The District Chief Executive for Awutu-Senya, Mr Solomon Abbam-Quaye, has expressed his concern about double sales of land at Kasoa.

He called for a stop of the practice and appealed to land owners in the area not to engage in double sales of land to prospective buyers, which eventually lands them in court.

Mr Abbam Quaye said this in an address read for him at the launch of the first of a Pilot Programmes for the Area-Wide Registration of Rural Land Rights in the Awutu-Senya District at Awutu Bawjiase by the Millennium Development Authority (MiDA)

The MiDA also inaugurated a Continuously Operating Receiver System (CORS) Station to collect Global Positioning Systems (GPS) Data for the survey of farm project.

Mr Abbam Quaye expressed his regret that most communities in the area have sold greater proportion of their farm lands to commercial pineapple farmers.

He said this is not good enough for the youth, and that the children in the area would grow up to see that most of the land had been sold, with nothing left for them for farming.

According to him about 60 per cent of farmers engaged in pineapple farming can be found in the Awutu-Senya district.
