The LA and The OSU Stool Were The Owners Of The Achimota Forest - Sammy Gyamfi Reveals

Commissioner Jackson is an authority in the Greater Accra Region, and somewhere in the 1940s, 15 families petitioned him to make claims to the now Achimota Forest.

One of those 15 families was the Owoo family which was led by Edward Akufo-Addo. Commissioner Jackson at the end of his investigation found out that the rightful owners of the land were the La and OSU stool. The two stools were then compensated with £21,000 per the land made claims.

The government of Ghana has already paid for the lands per Jackson's commission. The Owoo family now insists that they are the rightful owners of the land and demand compensation.

We need a bi-partisan investigation into this case to ascertain who the right owners are and whether the compensation has been paid to them. Then, we will have no business with them.

According to the petition claim by the Owoo family in 2003 and 2006, the administration of John Agyekum Kuffour found out that they are the pre-acquisition owners of the Achimota Forest.

In 2008, the J. A Kuffour administration went into an agreement with the Owoo family to release 193 acres out of the Achimota Forest of which 13 will be used for purposes related to the Tetteh Quarshie and Mallam Motorway project.

Thus, making the Owoo family the rightful owners and not the two stools mentioned earlier.

This makes Jackson's commission findings and that of John Agyekum Kuffour contradict the real owners of the Achimota Forest.

These were the words of Sammy Gyamfi on Good Morning Ghana. Who do you think is the pre-acquisition owner of the Achimota Forest?
