We Have No Record Sir John Owned Achimota Forest Land – Lands Commission



The government says there are no records at the Lands Commission to support claims that the late former Chief Executive Officer of the Forestry Commission, Kwadwo Owusu Afriyie, also known as Sir John, acquired portions of the Achimota Forest Reserve land under contention.

The Commission made this known when officials of the Lands and Natural Resources Ministry paid a working visit to the Greater Accra Regional office of the Lands Commission to assess the damage caused by Saturday’s floods.

Speaking to the media, the Executive Secretary of the Lands Commission, James Dadson, and the Deputy Lands Minister, Benito Owusu-Bio, both noted that such reports are inaccurate.

“There is nothing in our records concerning that. What you read is what I have read. We don’t have anything recorded here for Sir John as far as our records are concerned,” James Dadson said.

A purported copy of the will of the late Sir John has been widely shared on social media which sees him bequeathing portions of lands he has in the Achimota Forest to a relative.

The development has sparked anger among many Ghanaians with many taking to social media to express their disappointment over the fact that the former Forestry Commission head apportioned to himself part of the forest.
