Ghanaian chiefs have become common land agents; instead of being highly respected -Adiib Saani

 A foreign policy and security analyst has expressed worries about the rising disrespect for the chieftaincy institution in the country.

Mr Adiib Saani expressed this worry while reacting to a chieftaincy dispute that has led to some fifteen people sustaining various degrees of injuries in the Western Region at a ceremony to inaugurate a mining company by the president of the National House of Chief, NanaOgyeahohoo Yaw Gyebi II during the week.

Mr Adiib Saani expressed this worry speaking on the 505 evening news analysis programme hosted by Koku Lumor on Accra-based Class 93.1 FM on Thursday, July 21, 2022.

According to him, many of the chiefs have lost their sense of responsibility to their communities in the country.

He was quick to add that there are equally highly respected chiefs like Otumfour Osei Tutu, the Asnatehene in the Ashanti Region, Ya-na Abubakari II, the overlord of the Dagbon traditional area in the Northern Region and Nayiri of the Mamprugu Traditional Area in the Upper East Region, Naa Abdulai Mahami Sherigu.

He was of the view that these are fine traditional leaders who are doing some great for the nation but others are not living up to the expectation.

'It is the reason when many of them speak they are not taken seriously by their subjects adding that the same situation is emerging in Ghana's body politics, he said.

He warned that there is massive anger among Ghanaians and very soon many politicians will be chased away in their attempts to campaign in the country

He argued that a bulk of the traditional rulers have become common land agents who engage in multiple sales of lands without any shame whatsoever.
