Otumfuo Osei Tutu II has been granted access to a section of state land in Kumasi’s Ridge Residential Area.

The release was made to the Asantehene on behalf of and in trust for subjects of the Golden Stool, according to the Ashanti Regional Coordinating Council.

A letter dated May 18, indicated that the gesture is pursuant to the issuance of “Executive Instrument 432 of 2021 by Government in respect of Redevelopment of Sector 18 of Kumasi, which was published in the Ghana Gazette on 31st December, 2021.”

Mrs. Emelia Ayebeng Botchway, Chief Director of the Ashanti Regional Coordinating Council, signed the letter on behalf of Regional Minister Simon Osei Mensah addressed to “All Public Institutions – Ashanti Region.”

Read the details of the letter:

  1. This is to inform Public and State Organizations about the issuance of Executive Instrument (E.1.) 432 of 2021 by Government in respect of Redevelopment of Sector 18 of Kumasi, which was published in the Ghana Gazette on 31st December, 2021. This instrument has revested and released a portion of the state land at the Ridge Residential Area in Kumasi to the Asantehene on behalf of and in trust for subjects of the Golden Stool.
  2. The released portion with an area of 409.24 acres, spans from the North-Western Section of the Military Barracks near Komfo Anokye Teaching Hospital. The site is along the Bekwai Road as its Western Boundary to the Santasi Round About, with the Southern By-Pass as the Southern Boundary. The land also lies towards Dakwodwom to the KCC/State Experimental School, along the Danyame Stream to the north, with the Cedar Road as the Eastern Boundary.
  3. The revested land contains both privately-owned properties to be maintained and state bungalows to be relocated to the area retained by Government. All leaseholders of private and public residential and other properties within the revested area are also to attorn tenancy to the Asantehene.   This means annual ground rent has to be paid to the Golden Stool by all lessees with the coming into force of the Executive, Instrument (E.1.) 432, with the Asantehene possessing the reversionary interest.
  4. All Heads of Public Institutions are to take note of the change of status of the land at Ridge Residential Area in Kumasi and to refrain from constructing any new building or redevelop any official bungalow or undertake any elaborate maintenance work on the properties within the enclave.
