Nii Okwei Kinka Dowuona VI, President of the Osu Traditional Council, has urged companies to build good relationships with chiefs.
He said a good relationship with the chiefs, who are custodians of the land, would go a long way to create the enabling environment for businesses to grow.
Nii Kinka Dowuona, also the Chairman of the Socio-Economic Committee of the Greater Accra Regional House of Chiefs, gave the advice in an interview with the Ghana News Agency after members of the committee had toured the Gold Recovery Ghana Limited at Kpone in the Greater Accra Region.
The tour was on the theme: “Landlord/Tenant Relationship.”
The members of the committee are Nene Abram Akuaku III, the Ada Mantse and the President of the Greater Accra Regional House of Chiefs, Osongaah Nii Adjei Kraku II, Tema Mantse, Nene Atsure Benta III, the Acting President of the Prampram Traditional Council and Nene Kanor Attiapah III, Acting President of the Ningo Traditional Council.
Nii Kinka Dowuona said chiefs were not only mandated to handle chieftaincy issues but were also responsible for the welfare of society.
Mr Tiyani E. Maswanganye, the Manager of the Gold Recovery Ghana Limited, who briefed the chiefs on the company’s activities, said it bought gold dust waste from Obuasi and processed it into steel liners for the mining industry in Ghana.
The company also manufactures aluminum products for export.
Mr Philip Sackitey, the Procurement Officer of the company, took the chiefs round the facility to see some of its products and acquaint themselves with its activities.
