‘No records to show Sir John owned lands in Achimota forest’ – Lands Ministry

The Ministry of Lands and Natural Resources has reacted to the viral Will of late Sir John.

According to the Ministry, there is no evidence to show that the former CEO of the Forestry Commission owns portions of land in the Achimota forest.

The will, which has been sighted and confirmed by The Fourth Estate, contains four parcels of specified and unspecified acres of land in the Achimota Forest, which the late politician bequeathed to family and friends.

Page 4 of the will, Kwadwo Owusu Afriyie, whose office was situated at the Achimota Forest until his death, stated that “I give my land situated at the Achimota Forest in the name of Jakaypro Limited and measuring 5.541 acres to the following persons forever.

Yaw Amoateng Afriyie – One (1) acre
Eva Akua Afriyie – One (1) acre
Ivy Akua Afriyie – One (1) acre
Elizabeth Asare Boateng (aka Mother) – One (1) acre
Michael Owusu – 1.541 acres
Page 5 of the will also states that “I give my land also situate at the Achimota Forest in the name of Fasoh Limited and measuring 0.987acres to my nephews Michael Owusu, Yaw Boadu and Kwabena Amoateng forever.”

“I jointly own a piece of land at Achimota Forest with Charles Owusu. Upon my demise, my portion of the said land should be given to Ruth Korkor Odonkor,” it added.

“I give my portion of land that jointly own at the Achimota Forest in the name of DML Limited to Elizabeth Asare Boateng who at the time of making this will is domiciled in the USA forever,” the will stated.

Sir John in the will indicated that he owned land at the Ramsar area in Sakumono in Accra.
