Mr. Moses Bukari Mabengba, Northern Regional Minister, in a speech read on his behalf, congratulated the chiefs and charged traditional rulers to apply the new chieftaincy Act of 2008 in resolving land and chieftaincy disputes.

He expressed worry about reports of indiscriminate sale of land to individuals and organizations in the region since it could negatively affect agriculture.
