The Parliamentary select Committee on Lands and Forestry is currently holding a stakeholders forum on the proposed Land Bill, 2018 which is before Parliament.

Chairman of the Committee, Francis Manu- Adabor who is also the Member of Parliament for Ahafo Ano South East said the meeting is aimed at discussing views and perspectives of Civil Society Organizations and other stakeholders.

According to him, everybody is a stakeholder in the land administration system of the country hence the need to show keen interest in the process.

He urged participants to express their candid opinions on what should be added or removed from the proposed Bill.

Ranking Member of the Committee, Collins Dauda urged all to bring their rich expertise to bear in drafting a law that will stand the test of time to address the land administration challenges of the country which has become a canker.

Minister for Lands and Natural Resources, John Peter Amewu in March, 2018 introduced the Land Bill, 2018 to Parliament and was subsequently referred to the Committee on Lands and Forestry by the Speaker of Parliament.
