One-week ultimatum for all leases on Achimota forest- Lands Minister Demands

Following EI 144 which declassifies portions of the Achimota Forest reserve and the release of a purported Will and Final testament of the late Kwadwo Owusu Afriyie (Sir John) on social media, the Achimota Forest has come under heavy controversy with regards to its ownership and purpose of use.

Following an earlier statement by the Lands and Natural Resources Minister to act on any improper acquisition of public lands including Achimota Forest, the Minister, Hon. Samuel Abu Jinapor, MP, has revealed through a press release that a letter has been sent to the Chief Executive of the Forestry Commission demanding the Commission to submit to his office all leases granted by the Commission over the 1,185 acres of land and any amendments or variations to those leases as well as subleases or assignments on any part of the Forest. 

This request according to the release titled “Request for information on all transactions affecting the Achimota Forest” will enable the Hon. Minister to take appropriate action regarding matters on the forest.

The Minister has hence promised to deal with the matter and all other Land and Natural Resource matters transparently and with integrity in good faith.
