He has called on chiefs and settlers of the Okyeman Stool Lands not to submit land documents that do not have Osagyefuo Amoatia Ofori Panin, Okyenhene™s signature to the Koforidua Lands Commission for registration.
Nana Mbeah said the Okyehene was the 'owner' of the stool lands and that land documents without his signature were invalid.
Nana Mbeah gave the warning in an interview with the Ghana News Agency during a three-day tour of the traditional area, to inspect Okyeman Stool Lands boundaries.
He visited places including Okanta-Odumase, Panpanso, Ntoaso, Nsawam-Adoagyiri, Sakyikrom, Nyanoase and Kofi Kwei after he was informed by some farmers of land guards' harassment, particularly at Okanta-Odumase, near Nsawam.
Nana Mbeah cautioned people who employed the services of land guards, especially estate developers to desist from the act, saying, Okyeman needed peace for development.
He said plans were advanced to clear a portion of a land at Adoagyiri for the construction of the Akyem Abuakwa Youth Development Office by Okyeman.
Nana Mbeah therefore, called on all farmers whose farms would be affected by the project to proceed to Akyem Apapam and Okogyeamanfie at Kibi for negotiation of compensations.
