The Minister-Designate for Religious and Chieftaincy Affairs, Ebenezer Kojo Kum has promised to introduce a DNA genealogy database that will help in tracing authentic successions to stools and skins.
He believes this will help in tackling chieftaincy disputes across the country.
This is expected to complement the National House of Chiefs’ initiative of documenting various successions to stools and skins.
“Already the National House of Chiefs has started the process of documenting the various successions to the stools and skins. When I am given the nod, I intend to collaborate with them on another level too, if possible, introduce a DNA genealogy database that will complement what is already being used.”
