New Land Titles deputy commissioner appointed

The National,Monday June 27th, 2016

LAWYER and former State solicitor Jackson Gah has been appointed as the deputy commissioner for the Land Titles Commission.
Gah signed his contract before Governor-General Sir Michael Ogio at Government House last Friday.
He was with the Public Prosecutor’s Office before going into private
practice for 15 years.
“I was asked to return to the government and be appointed deputy Land Titles Commissioner,” he said.
“I was dealing with this matter before when I was the State Solicitor.”
He said it was not an easy job.
“It takes someone gutsy to come and hear the cases because of the nature of the cases,” he said.
“It is an area of law where we deal with the lives of people and the issues are often very sensitive.
“Land issues are always sensitive. They are challenging.”
He worked for the Public Prosecutor’s Office for 10 years.
He closed his Kimbe and Kokopo offices last December and joined the Land Titles Commission.
