‘I have no difficulty publishing information on state lands’ – Lands Minister

Must Read

The Minister for Lands and Natural Resources, Mr Samuel Abu Jinapor has indicated to Parliament that President Akufo-Addo’s government is not frightened to release information on state lands to Parliament.

According to the Minister, the government has nothing to hide from Ghanaians, but the information being requested is the kind that demands a lot of work before it can be provided.

“It is not the case that I have difficulty or the President has difficulty or the government has difficulty in putting out the information. It is never so and I say this with all the candour I can marshal.

“I cannot be anxious about giving out this kind of information because that is going to cover President Rawlings’ time, that is going to cover President Kufour’s time, that is going to cover President Mills’ time, that is going to cover President Mahama’s time and President Akufo-Addo’s time.”

Mr Abu Jinapor further claimed that the Lands Commission still works manually without any form of digitalized system, hence providing information on all government lands across the nation since the beginning of the Fourth Republic is laborious.

He however assured the House that, his ministry would endeavour to furnish Parliament with the information requested as soon as the information are gathered from the lands commission.
