The Okpelor Sowah Din family of Nmai Dzorn-Teshie upon the authority of its acting Head, Nii Okpelor Sowah Ablorh has had the Lands Commission demarcate some parcels of land at South Nmai Dzorn in the Adentan Municipality, in the Greater Accra Region last Thursday.
The demarcating team from the Lands Commission was led by Mark Adabo, Assistant Geomatic Engineer, Survey and Mapping Division of the Commission.
In an interview with some journalists, he said “the exercise will help us to be able to compare and reaffirm the boundary lines demarcated as requested by the family to the information and documentation at our outfit.”
He also used the opportunity to advise individuals, families, particularly chiefs to ensure that their lands are properly demarcated with the required boundaries to forestall any misunderstanding among families, especially at a time when lands could be registered digitally by the commission.
Spokesperson for the Nmai Dzorn Okpelor Sowah Din family, Clement Thompson, also said the boundary demarcation was a peaceful exercise aimed at ensuring clarity of the land boundaries between Nmai Dzorn and Nungua, to forestall any misunderstanding that may arise in future.
“Our mission here is simple but important as we are here with the Lands Commission to help demarcate the boundary between Nmai Dzorn and Nungua to avoid any confusion and litigation in future though there has not been any misunderstanding recorded among us,” he stressed.
Accompanying the family for the exercise which lasted for two days were officers from the Greater Accra Regional Police Command.
Mr. Thompson, on behalf of the Okpelor Sowah Din family, thanked the Ghana Police Service and the Lands Commission for their cooperation during the entire exercise.
