Nana Poma Kwaaduah XVIII, Chief of Akatakyiwa and the Adontenhene of Nkusukum Traditional Area in the Central Region, has called for the establishment of Appropriate Dispute Resolution (ADR) committees within the country’s Houses of Chiefs.

According to him, the creation of ADR committees within the National and Regional House of Chiefs through to the Traditional Councils will help in resolving non-criminal cases in an amicable and expeditious manner.

He is optimistic that the involvement of ADR committees would assist the Judicial Committees in the various houses of chiefs, to effectively resolve cases to clear the caseload.

He believes that when equipped with knowledge on the various ADR mechanisms such as Negotiation, Mediation, and Arbitration, traditional authorities will be well-skilled to handle all forms of disputes.

This year’s ADR Week celebration was marked from Monday, July 19, to Friday, July 23, with all lower courts in the country settling cases through ADR mechanisms.

It was held on the theme, ‘Making our courts user-friendly through the use of ADR.”
