The will of late lawyer and General Secretary of the New Patriotic Party, Kwadwo Owusu Afriyie, commonly known as Sir John, which was leaked on social media, has caused many people to fear because of the assets he amassed while living.
He’s been trending all day for his Will, which contained a piece of the Achimota Forest that was just revealed to have been sold.
After a paper purporting to be from the Ministry of Lands and Natural Resources said that the Achimota Forest Reserve would no longer be a reserve, it became a topic of national attention on social media.
Ghanaians were outraged by the claim and expressed their displeasure on social media, but Minister of Lands and Natural Resources Samuel Abu Jinapor refuted rumors that the government was considering selling the Achimota forest.
However, in light of the recent release of Sir John’s will, it appears that the Achimota Forest is on the edge of becoming private property, since a portion of Sir John’s will claimed that he owed around 5 acres of the forest reserve.
Yaw Amoateng Afriyie, Sir John’s first son who got the largest portion of his various estates, is one of the beneficiaries of the extremely rich Will.
He also received 1 acre of property in Achimota Area, which sparked outrage because the forest belongs to the state.
He also received a mansion in Ogbojo and another in East Legon, as well as a further three-bedroom residence in East Legon.
President Akufo-Addo has been named as the Acting Deputy Chief Executive Officer of the Ghana Investment Promotion Centre, among other things including the assets inherited from his father (GIPC).
