I’ll Resolve Ga And Awutu Senya East Boundary Dispute —NPP Chair Promises


The New Patriotic Party (NPP) Chairman of the Bortianor-Ngleshie-Amanfro Constituency of the Greater Accra Region, Mr Paul Ibrahim Baako, has insisted that his promise of finding a lasting solution to resolve the long-unending land boundary dispute between chiefs in communities within Ga South Municipality and the people of Awutu Senya East Municipality in the Central Region, when given the nod to become the new Municipal Chief Executive (MCE) of Ga South Municipal Assembly, was not a mere political gimmick.

The NPP staunch member who is a government appointee at the Ga South Municipal Assembly stressed that it can easily be done.

According to him, having been somebody who was born and bred and even lived all his life in the municipality, he was conversant with this pressing issue between the two traditional areas.

He asserted that he knows ways to use to settle the issue which was creating tension and confusion between the two ethnic groups.

“We have so many boundary issues between the people of Ga South and Awutu Senya East. Our lands stretch from Langma, Tuba, Domeabra and Amanfro communities, it is where we share common boundary with the people of Awutu Senya East and that as the Municipal Chief Executive if you don’t understand the real issue concerning the boundary and the chiefs come to you as MCE to prevent the people of Awutu Senya East from laying incursions into our territories, you will feel the chiefs are disturbing you.

“But if you are a local boy like me who stays with the people and generally understands the boundary issue and also knows that the issue has become a matter of importance to the people of Ga State you must ensure government intervenes by way of finding a lasting solution to this problem.

…So l have the technical know-how to bring this issue to an end when l am appointed the new MCE of the area,” Mr Baako further assured.

He disclosed that the areas which fall within the administrative jurisdiction of Ga South Municipality which was set up in 2007 are Okoman, Oduntia, Ashalaja, Kwame Anum, Obakrowa, Krohohwe, Hobor, Adiembra, Asabade, Ngleshie Amanfrom, Torhuse, Iron City, Amanfro Top, Amanfro Kingtown and Machigeni.

Others are Galilea, Omankope, Tomefa, Workers Brigade, Bortianor, Old Aklaku, New Galilea, Galilea North, Tsokomey, Faajimore, Wiejoshie and Shiayena.

Mr Baako gave these assurance while speaking in an exclusive interview with Accra-based Rainbow Radio which was monitored by DAILY Analyst.

According to him, although government was doing well by way of improving road networks in the area, he was quick to state that when appointed as MCE, he will do more to ensure that all the deplorable roads were fixed within the electoral areas of Ga South Municipality.

He further promised to fix the drainage systems in the area which will go a long to stop flooding of houses when it rains.

“We know in Ga South that there are no proper market centres and that traders have to travel from Accra to Kasoa markets to buy and sell which situation does not help them.

“There are no busy markets for the traders to buy and sell in Ga South Municipality apart from the Malam Junction Market which even falls within the Weija-Gbawe Municipality.

“I am very close to the chiefs and queen mothers in the area and l will advise them to make lands available to start building a proper market centre for the people of Ga South,” Mr Baako pledged.
