The Ministry of Chieftaincy and Religious Affairs has proposed to government to consider the payment of some allowances to all gazette divisional chiefs in the country.

This, the Ministry believes, would support and motivate the chiefs especially those behind illegal activities to fully back government in the fight against illegal mining.

Deputy Minister of Chieftaincy and Religious Affairs, Paul Essien, who disclosed this during the start of his four day tour to the Central Region further indicated that allowances for paramount chiefs have already been increased from GH¢500.00 to GH¢1,000.00.
