Late Lawyer and General Secretary of the New Patriotic Party, Kwadwo Owusu Afriyie, also known as Sir John’s will which has leaked on social media has caused many to panic following the properties he managed to amass while he was alive.
He has been trending all day over the Will he left for his relatives which included a section of the Achimota Forest which was recently revealed that it had been sold.
The Achimota Forest Reserve became a topic of national interest on social media after a document purported to be from the Ministry of Lands and Natural Resources said it will be no more a reserve.
Ghanaians flared up and raised concerns about the report on social media but the Minister for Lands and Natural Resources, Samuel Abu Jinapor dismissed social media reports that the government is keen on selling the Achimota forest.
But in the latest development following the leak of Sir John’s will, it has become evident that the Achimota Forest is on the verge of becoming private property as a section of Sir John’s will stated that he owed about 5 acres of the forest reserve.
One of the beneficiaries of the very juicy Will is Yaw Amoateng Afriyie, the first son of Sir John who had the greater share of his many properties.
Amongst other things, he got 1 acre of land at Achimota Forest which has caused a public outcry because the forest is for the state.
He also got a Mansion at Ogbojo and one at East Legon and an extra 3 bedroom house at East Legon.
Among all other things and the properties inherited from his father, President Akufo-Addo he has been appointed as the Acting Deputy Chief Executive Officer of the Ghana Investment Promotion Centre (GIPC).
