even a lot more’.

He hinted that the successful implementation of a national digitisation program for the lands commission could hold the key to resolving this long-standing national issue.

Mr. Jinapor opposed the sale of state lands to individuals, saying that a straightforward, unequivocal approach should be employed to protect state lands from individual interests.
