Kennedy Ohene Agyapong, the Member of Parliament for Assin Central of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), has shrugged off the controversy over Sir John’s will.
According to him, the assets listed in the leaked will of the former Forestry Commission Chief Executive Officer (CEO) are “peanuts.”
The maverick legislator told members of the NPP in the United States of America that the items included in his will will amaze Ghanaians.
Kennedy Agyapong also stated that the uproar over the will is unnecessary and that it may be the product of the opposition National Democratic Congress (NDC).
“Whatever the NDC’s aim is, it will come back to haunt us. Because there is sometimes no truth in it, we must be cautious with Sir John’s issue of six plots. “[lf] I put myself in the person’s shoes that if I die today, is this what will happen even inside my own party?” [lf] I put myself in the person’s shoes that if I die today, is this what will happen even within my own party? As a result, we must exercise caution,” Kennedy Agyapong added.
All of the assets in the claimed will were recently frozen by the Office of the Special Prosecutor.
This is to allow the Special Prosecutor’s office to undertake an investigation, according to the Special Prosecutor.
Sir John’s alleged inappropriate acquisition of public property within the Achimota forest and the Sakumono Ramsar site prompted the Office of the Special Prosecutor to launch an inquiry last week into a suspected case of corruption against him.
A rumored copy of Sir John’s will went viral online, inciting outrage among many Ghanaians.
However, Abraham Amaliba, a member of the NDC legal team, stated that the Special Prosecutor cannot charge a late guy.
He believes that the probe should not be limited to Sir John and that it should be conducted by a nonpartisan committee.
