Ministry Of Lands And Resources Replies To The Achimota Forest Land Sale Saga (See Photos)

The catastrophic death of the late chief executive officer of Forestry Commission of Ghana, affectionately known as Sir John, struck many with shock in Ghana. However, some time after his death, his will finally came out in May 2022, almost 2 years after his demise.

It is not a surprise that a family man will decide to make a will to leave his possessions to his family, friends, and relatives upon his death. However, what shook the country is his said will is the fact that there was a portion of public land being offered as a "parting gift". This sparked anger and controversy in Ghana.

Amidst these troubling times, the ministry of lands and resources, communicating through the ministry of information, has on 24th May 2022, released an official statement declaring their stance on this issue.

In a nutshell, they insist that no public land, either at Achimota Forest or anywhere can be one's possession to pass on to relatives. They also find no claim to any said land by the late Mr. Kwadwo Owusu Afriyie. Find attached the document below.

What is your take on this?
