The Ghana Minister for Lands and Natural Resources, Samuel Abdulai Jinapor, says government is set to digitise all records at the Lands Commission to reduce the turnaround time for registration of lands.
According to him, when the Commission is fully digitalised, processing land documents for registration could take only a maximum of 30 days to complete.
Mr Jinapor said the government is engaging the private sector to provide the needed support to successfully launch the scheme.
“We are engaging the private sector to provide the capital and technical expertise required to implement this scheme.”
Mr Jinapor said this during the inauguration of the reconstituted Governing Board of the Northern Regional Lands Commission in Tamale.
The 23-Member Board, expected to serve a four-year tenure, was sworn into office by the Northern Regional Supervising High Court Judge, His Lordship Justice Richard Mac Kogyapwah.
