“Sir John’s will is “Child’s play”. Mine will shock Ghanaians. Let me die and see” - Ken Agyapong

Hon. Kennedy Ohene Agyapong (born June 16, 1960) is a Ghanaian politician and businessman who represents Assin Central in Parliament for the New Patriotic Party (NPP).

Hon. Kennedy Agyapong has expressed his disappointment in most Ghanaians over making headlines with the leaked will of the late Sir John. While this business mogul went through this leaked will, he laughed off and said the will which was written by the former Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of the Forestry Commission, was just “peanuts”. Meaning, the most talked about will that has about 10 pages of shared assets is not a big deal for him.

While speaking to the supporters of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) in USA, the business mogul sent a message to Ghanaians that the content of his will is going to shock everyone.

He also noted that the needless controversy that went around might be the work of those in opposition in Ghana’s Parliament, the National Democratic Congress (NDC).

"Whatever NDC is setting as an agenda, it will come to haunt us. Sometimes there is no truth in it and so we have to be careful with Sir John's issue of six plots. Me, when I declare my assets you would be shocked because when I was reading Sir John's Will I said but this is peanut. "[lf] I put myself in the person's shoes that if am dead today, is this what is going to happen even within my own party? So we have to be careful," Kennedy Agyapong stated.

After the leakage and the controversy that the will came with, it was reported that the Office of the Special Prosecutor froze all assets on the will. The assets remain frozen until investigations into a suspected case of corruption against Sir John, with regard to his alleged improper acquisition of state lands within the Achimota forest and the Sakumono Ramsar site, is done.
