Examines the cultural issues considered in relation to compulsory purchase by the courts in Ghana and comments on the interpretations currently placed on such cases by the courts. Notes that in Ghana the contentious issue is often not the amount of compensation due but who is entitled to that compensation. Concludes that rights in customary land law will tend to fade away as the nature of the use to which the land is put becomes more permanent.
