Attention: James E K Dadson

Dear Sir:

RE: REQUEST FOR INFORMATION CONCERNING RELEASED/RELINQUISHED LANDS

We have received your letter dated 29 June 2022 (ref SCR/LCS3/V.7/2) on the above matter. We deeply appreciate your confirmation that you will provide us with the information we require. We also appreciate your point that your officers have to manually go through files to compile data on the information we seek, and that the various Regional Lands Commissions are working on this matter. We further appreciate your assurance that once the information is ready, you will provide it to us.

We must however respectfully draw your attention to item #6 of our list of demands in our letter dated 2 June 2022, ref OG/2022/007, which was:

‘A copy of any existing written Ministerial policy direction to the Lands Commission on these and other related matters.‘

We believe that if such a written Ministerial policy direction exists, you could send that to us right now, while we wait for the rest of the information. Kindly confirm the existence or otherwise of such a written Ministerial policy, and if it exists, kindly provide it to us at your earliest convenience.

And concerning the rest of the information we seek, we will send you a reminder a week from today, and every week thereafter, to check on the status of the efforts to procure the information for us.

Yours in the service of God and Country

OccupyGhana
