The government this week paid a total of 684,750,000 cedis to 10 family heads at the Bukere section of Bolgatanga as part-payment for their parcels of land used for the construction of the Catering Rest House in Bolgatanga.

Presenting the cheques, the Deputy Upper East Regional Minister, Alhaji Awudu Yiremeah urged the beneficiaries to use the monies judiciously and to refrain from engaging in excessive drinking and marrying many wives.

He urged them to use the monies on profitable ventures that would benefit their entire families. "You must not change your lifestyle by drinking bottles of beer instead of your usual pito", the Minister stressed.

Alhaji Yiremeah appealed to the beneficiaries to exercise restraint while government processed the rest of their monies for them and urged the Regional Office of the Lands Commission to speed up the process of payment.

Payment of compensation to the Bukere land owners was to have taken place on Thursday last week but could not come on because of the absence of some principal witnesses to endorse the claim documents as demanded by law.
