Gomoa Fetteh Gripped in Conflict Over D/A Primary School Park

In Gomoa Fetteh, Central Region, a conflict is brewing that threatens to disrupt the harmony that has long defined the community. According to sources, the D/A Primary School Park which is the largest in the town, has become the battleground for a heated dispute between a self-acclaimed chief named Abor atta and the aggrieved youth. At the heart of the matter is the controversial attempt to convert the park which forms part of the Government land as far as the School is concerned into a funeral ground, pitting tradition against perceived necessity.
Abor atta, the self-aclaimed chief, sees the D/A Primary School Park as an ideal venue for funerals owing to its ample space, capable of accommodating a large number of mourners. The park has been there for ages before this self-aclaimed chief was born but he has cleared the whole green grass on the school park and replaced it with gravels with his autonomous decision. However, this proposal has sparked vehement opposition from the town’s youth, who adamantly reject any attempts by anyone to repurpose the park for funeral ceremonies.
The youth argue that each school and clan in the Gomoa Fetteh town already has dedicated parks for such solemn occasions and would vehemently resist the idea of altering the purpose of the D/A Primary School Park, contending that it holds a special significance as the venue for annual football matches during their festivals. They remain resolute to safeguard the park’s unique role in the community, refusing to yield to what they perceive as malicious attempts that would undermine their cultural traditions.
The clash of perspectives has led to heightened tensions between the youth and the self-aclaimed chief. This disagreement is not just a matter of land use but it symbolizes a deeper generational divide over the preservation of cultural practices and the accommodation of evolving needs within the community.
The youth argue that the park has more primary functions, including hosting football matches and contributing to the vibrant cultural fabric of Gomoa Fetteh. They fear that allowing funerals in the park would not only disrupt these cherished traditions but also undermine the importance of the other dedicated spaces within the community.
Concerned citizens are now rallying for the intervention of local authorities, particularly the District Chief Executive (DCE) and the Minister of Education. The conflict has escalated to the point where the use of Land Guards, and other private security personnel, has been reported. The involvement of these security forces only serves to worsen the tensions further, emphasizing the urgent need for a peaceful resolution.
The aggrieved youth, entrenched in their position, have drawn parallels with a similar issue from the past. They remain resolute and are unwilling to back down without a satisfactory resolution that would respect their cultural heritage.
