Sierra Leone Ministry of Lands position on Aberdeen land dispute

Sierra Leone Ministry of Lands position on Aberdeen land dispute

The Ministry of Lands, Country Planning and Environment’s attention has been drawn to a story published by Satellite Newspaper and a few other newspapers on Monday 6th May 2013 in a drawn-out polemic over a piece of land situated off Cape Road, Aberdeen, back of Bintumani  Hotel.

According to the Ministry the land in question is state land, and as such all matters relating to that land should be directed to the Ministry for verification and technical advice.

The Ministry has put in place systems regarding land distribution, acquisition, and allocation, as well as equal opportunity access to land to all Sierra Leoneans without regard to sex, creed, and status, political and regional background.

The Ministry is also calling on the public about its newly created Complaint and Standards Unit which is charged with the responsibility of adjudicating/addressing complaints relating to land disputes.

The public should note also that the Ministry respects and adheres to the freedom and access to information, and hereby states that the author of the aforementioned article did not contact the Ministry to the best of our knowledge, contrary to the allegation in the said article that the author contacted the Ministry for its position.

The Ministry is the only entity outside of the judiciary system with the technical capacity and ability to manage land issues and mitigate land conflict; and that any issue relating to land must be crosschecked with the Ministry before publishing for the consumption of general public.
