Following the suggestions of the Sole Inquirer to find a long-term solution to the Bulgarian Embassy property dispute, the government has formed a three-member committee through the Ministry of Lands and Natural Resources.
Benito Owusu-Bio, the Deputy Minister for Lands and Natural Resources, will chair the meeting.
This decision follows a meeting on Tuesday, May 17th, 2022, between Yanko V. Yordanov, Bulgarian Ambassador to Nigeria with accreditation to Ghana, and Samuel A. Jinapor, Minister of Lands and Natural Resources.
Mr Jinapor assured the media that the administration and the Ministry are determined to working together to find peaceful solutions that will put the problem to rest completely, as recommended by the Sole Inquirer.
"You will recall that Justice Retired Kwasi Anto Ofori-Atta advised that I utilize my good offices to find an acceptable solution to this issue, which is what has led to this meeting with the Bulgarian Ambassador."
The Minister stated that the meeting has enhanced the two countries' already long-standing and friendly relationship, and that he hopes for a more far-reaching consequence from the meeting.
"I'm looking forward to developing a connection with you that extends beyond land issues to tackle larger topics."
The Minister thanked the Envoy for his leadership, sense of unity, and corporate spirit on behalf of the Bulgarian government and people.
The Minister also complimented the President for his leadership and involvement in the subject, praising his expertise and diplomacy.
He told the Envoy that President Akufo-wish Addo's to resolve the situation is one that he, as Minister for Lands and Natural Resources, will carry out to the letter.
Yanko Yordanov, the Bulgarian Ambassador to Ghana, praised the Minister of Lands and Natural Resources and the President of the Republic for intervening personally and committing to resolve the deadlock between the Bulgarian Embassy and the Private Developer.
"Bulgaria is grateful to every Ghanaian institution, including Parliament and notably the Presidency, and I'm extremely hopeful that with their help, we will be able to find a long-term solution," he said.
Mr. Yordanov further informed the Minister that everyone affected by the demolition of the Bulgarian Embassy, especially Bulgarians, understands that the Ghanaian government had no role in the demolition and that the incident will not detract from the two countries' 60-year friendship.
The three-member group includes Mr Maxwell Adu-Nsarfoa, the Ministry's Technical Director for Lands, and a delegate from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
