Dr. Henry Seidu Danaa, Minister of Chieftaincy and Traditional Affairs Thursday observed that “chieftaincy is about solving problems and not sitting in palanquins.”

He made the observation at a durbar in his honour at Tapa-Abotoase, to mark his working visit to the fishing and trading community.

Dr. Daanaa underscored the importance of chieftaincy and said it was a serious business, which should bring development to people and not only chiefs riding in palanquins, drumming and dancing.

He therefore charged traditional rulers to rise up to the responsibility for the rapid socio-economic development of their areas.

Dr. Danaa said government’s policy was to offer chiefs the platform to play vital roles in bringing development to their areas and urged them to take advantage of those opportunities.

He asked chiefs to actively involve queen-mothers in decision making and collaborate with their metropolitan, municipal and district assemblies for accelerated growth.

“In our constitution, chiefs refer to queen-mothers as well, so we have to involve them actively to ensure holistic development,” Dr. Daanaa said.

Okoforobour Baffour Kwame Asante II, Tapahene commended Dr. Daanaa for the visit.

He told the Ghana News Agency in an interview that the Tapa Traditional Area was constructing a Senior High School for the community and was also putting up an ultra-modern palace.

Okoforobour Asante urged government to confiscate disputed lands to the state as a measure to forestall land litigation in the country.

He also called for the enforcement of the law on land demarcation and proper registration.

Earlier, Dr. Danaa met with members of Anfoega Traditional Council at Anfoega.
