Pay us more, 10% on monies from stool lands not enough – Ashanti Regional Chiefs to gov’t


The Ashanti Regional House of Chiefs has issued a compelling appeal to the government to reconsider the current revenue distribution from stool lands.

Traditional leaders argue that the current allocation of 10 percent to traditional authorities is insufficient and fails to reflect the significant role they play in land stewardship.

During a meeting with Dr. Mahamudu Bawumia, the flagbearer of the New Patriotic Party, the Chiefs expressed their dissatisfaction with the consistent stance of successive governments on this matter.

They emphasized that despite numerous appeals, there has been no positive adjustment to the revenue share.

They emphasized the urgency of the matter and urged the government to engage in constructive dialogue with traditional authorities to find a mutually beneficial resolution.
