Abu Jinapor is summoned by Parliament regarding state lands.

The Lands and Forestry Committee of Parliament has summoned Samuel Abu Jinapor, the sector minister, to testify about the return of state lands to some families and traditional authorities.

This follows the declassification of areas of the Achimota forest as a reserve, as well as other issues that have sparked public debate.

The Ranking Member, Dr Rashid Pelpuo, the Ranking Member and Wa Central MP, told the media that an important meeting will be held on Tuesday.

Authorities concerned with the preservation of government lands are demonstrating accountability in the land's use. We're all aware of the land dispute in Achimota. While we consider it, other difficulties arise, including our lands in Kumasi and other regional capitals, "he explained.

He promised that the Committee's minority members would demand accountability for state lands and that he would follow up on matters concerning the entire state's lands.

"We've gotten to the point where we think we need to talk about it," he added. "We need to get the Minister to come before the Lands and Forestry Committee and explain to us why the government is finding it compelling to give away lands that it purchased years ago."

He also stated that they will seek accountability from everyone who has seized possession at any time. He went on to say that the committee would meet with all of the key stakeholders.
