Sir John's Properties : All the 75 properties contained in Sir John’s will

There has been intense scrutiny on the will of the late Kwadwo Owusu Afriyie, the former CEO of the Forestry Commission.

There are 75 properties on the list, including houses, land, bank accounts, investments, businesses, guns, and clothes.

Mr. Afriyie, who was more commonly known as Sir John, served as General Secretary of the ruling New Patriotic Party (NPP) from 2010 to 2014.

There has been some controversy surrounding his will, following the discovery that he owned lands inside the Achimota Forest.

The reason for this is that President Akufo-Addo recently signed an executive instrument declaring part of the Achimota Forest was no longer a forest reserve.

The move was criticized as a ploy by critics to put the land into the hands of the ruling elite, a claim the government vehemently denies.

Sir John owning properties in the Achimota Forest appears to heighten deep-seated mistrust towards the government and its actions.

Some have also suggested that Sir John's ownership of the lands might constitute a conflict of interest, as he was the Forestry Commission's CEO from March 2017 until his death on July 1, 2020.

Here’s a full list of the properties in Sir John’s will as compiled by The Fourth Estate:
