The announcement by President Mills to the effect that the process of transferring government lands to private developers has been suspended with immediate effect is a good decision.
The Enquirer sees the move as a way of bringing sanity into the system as far as the reallocation of government lands is concerned.
We are calling for thorough investigations into how the lands were disposed off and the people behind such reallocation.
Again, those who will be found to have made deliberate attempts to reallocate the lands without the due process should be brought to book.
It is the hope of the paper that people will not begin to read meanings into the attempt by the government to go into the reallocation of the government lands.
As a nation we cannot continue to plunder state resources and assets anyhow without taking future developments into consideration.
We are of the view that government lands situated at strategic places should not be reallocated at all because of posterity.
If things are not done carefully, a lot of money will be used by the government to acquire lands for use in the future.
Nobody should be left out, all those who acquired the lands through suspicious means should be made to explain how they got those lands.
